DENVER — Poudre senior Jacob Greenwood is one step away from joining wrestling elite in Colorado.
Greenwood, already a three-time state wrestling champion, advanced to the Class 5A 145-pound final on Friday night. It means he will wrestle for a shot to win a fourth state title on Saturday. Only 20 wrestlers in CHSAA history have ever done that before.
To advance to the final, Greenwood beat Rocky Mountain's Tate Martinez with a 17-6 major decision in the semifinals.
He will face Grand Junction senior Dylan Martinez, the No. 2 seed in the bracket, for the championship on Saturday night.
Greenwood won the 126-pound championship as a freshman, 132 pounds as a sophomore, and 138 pounds last season as a junior.
There has never been a four-time champion wrestling from the Fort Collins area.
Each of the past four state tournaments has featured a four-time champion.
