Tahoma Bears - Week 3 Recap

The Tahoma Bears had a great third week of competition. The week began with our first home dual of the season vs. Kennedy Catholic. This is Kennedy‚Äôs first year in our league and their first year in the 4A Classification. The Bears welcomed them with a 84-0 win in front of a great home crowd. The Bears won each of the matches wrestled by fall. This weekend, the Bears competed at two different tournaments. The Varsity team was in Northern Idaho, at the TriState Tournament.
