Rattler wrestlers get trio of medals in Ruidoso

Rattler Wrestlers hit the mats at the Sierra Blanca Tournament in Ruidoso last weekend with three Rattlers medaling.

“I thought our kids wrestled extremely well,” said coach Eddie Encinias. “We had a great performance from Brian Lopez, Raymond Jimenez and Fernando Ureste.”

Lopez came home with the championship, Jimenez with second and Ureste brought home third place.

“Several of the other kids did well, however, these three were the ones who medaled,” Encinias said.

Team wise the Rattlers finished fourth place overall.

“I am very proud of how the kids handled themselves. After all, they are wrestling against 4A and 5 A schools.” Encinias said.
