The Bear River wrestling team (13-8, 3-2) extended its dual meet win streak to 10 matches Thursday, beating West Campus 53-21 at the Bear River gym. With the JV winning 48-3 (12-10, 4-1), their combined home record now stands at 9-0.

” We showed a lot of depth tonight,” said coach Rob Nebeker. “Our light weights are really tough.”

Bear River scored five pins including their first three matches and a technical fall enroute to the win. John Kammerer came away with a 6-4 overtime win in what was likely the night’s most exciting match.
