Lions honor seniors and alumni with a big win over Wilmington and Hillsboro!

What an event, senior night and alumni night, a full house and the Lions honor the crowd with a dominating performance. Our nine seniors went to center circle for the last time at NRHS. The nine seniors will leave a legacy of arguably the best wrestling team this high school has ever assembled. With a little forward thinking these young men will finish with three league titles, three sectional titles, a district title, two state dual appearances, eight state qualifying appearances and numerous tournament titles. The best part of the story is that they are better young leaders than they are wrestlers. Brody Hooks, Robbie Lemar, Austin Skaggs, Tyler Loyd, Cody Gabelman, Ryan Zawacki, Chris Klinker, Cory English and Ryle Beckerich you have left a mark on this program that will never be forgotten, 1, 2 PRIDE, WORK, WIN!!!

We had about thirty alumni wrestlers show up for the event. It was great seeing the group that paved the way for this storied program.

The seniors went out with a bang, beating Wilmington 55-18 and Hilsboro 39-29! Ryle pinning both his opponents, Austin tooled his opponent for six minutes, Tyler launched a Wilmington wrestler to the rafters, Cody wasted no time pinning his opponent, Robbie hung twenty-four points on his opponent, Chris pinned his opponent quickly.

Next up for the Lions is the Washington Courthouse Duals Saturday, WE ARE NR!!

Tough Loss for Lady Lions

The Lady Lions Girls Basketball Team lost a heart-breaker last night vs Western Brown 50-46. After leading for most of the game, turnovers and free throw discrepancy led to the lead disappearing in the 4th quarter. The loss clinches at least a share of the title for Western Brown meaning the New Richmond needs a win on Senior Night and a Western Brown loss next Thursday in order to get a share of the title. Josie Buckingham scored a game-high 21 points and collected 14 rebounds in the loss while seniors Sarah Shoemaker and Courtney Grogan added 11 and 10 respectively. Next @ Taylor Monday, Feb. 6.

Varsity Girls Basketball Beats Bethel

The Varsity Girls Basketball team got its 4th straight win last night on the road vs Bethel-Tate, final score 38-23. The Lady Lions pulled away slowly in a slow-paced game that saw the Tigers score only 6 second-half points. Josie Buckingham once again led all scorers with 21 points and also added 14 rebounds and 6 blocked shots. Sarah Shoemaker added 8 points, 10 rebounds, and 3 assists. It was yet another division road win for the Lady Lions who improve their SBAAC American record to 7-1 with 2 division games remaining. Next at home vs Georgetown Monday, 1/30/12.

Lions and Tigers and Aviators?? Oh My!!

It was not a lame version of the Wizard of Oz, it was a heart pounding, teeth grinding, grueling wrestling meet @ Milford High School! The Varsity Wrestling Lions gutted out a second place finish behind the Loveland Tigers and just ahead of the Sycamore Aviators. The Lions finished the first day in fourth place out of sixteen teams. Saturday morning went very well for the Lions though, five wrestlers would be in the finals for first. Overall the Lions placed ten in the top six.

Leading the way for the Lions was Brody Hooks, Austin Skaggs, Cody Gabelman and JR Forsee, all finishing first! Cody Gabelman received votes but didn't quite win the Most Valuable Wrestler award, Cody pinned all his opponents and only one of them made it to the second period, congrats Cody!! Freshmen Kyle Weeks was the surprise of the tournament. Kyle was unseeded and upset three wrestlers on his way to a second place finish, that victory grin may never come off his face!!! Ryan Zawacki, James White and Kevin Reid finished fourth Ryle Beckerich and Nathan Dixon finished sixth.

Next up for the Lions is Senior night/Alumni night Thursday, 02/02 @ New Richmond High School. Come celebrate with our seniors and alumni. Get the word out that we want all NRHS wrestling alumni and coaches! WE ARE NR!!!
