Busy Week for Sidney Grapplers


January 27, 2021

Sidney’s Red Raider Wrestling team hosted a triangular meet on Thursday against Gering and Scottsbluff, and manged a split, falling to Gering 54-to-22 but then recovering to defeat Scottsbluff 44-to-33. Te Red Raiders have had a tough time with the Gering team this season, due to match ups that favor the Gering wrestlers, according to Sidney Head Coach Beau McConnell.

The Red Raiders then traveled to Lexington on Saturday for the John Higgins Invitational, which has stayed with its individual tournament format, with individual places and team scores, despite the COVID-19 pandemic which has limited most competitions to dual formats. Sidney placed 7th out of 10 teams and had outstanding results from many of their wrestlers. Sidney brought home six individual medals, led by Chance Houser’s first place medal at 106 lbs to move his season record to 31-and-0 for the Red Raiders.
