HOLSTEIN — SWAT girls wrestling finished two points short of a team championship in the Ridge View Girls Wrestling Tournament on Saturday, Nov. 19.
Lewis Central wrapped up the team title with 146 points.
“Taking second place in such a big tournament is a huge achievement for us. We came together as a team, supported each other from the first whistle to the final hand being raised,” said SWAT head coach Tiffany South.
