Heap wins 112 at Rollie Lane as Braves finish eighth

As the Rollie Lane Invitational wraps up in Boise, Idaho, the Braves are wrapping up an eighth place finish in the 46-team event as Wyoming’s only representative.

Hayden Heap claimed the championshp at 112 pounds for Star ValleyHayden Heap, who won the Tiger Grizz and was the Wyoming State Runner-Up at 103 pounds last year, has found himself a bit out of position wrestling at 119 pounds up until 2009.  Now a full-fledged 112 pounds with oodles of experience, Heap claimed the individual championship for the Braves.

Other impressive finishes included Josh Claye, who is also cutting weight to qualify for 103 pounds, finishing third overall.  Kevin Day was the Braves’ third placer, taking sixth at 125 pounds.

The Rollie Lane is an incredibly tough environment that draws the best talent from Idaho, as well as top talent from Washington, Oregon and Nevada.

The Independent congratulates Heap, Claye, Day and the team on an impressive finish.

    Thanks for the coverage. However, Hayden wasn’t exactly out of position at 119. He lost only one match at the Braves Brawl and took second at the Weber Invite with only one loss as well.

    Good point by jed. Hard to fault a guy for only two losses. I was trying to point out that there are a lot of guys on this year’s squad willing to move weights and it’s not easy to do. I’m impressed by their efforts and wish everybody the best in the next six weeks as they battle that darn scale.
