“He lost to Weston Bezold 10-9 in his bid to place at Wind River,” Richardson said.

Nick McDaniel, in the 152 pound class, went 2-4.

“Nick always wrestles with excitement,” Richardson observed.

Robbie Marta had a tough week said Richardson wrestling in the 126 pound class.

“He had kind of a rough time, but continues to work hard,” Richardson said about his wrestler.

Richardson said his other 126 pound class wrestler, Adrian King is another wrestler that works hard and has a good attitude.

“All in all, the kids still have work to do,” Richardson said. “But I’m pleased to coach this group of kids.”

The Miner wrestlers will be going to Lingle for the Dogger Invite Jan. 19-20.
