Thompson Valley High School’s wrestling team travels to Broomfield tonight, a matchup between the No. 3 and No. 4 teams in Class 4A. TVHS’ Eagles come in No. 4.
The Northern Conference dual will feature three matches between wrestlers ranked in the top six of the On the Mat rankings, starting at 106 pounds. Broomfield’s top-ranked Drew Romero will face No. 6 Collin Williams.;At 152, it’s Broomfield’s top-ranked Nick Babcock against No. 5 Joe Chavez; and at 220, TVHS’ No. 2 Lee Chieppo will take on No. 5 Connor Eakes. There are three other matches with competitors both ranked in the top 12.
Thompson Valley has not been able to topple Broomfield in recent years, but with a strong lineup top to bottom, this just may be the year. It will be a night where bonus points will be important, because they should be hard to earn. Broomfield will also honor its past state champions at the event.
