Allen's 4-2 mark best for RHS at Ron Thon tourney

Feb 11, 2014 - By Bruce Tippets, Sports Editor

Riverton wrestling coach Jay Galey knew the Ron Thon Memorial Invitational was going to be tough for the Wolverines.

The 42-team tournament drew the elite wrestlers in the sport to Wolverine Gym for two days of heated competition.

Riverton's Tyler Allen was the workhorse, going 4-2 at 152 pounds and just missing the medal stand.

After losing to Ellis Toomer from Cokeville in the opening round.

Allen got back on track by winning three straight matches against Rock Springs, Wind River and a Kelly Walsh wrestler.

In the consolation match, Dylan Klein from Rawlins won a 12-9 victory.

Chris Holcomb built a 2-2 mark at 195 pounds. Holcomb beat Anthony Van Gieson of Green River and a major decision 13-2 win against Powell's Daniel Wheeler. Lyman's Braydon Busskohl defeated Holcomb 8-6.

Junior varsity wrestling results will be published this week.

Gillete came in third (146), and Green River finished fourth (128.5).
