Fantastic Four: Cotton, Button, Socha, Kraege

These four Ripon High School wrestlers qualified for the sectionals with top-two finishes at the Laconia Division 2 Regional.

After not being mentally sharp in its final competition of the regular season, the Ripon High School Tiger wrestling team did a better job in that department today (Saturday).

The Tigers showed mental fortitude at the Laconia Division 2 Regional to qualify four of their eight wrestlers to the sectional competition, which will take place Saturday, Feb. 6 in Kiel.

Advancing for the Tigers with top-two finishes were seniors LeeRoy Cotton (145-pound weight class), Alex Button (170) and Aaron Socha (220), and freshman Caden Kraege (285).
