The Columbus-Absarokee-Park City (CAPC) wrestling team wrapped up the regular season last weekend with a fifth place finish at the Battle on the Bighorn in Hardin with 103 team points.

Six Couguskies placed in the top five of their categories. Brady Ellison and Tanner Cook tied for second place in the 113-pound category, with Ellison contributing 22 team points and Cook adding 18. Cooper Cook finished in second in the 120-pound group with 12 team points, and Nathan Hollar added 20 points on the way to a second place finish in the 145-pound category.

Acel Reynolds, a competitor in the 103-pound section, earned fourth place while scoring four group points. In the 132-pound category, Joe Carlson also placed fourth with a score of four points.

Of the 12 CAPC competitors who took part in Saturday’s meet, here are the other Couguskies who contributed to the team score:

• 138-lbs.: Brent Kelly, 6 points

• 152-lbs.: Colby Coleman, 6 points

• 182-lbs.: Keegan Goddard, 8 points

• 285-lbs.: Kade Pendill, 3 points


Entering the Battle on the Bighorn, the CAPC team was ranked fourth in the state, tied with Poplar.

Three Couguskies remained on the rankings list from the week before, and there were also a couple new-comers.

Weston Timberman was ranked second for the 103-pound category, and Dylan Raihl sat in second in the 152-pound class. Ranked sixth in the heavyweight category was still Carter Beer.

As of last week, CAPC had a pair of newcomers. Tanner and Cooper Cook transferred over to the team officially; for the first part of the season they were competing at Shepherd.

Tanner was ranked first in the state for the 113-pound category, and Cooper was second in the 113-pound class.


The postseason begins for the Couguskies this week. Saturday, the team will compete in the divisional tournament in Townsend.

Those who qualify will then wrestle at the state meet in Billings the following weekend.
