We sent 11 wrestlers to the Liberty ‘Raider Rumble’ Wrestling Tournament, and came home with four champions, three runner-ups, and two third place finishers.
Drew Bashlor, Owen Quinn, Colby Piner, and Austin Dilly all went 5-0 to be crowned champions. The amazing thing is that it was the first ever High School Varsity competition for Colby, Austin and Drew. WOW! Alex Zimmerman, Landon Hoover and Bruce Humphreys finished in second place. Cameron Zobrist and Waymon Browning took third. It was a fun and exciting way to start the season for some of the wrestlers. We are all very proud!
Trivia: We have Three returning Regional Champions from last season. Can you name them?

Miluk humor: My wife always says that she never gets any phone calls. So for her birthday, I put one of those “How’s my Driving?” bumper stickers on her car. The phone’s pretty much ringing off the hook now. Ha!
