NAMPA — The Bonners Ferry Badgers wrestling squad had a big turn around the last two weeks of the season and sent nine boys to the State Championships.

Jesse Sandelin placed 2nd in the 160 weight class, Matt Varelman placed 2nd in the 195 weight class, and Tyler Beazer placed 6th in the 113. All state qualifiers represented Bonners Ferry well and fought hard to claim their standings at the championships.
