    With three teams in the top ten, region 6 is definitely tough. Any kid who makes it out there and goes to state is one mean hombre!

    Scott senior Ryan Sowder

    One kid that I am especially proud of is Scott senior Ryan Sowder who injured his knee rather badly 2 weeks before regionals and still became 6th region's champion 160.By the time state came around he had'nt practiced for three weeks. He won his first two matches by pins, however the pain became too much and he lost his next two. He had placed sixth last year. The young man never complained or made excuses for his losses and he actually apologized to us who came to watch him wrestle.He is definitely a quality young man with a character that is so very rare these days. There is definitely some good news as he has accepted the offer to go to Georgetown and play football! BTW, he is not my son. However he has been a great friend and mentor to my son who is a freshman and to all his team mates. Congrats to this young man and good luck with every thing you do.

    My boy Rob Clarkston won 4 and finished 2nd in 8th grade if I recall correctly.

    Sowder boys are tough.
