Last Friday night Jan 31st, 2014 the Kuna High school hosted the 6th annual Wrestling Dinner/Auction. Many businesses around the Treasure Valley donated services or items for the live and silent auction, there were tires from Les Schwab, landscape package from Cloverdale nursery and a beautiful China Hutch donated by the Spangler family just to name a few. Parents, families and friends were in attendance to support and bid on the great items. Wrestlers served the attendees and were auctioned off themselves for four hours of work to the highest bidder.
Thursday Night Jan 30, 2014 The Kuna Kavemen hosted the Emmett Huskies in the High School Gym for a very special dual. The evening and dual were dedicated in remembrance of Daniel Cook, who a short time ago lost his life in the school bus tragedy, Cook was apart of the Kavemen Wrestling team.
Also that evening Wade Palmer, his coaches and the Junior High Team were congratulated on having won the district championship title for an outstanding 33 years! The Cook Family was in attendance and when the Varsity Team was announced the Varsity boys came over to the Cook family and gave them roses and hugs from each of the players. Also they wore special T-Shirts saying “Daniel Cook, Kuna Wrestler Forever in our Hearts”
