Lewis, Raffety Win SWC Title

The Minden Whippets wrestling team traveled to Cozad on Friday for the 2011 Southwest Conference wrestling meet.
The Whippets placed seventh in the team standings with 58 points but did have two champions.
Jack Raffety and Bryce Lewis were crowned 2011 champions at 152 and 160 pounds respectively.
“Bryce Lewis and Jack Raffety both won SWC titles,” stated Coaches Sam Dunn and Jim Andersen. “Both champions wrestled extremely physical. It would appear they are both ready for the district wrestling tournament and both will have a difficult weight class with several state rated wrestlers in their class.  Dyllan Kuehn wrestled very well to place third in the conference. We needed to be a bit more intense with some of the other wrestlers who competed on Friday in SWC.”
Valentine won the SWC team title with a score of 177.5 followed by Cozad with 175 and Gothenburg with 142.5.
