  • 13 County wrestlers head to Semi-State

    LINDEN – Saturday’s Regional at North Montgomery gave the three county schools an opportunity to showcase their toughness as they looked to advance to Saturday’s New Castle Semi-State.

    "I am extremely proud of our effort tonight," Athenian coach David Pierce said. "The kids responded to us trying to motivate them and showed how well they could play."
