Seely joins elite group as Warrior Classic champion

Jacob Seely accomplished a rare feat Saturday night, but for him, it’s simply one step toward the feat he wants to accomplish before he’s done wrestling at the high school level.
The Fruita Monument High School senior joined rare company as a three-time Warrior Classic champion. He was chosen the upper weights outstanding wrestler.
“It’s pretty cool,” Seely said after defeating Alonzo Hernandez of Pagosa Springs 18-3 on a technical fall 10 seconds into the second period in the 195-pound championship final at Central High School.
“It’s a title I can be proud of. Nobody can take that away from me. It does mean a lot.”
Seely was one of nine wrestlers to win at least a second Warrior Classic title this year.
