Raptor grappler earns 100th win

Ridge View wrestling’s team gained a split in a pair of conference duals in it’s last home dual during senior night Thursday and competed in the West Sioux tournament Saturday.

A highlight of Saturday’s tournament came when senior Trent Miller earned the 100th victory of his high school career by pinning Spencer’s Zach O’Clair in 14 seconds in a 220-pound match.

Senior Lance Else was 2-1 at West Sioux, which garnered him his 98th and 99th career wins.

Seniors recognized on Thursday were managers Kaitlyn Currie and Brittany Vincent and wrestlers Else, Cam Steffens and Miller.

“All of these seniors have put in a great deal of time and effort for our program, they will all be greatly missed in the future,” said coach Caleb Christensen. “Each of them has displayed great character, hard work and dedication the past four years. We wish them much success in their future endeavors.”
