Erie Wrestling’s Path to State


The Erie Tigers wrestling team is nearing the end of their season. Varsity wrestling has put on quite a show throughout the year.

The Tigers are led by Coach Joe Ferrera who is getting prepared for the state tournament. “Kinda the same approach as every other year. I’d like to qualify fourteen guys.”

Erie has had solid results at every match this season. At the Front Range League Tournament, Erie had placers, Carson Hageman, Hunter Waneka, Noah Bridgewater, and Wyatt Walston.

With regionals and state approaching, practices are getting more intense. The Tigers are highly motivated to qualify for both.

The season is coming to an end and some of the athletes have begun reflecting. Carson Hageman told us about his favorite memory. “My favorite part of the season was the Senior Night Duals at home against Poudre.” Erie unfortunately fell to Poudre 46-25

Multiple athletes have placed first at multiple invitationals. One of the best showings was at the Jaguar Invitational where Erie had 10 placers. Among them the Tigers had 4 athletes place first in their weight class. Austin Muir, Caleb McCollum, Carson Hageman, and Hunter Waneka.

One of the best performances of the season was at the Skyline Triangular Dual where Erie won both duals decisively. A 46-30 victory over Skyline and a 37-31 win against Mountain View.

Senior Austin Muir is excited for the state tournament. “I think it will go really well. We are wrestling very well right now and I think we can keep it up.”

Erie has done an excellent job of making wrestling more than an individual sport. This attitude will drive them in the state tournament and hopefully they can bring home a state championship.
