Wrestling with success

Wood River grapplers will take 11 to state

Just three years ago, the Wood River wrestling team qualified four grapplers for the state tournament.

At the conclusion of the SCIC district wrestling meet on Wednesday, Wood River had crowned four district champions and earned state berths for 11 grapplers.

"The kids wrestled great. We could not have wrestled any better," third-year coach Danny Turner said.

In action at Declo, defending champion Kimberly claimed the team title with 193.5 total points. Wood River was second with 184. Gooding placed third (137.5), followed by Buhl (107), Declo (100.5) and Filer (64).

The Wolverines will take the most athletes to state with 11. Kimberly qualified 10 and Gooding nine. Both Declo and Buhl put five on the state list and Filer has four.

Wolverine district champions were Murdock Miller at 103 pounds, Duane Miller at 145, Brandon Silvia at 160 and Dustin Selner at 275.

Jordan Vert was runner-up at 119 and Greg Lyons was second at 189. Third-place finishers were Sid Watson at 112, Josh Orchard at 130, Robert Wiesen at 152, Russ Adams at 160, and Brad Dussell at 215. The Wolverines qualified 11 out of the 14 district competitors.

The State 3A Wrestling Championships will be held at Holt Arena in Pocatello, Feb. 26-28.
