December 5, 2018

With nine freshmen and sophomores in the line and forfeiting three weight classes, giving Sandpoint an 18 to 0 edge right off the bat, the young Badger wrestling team was up for the challenge Tuesday as they upended 4A Sandpoint 42 to 36 to win the annual B-Cup to bring home the trophy.

"All the boys wrestled tough and fought hard," said assistant coach Corey Richards. "It was nice to see a full gym of cheering fans and watch how the wrestlers supported each other, win or lose down to the final match."

Senior Gabe Cee fought that final match, clinching the Badger victory with a 1-0 win.

The Badgers travel to Kellogg Friday to fight the Wildcats and Eureka, and again on Saturday for the George Wild Tournament.
