SWC wrestlers perform well in Billings and Columbus

Stillwater Wrestling Club (SWC) members were back at it last weekend, competing in tournaments two days. Jake Ellison led the team by sweeping his competition at both meets.

On Saturday, 14 SWC wrestlers competed in the Battle Under the Rims held at Ben Steele Middle School in Billings. Seven of the wrestlers placed, including Ellison with a first place finish in Midget 70.

SWC held a home meet in Columbus on Sunday. Forty-four SWC wrestlers competed in the Road Kill Classic, and 15 were able to rise above the tough field of competitors to place in the top six of their weight classes. Three boys earned first place hardware: Jake Ellison (Midget 70), Chance Smith (Schoolboy 140), and Brady Ellison (Cadet 106).
