RATHDRUM — It was a solid showing for the Bonners Ferry Badgers, who placed second by just nine points on Saturday at the 3A District I-II wrestling tournament at Lakeland High School.

Evan Barajas (106), Jesse Sandelin (160) and Gabe See (195) claimed district titles for the Badgers, who will send 15 wrestlers to state. Sandelin figures to be a contender for a state title, but will have to navigate a dangerous state bracket.

Badgers wrestling coach Conrad Garner said his team will bring home some medals from the state tournament, and was proud of how they wrestled at districts, where they lost 282-273 to Timberlake.

“It was good to see those kids have success like they did,” said Garner. “It was a great effort by all the kids, a great tournament. We needed two more wins somewhere. We missed a couple, but that’s the way it works.”

The state tournament is Friday and Saturday at Holt Arena in Pocatello.
