“We did really well. Almost everyone won their matches, and we will now have a Cottage Grove- Elmira-Crow belt in our trophy case,” Elmira High School junior wrestler Summer McKeen said.

The Falcons kept up their winning streak at their next match at Cottage Grove, winning 48-30 on Thursday.

The next home meet also will be the last home meet of the season. It will begin at 6 p.m. Jan. 31 against Pleasant Hill. It will be the final meet for the Falcons before the 3A-SD2 District meet at Scio High School on Feb. 10-11.
