RATHDRUM — The Bonners Ferry wrestling squad shined at the 3A district tournament that took place at Lakeland High School last Saturday, Feb. 18. The team, which has struggled to score well in the past few weeks, finished in third place overall.

“The kids really stepped up last week,” head coach Conrad Garner says. “We opened up the tournament with a lot of pins and led for most of the day. We slipped a little there at the end but I’m happy with where we ended up.”

Nine Badger wrestlers placed in the top three of their weight classes, which means they will travel to compete in the state tournament this week. Those wrestlers are: Carver Copley, Ben Tadlock, Tyler Beazer, Denton Eby, Mason Eby, Jesse Sandlin, Pacen Pluid, Matt Varelman and Ronney Craig. The tournament will take place in Nampa this Friday and Saturday.

Varelman, one of only two seniors on this year’s squad, punched his ticket to state by placing first in the 195 lb. class.

The results from the district tournament are as follows:
