"Our goal is to win it this year," stated SHS wrestling coach Guy Melby. The Eagles placed second behind Idaho state champions Post Falls last year. Post Falls will be returning this year and most likely will be the team to beat. The Eagles have another top-notch team this year with four returning state champions.
