MISSOULA — The defending Class AA state wrestling champions made another big statement on Saturday, as Kalispell Flathead won the team title at the annual Jug Beck Rocky Mountain Invitational at Missoula Sentinel High School.

Flathead won the prestigious western Montana wrestling tournament by racking up 314.5 points. The tournament, one of the largest regular season prep wrestling tournaments in the state, began on Friday and concluded on Saturday with the championship rounds.

University High from University, Washington took second with 221 points while Coeur d'Alene High School from Idaho took third with 217 points. Butte was fourth with 206 points and Belgrade rounded out the top five with 151.5 points.

Ten of the 13 weight class championships were won by wrestlers from Montana, including four who are reigning state champions. Kalispell Glacier junior Teegan Vasquez, a two-time state wrestling champion, won the 132-pound class with a pin over Butte's Kip Pumnea. Vasquez won the 120-pound title last year as a sophomore.

Helena Capital's Caron DesRosier, the reigning 138-pound champion, also won the 138 bracket on Saturday, as he defeated Justin Windauer of Columbia Falls by 9-3 decision.

Avery Allen of Bozeman, a two-time state champion who won the 145-pound AA title last year, won the 152- pound bracket at the Jug Beck with a pin of Coeur d'Alene's Demarco Piazza.

Rounding out the reigning titlists was Havre's Orion Thivierge, a two-time Class A state champion who won the 170-pound title last year for the Blue Ponies. He won the 170 bracket on Saturday with an 11-3 major decision over Flathead's Anders Thompson.

Ronan's Ridge Cote won the 113-pound bracket while Belgrade's Mason Gutenberger, a state runner-up last year, won the 120-pound bracket. Fellow Panther Carter Schmidt won the 126-pound bracket while Flathead's Gabe Lake won the 160-pound bracket.

Flathead added another first-place finish with Noah Poe-Hatten in the 182-pound bracket. Poe-Hatten also was a runner-up at state a year ago. Capital's Talon Marsh rounded out the Montana winners with a victory in the heavyweight bracket.
