Miners grapple at State
Small HEM team wrestles in Casper
March 3, 2021
It can be difficult to get many points when a wrestling team is small. While the Hanna, Elk Mountain, Medicine Bow (HEM) High School wrestling team was able to send four grapplers to State, they did not place.
HEM went up against 19 other schools in the 2 A division.
Howard Bame was able to bring 3 points to the school's score. The other grapplers did not fare so well, although it was recognized by a Hanna resident who was watching the team did their best.
"They tried really hard," Sunshine Solaas said. "There were a lot of good wrestlers and, unfortunately, someone has to lose."
