Bronco wrestling pick up two more team wins

RIGBY- They came, they saw, they conquered. The Blackfoot Broncos traveled north Wednesday night as they competed in a double duel with the Hillcrest Knights, and the Madison Bobcats. Not only did they compete, but they dominated as they swept the duel winning 69-15 against conference foe Hillcrest, and skinning the Bobcats 69-6.

A key match happened when junior Chase James stepped up to fill the spot of varsity grappler Tate Hansen. “I thought that was awesome, we asked our JV wrestler to step up,and once he believed he could do it, he came in with a beautiful double leg and took him right down to his back and got the pin,” said Blackfoot head coach Thain Cashmore of James’ performance. “It was good to get back to Idaho, and get our feet wet. I feel we did a lot of things great and some things we will work on.”
With the sweep of the evening, Blackfoot now stands at a most impressive 9-1 in their first ten duels of the season and they will look to build on that record when they take to the mats at the High Country Conference duels at Bonneville High School on Friday and Saturday.
