Ridge View Coach Caleb Christensen commented, “Our kids battled hard tonight. We saw a lot of good things in our second meet of the season. We still have quite a bit to work on in the wrestling room, but we knew we weren’t going to peak at the beginning of the season. One big takeaway from tonight is the effort we put out. We made some good improvements from meet one on Tuesday to meet two, but our effort looked much better. I felt like maybe we had a bit more confidence tonight.
Gary Baughn wrestled very well. He was up in his first match 5-2 going into the third period, made a mistake and got caught. But he came back in the second match against OABCIG and wrestled tough to get the win.
Lance Else looks like he is turning the corner for us. He came out in his only match of the night and looked very tough on his feet, something he is going to need to do through the season to get to the next level.”
The Raptors wrestled in the Manson Northwest Webster Tournament on Saturday.
