Mesa Ridge High School did well at the regional wrestling tournaments held March 6, with eight of their athletes qualifying for state. From left, the qualifying boys' wrestling athletes are (standing) Mickail Skeldum, Matthew Moore, Frankie Gallegos and Tucker Trevino. The qualifying girls' wrestling athletes are (kneeling) Alexsys Jacquez, Bella Cross, RaeAnna Bristow and Alison Evans. "All of our kids wrestled really well," Coach Rob Braaten said. "All of our qualifiers are freshmen or sophomores so that is exciting. Even our wrestlers who didn't qualify wrestled well. It was easily our best performance of the season. Considering we lost a few weeks of our season, I was proud of how the team responded. It says a lot about the character of the athletes that we have in our program."
