Looking Back

BHV wrestlers traveled to Pine River with the goal of winning the Park Region Individual Championship. Because of illness the Raiders were forced to forfeit at 160 and replace Jake Richter at 103 pounds. Jake Oyster replaced Richter and wrestled Chad Rhoads of Parkers Prairie in the first round and lost an exciting 9-6 decision. The Raiders were able to capture their fifth championship because they recorded five more pins than Ottertail Central.
