If there were any doubts the Pirates had one of the best boys wrestling teams in Idaho’s 1A-2A division, they were certainly put to rest during the first two days of the 2A State Championships.

West Side qualified 11 athletes for the tournament and an impressive nine of them have advanced to the placement rounds. As a result, the Pirates are in third place in the team competition heading into the third and final day of the tourney, which is being contested at the Idaho Center in Nampa.
