Kuna High’s gym erupted last Wednesday night in cheers and boos during the much anticipated wrestling match against Centennial. Nationally ranked Kuna (#41) against nationally ranked Centennial (#45) went toe-to-toe in a wrestling battle royale. The Kuna High gym was packed with supporters. The evening was dedicated to Boone Bartlome and Elijah Minnick who attended with his family. They had silent auction items and senior night highlighting the seniors of the wrestling team. The whole night was suspenseful with very few pins made by wrestlers. Most of the decisions were made by points. Kuna was able to come out on top with a nail biting result of 33.0 to 29.0.
The next night Kuna hosted the match against Mountain Home. That night Kuna fans could take a nice break and enjoy watching our boys keep up their record and beat Mountain Home 63.0 to 18.0.
This Thursday and Friday will be district championships at Bishop Kelly and Boone Bartlome will be the Master of Ceremonies.
