  Lewiston High Schools wrestling team continued the season, making its way to the Tri-State tournament at North Idaho College Dec. 15 and 16. Although no Bengals placed at the tournament, they ranked 36th out of 69 teams.
  “To keep the kids busy over break,” said Athletic Director Corey Williams, Lewiston held a Jamboree Dec. 22 that attracted Moscow, Orofino, Hellgate and a combination of Potlatch and Prairie. No stats were kept at the jamboree.
  Dec. 28, the Bengals wrestled Moscow, beating the Bears 45-21. The wins that contributed to the win were 98 Gage Fiamengo’s forfeit, 113 Owen Hemphill’s forfeit, 138 Tanner Hutchens’ pin, 145 Hunter Fligger’s pin, 152 Billy Hobbs’ forfeit, 160 Max Hill’s pin, 195 Kyle Cook’s’ minor decision (10-9), and Jared Dykes’s pin.
  Jan. 5 and 6, the Bengals attended the Rollie Lane Tournament in Nampa. No wrestlers placed at this tournament.
  Starting Jan. 11, the Bengals made their way to Montana for the Rocky Mountain Classic tournament. At 160 pounds, Hill placed sixth, being the only Bengal to place.
“It felt good,” said Hill. “It’s nice to see the hard work put in finally paid off.”
  Jan. 16, the Bengals took on the Clarkston Bantams, beating them 54-33. The following wins helped the Bengals beat the Bantams: Fiamengo’s forfeit at 98 pounds, Trenton Hall’s pin at 126, Hutchens pin at 138, Hobbs’ pin at 152, Hill’s pin at 160, Damon Shaw’s pin at 170, Cook’s pin at 182, Lance Lorang’s pin at 195, Karlin Schlafman’s pin at 220, and Dyke’s pin at 285.
“It was a true moment of glory,” Lorang recalled, “I was one of the last ones I was one of the last ones to go out there… and I wanted to wanted to do like everybody else… pin my guy.”
  At the 32nd annual Clearwater Classic Jan. 19 and 20, senior Hutchens led the Bengals throughout the tournament. Hutchens placed first at 138 pounds, Fiamengo placed second at 98 pounds, and Fliger placed third at 145 pounds.
