GOLDEN — After coming oh-so-close to qualifying for recent 5A state wrestling tournaments, Poe Di and Aron Pino Valenzuela were poised to take advantage of Littleton’s drop to 4A this season.
They did so to near-perfection by advancing to the finals of the 4A Region 4 tournament Feb. 13-14 at Golden High School. They’ll head to their first state meet as the region’s No. 2 seeds after bowing to top seeds in the 132- and 285-pound divisions.
