#snapshots: Wrestling season winding down
#snapshots, brought to you by Rendezvous Dental, is a series highlighting amazing athletic and competitive achievements from across County 10.
If you had a youngster in wrestling, or knew a wrestler, you know just how busy these kids were! Their weekends were full! Members of the Riverton USA Wrestling club have been traveling to tournaments every weekend all over the state for the past couple months.
According to Dustin McLaughlin, one of the Club volunteers, The Riverton Wrestling Club is a non-profit organization. “Our goals are teach 5-17 year old kids sportsmanship, advanced wrestling skill and most important is to have a fun opportunity.” If you got the chance to watch one of these energetic tournaments you saw just that, young wrestlers having a great time.
The wrestlers did very well at their home competition a few weeks ago. Wiley Philleo of Riverton finished 1st in Folkstyle and Freestyle. Weston McLaughlin of Riverton finished 2nd in Folkstyle and Freestyle against opponent Haden Blair of Thermopolis.
Ezra Hernandez of Riverton finished 2nd in Folkstyle and 4th in Freestyle. Drew Lynch also finished 2nd.
These wrestlers represented Fremont County by competing in many more tournaments around the state and they are looking forward to next year!
