The weather has played havoc with the junior high Wrestling schedule for more results next week.

There has been a lot of activity at the Wheeler Café building in Seaton so hopefully we will have a restaurant open soon. Kelly and Keith Wheeler are going to be operating it.

IHSA Wrestling Regionals were last weekend at Sherrard High School. The competition gets tougher as the wrestlers meet up with the best from around the state at Sectionals this weekend in Byron. Nine wrestlers from Mercer County High School qualified for IHSA Sectionals. Ethan Ball, at 160 placed 1st, Zach Nelson, at 135 placed 1st, Logan Snyder placed 2nd, Jesse Snyder placed 2nd, Bryce Skiles placed 2nd, Austin Skiles placed 2nd, Derrick Morford placed 2nd, Landon MacIntosh placed 3rd and AJ Schroeder placed 3rd. Good job to all of the MC Wrestling Team and good luck to the nine young men representing our school for the chance to go to state competition.
