Montorie Bridges, a state champion and two-time All-American wrestler from Altus has signed his intent to continue wrestling at the University of Wyoming. Montorie is 125-7 as an AHS wrestler. He projects to wrestle at the 125-133 lb. weight class.

Bridges has been a three time placer at the Oklahoma State Championships for the Bulldogs. He was fourth at the Fargo Junior Freestyle and seventh at the USA Wrestling Folkstyle Nationals. He has been a three-time member of the Oklahoma Dual Team and has won the Geary Invitational all three years he has entered it.

“We have been impressed Montorie as we have seen him compete nationally,” said coach Branch of Wyoming. “We have put in much work to get Montorie and we are excited about what he brings to our team.” Montorie appeared relaxed just before he signed his intent. “I am relieved to have this behind me,” said Bridges. “It (recruiting process) was exciting but stressful. I am happy to have this part of it behind me so I can focus on my senior season. We are after a team championship this year.”
