Two Spartans capture first at MoValley Tourney

By Russ Green/Sports Editor

Rance Waigand and Austin Bowman brought home gold for the Richmond wrestlers at the Battle Tournament held at Missouri Valley College in Marshall Friday and Saturday.

The event was formally known as the Battle of Lexington, and held at Wentworth, but was moved to Marshall following the closure of the military academy last spring.

Sixty schools participated in the two-day event with the six Spartan wrestlers combining for a 10th-place total of 238.5 points. Gallatin grabbed the team title with 457.5 points, followed by Lathrop with 405 and Lawson with 388.
