Dubbed the Fab Five, the Dragon wrestlers will all be gaining new experience, as all five are first-timers to the big show.
Stewart at 160 lbs. and Rojo at 106 earned third-place finishes at the Region 3 tournament at NJC in Sterling Feb. 14-15, while Lopez at 120 lbs., Lousberg at 132 and Struckmeyer at 285 all finished fourth in regional action.
“As we look ahead to the state championships, I am pleased with five qualifiers as I believe we will again prove to people that they may be overlooking Holyoke Wrestling,” said coach Cutter Garrison.
“The week will be an exciting one as we prepare to compete with the best in Colorado in the 2A division,” Garrison added.
