Weeping Water Wrestling Invitational
      Weeping Water High School hosted their annual High School Wrestling Invitational last Saturday, January 12. Even though the Weeping Water boys were wrestling many tough competitors, they did a wonderful job of representing our school. The team ended up placing 4th in the very large meet. Individual places were as follows: Billy Schreiner-3rd, Jace Keckler-4th, Garrett McSorley-3rd, Johnny Duncan-4th, Shelton Mozena-4th, TJ Bickford-1st, Phillip Rhodes-2nd, and Alex Wessels-3rd. Overall they did a great job in the meet and worked their hardest. Congratulations wrestlers!!
