Homer wrestling honors seniors


The Homer wrestling team hosted Kenai Central and Soldotna for unscored dual meets Friday.

The unscored dual meets are serving to get wrestlers the best matchups possible to prepare them for the big tournaments at the end of the season.

Homer also honored its seniors during the event. Sadie Blake, Austin Cline, Ann Graham, Bruce Graham and Josh Bradshaw were honored for the Mariners.
