The other suspects needed to follow suit.
"They're the fifth-ranked team in the state," Bayfield wrestling coach Herb Stinson said after a 38-27 loss Thursday at Pagosa Springs. "They've got three number ones, and the rest of their kids fall in line.
"We should've won it, but they outhustled us," Stinson said.
Bayfield lost forfeits at 103 and 112 pounds.
"We had sickness, and some kids that wrestled probably shouldn't have wrestled," Stinson said.
Stephen Smith, one of three Pagosa Springs wrestlers ranked No. 1 in the state by Rockypreps, defeated Garret Tyrrell 13-5 in the 119-pound weight class.
Mike Smith, another No. 1, defeated Jeff Huffmyer 17-15 at 171, and Joe DuCharme, another No. 1, defeated Markus Eckstein, ranked No. 3 in Class 3A, 12-6 at 189.
Tanner McGhehey lost 12-8 at 130, Brenden Harrison lost 8-5 at 160, Nicolai Syse lost 2-0 at heavyweight, and Coty Towning "lost a heartbreaker" at 215.
Clint Manzanares of Pagosa pinned Towning in overtime.
"That was the swinger in the whole thing," Stinson said.
The dual was the final regular-season meet of the season for Bayfield. Idle this week, Bayfield will wrestle next weekend at the Intermountain League Tournament, a tournament that will feature four of the best 3A wrestling teams in the state in Bayfield, Centauri, Monte Vista and Pagosa Springs.
