Some teams have kept their seasons alive, while others are done for the year with the hopeful thought of next year in their minds.
Boy’s wrestling is about to kick off its postseason for Sidney, as the high school hosts the Eastern Class A Divisional this weekend, and basketball tournaments are in full swing.
Here is one of the last Richland County Roundups for winter sports this school year.
SidneyCongratulations are in order for the two girl’s wrestlers on the Sidney High School wrestling team.
In the 126 weight class, Amaiya Kern won the state title, and at the 120 weight class, Keela Kary placed fifth.
