   The Ripon High School wrestling and boys’ basketball teams began practice Monday — the earliest day allowed by the WIAA.

   The boys’ basketball team has a little more than a week to get ready for its first game as it is slated to host Winnebago Lutheran Academy in a non-conference contest Tuesday at 7:15 p.m., while the wrestling team will take part in its first competition Saturday, Dec. 7 at the Lomira Duals.

   The season preview for boys’ basketball and a recap of its game against Winnebago Lutheran Academy will run in the Thursday, Nov. 28 issue, while the wrestling preview is set for the following week’s edition (Dec. 5).
