Panthers stay third in state rankings

Early success lifts several individuals

The Powell Panther wrestling team remains ranked third in Class 3A despite a hot start to the season. The Panthers’ fate was announced in the lastest batch of wrestling rankings posted at

Star Valley remains number one in Class 3A. Douglas is ranked second, followed by Powell. Worland, Torrington and Lander follow the Panthers in the standings.

While Powell’s position as a team hasn’t changed, the latest batch of rankings showed a significant amount of juggling among the individuals ranked at various weight classes. The Panthers’ lineup now features a pair of No. 1 ranked individuals as freshman Chance Karst ascended to the top of the 113-pound rankings while senior Tyler Patterson did the same at 170 pounds.

Karst had started the season ranked seventh at 106 pounds. Patterson’s name appeared in the No. 2 slot on the preseason chart at 170 pounds.

The new rankings also showcase a rarity — the Panthers are currently credited with having three of the top five 126-pound wrestlers in Wyoming 3A. That logjam sees Colbee Craig third, Dylan Rood fourth and Colton Parham fifth overall.

Complete individual rankings for Powell are:

106 — 7. Noah Wozney

113 — 1. Chance Karst

120 — 3. Nic Urbach

126 — 3. Colbee Craig, 4. Dylan Rood, 5. Colton Parham

132 — 3. Andrew Feller

138 — 4. Kye Catlin, 6. Matt Widdicombe

160 — 3. Mike Mundy, 6. Anthony Lujan

170 — 1. Tyler Patterson

195 — 2. Zach Thompson

220 — 5. Erik Denney

285 — 3. Riley Stringer, 6. Rowdy Gard
