BONNERS FERRY — On June 11-15 the 2019 U16/cadet USA National dual tournament was held in Spokane, Wash. The USA National team Idaho had two teams competing with seven wrestlers representing Bonners Ferry Wrestling Club. Those representatives were Eli Richards, Andrew Sandelin, Jake Summerfield, Isaiah Shottanana, Kyle Smith, Evan Barajas and Jackson Rickter.
According to Coach Corey Richards, they returned home a little tired and sore from wrestling the 16 or more matches over four days in both freestyle and Greco wrestling.
“They all wrestled tough and learned a great deal while competing against the best in the country,” said Richards. “In order to be the best you gotta wrestle the best. This will bring a tremendous amount of experience to our wrestling room next season. Great job boys.”
