Cardinals wrestling heads into the holiday break
The North Idaho Cardinals Wrestling team heads into the Christmas break with a 5-3 overall record in dual meets, and three wrestlers ranked in the top six in the NJCAA polls. Bryson Beard at 133 lbs is ranked 4th in the country, Trey Meyer at 165 lbs is ranked 6th and Boony Merryweather is ranked 6th at 197 lbs. NIC hosted the 45th annual Tri-State wrestling tournament Dec 16-17, with teams from Washington, Oregon, Montana and Idaho competing in the NIC gym. Havre High School (MT) won the tournament by a half point over the two-time defending champion, Post Falls High School. The tournament might go down as one of the craziest, as the Havre 220 pounder pinned his opponent in the final match of the evening to clinch the team title by the final half point margin.
Your Cardinals are now our off until Jan 13th when we host NCAA Division III Pacific College from Oregon. Check your schedule for upcoming wrestling events.
