Boys Junior Varsity Wrestling, Boys Varsity Wrestling · Wrestling- Great Sectional Performance Sends 9 to Regional

The RHS wrestling team had a great day at the Shenandoah Sectional Saturday while sending 9 wrestlers onto the Regional.  For the first time in many years, the Red Devils fielded a full team.  This depth helped the Devils finish second as a team- just short of their goal of a team Sectional championship.

Coach Dan Capps said, “I’m so incredibly proud of this group! Even though we fell a little short of our season goal of winning Sectionals (we ended up 2nd, which is great) we were able to get 9 wrestlers through to Regionals, and have another 2 as alternates. The work that they put in throughout the season is paying off. We’re a really young team, we will be back next year, and looking to win it all.”
