The Fort Irwin Youth Wrestling Club recently traveled to Barstow to compete in the 2013 Riffian High Desert Tournament.
The event, March 16, took place at Barstow High School, which has hosted the event for years. This year was the first in which Fort Irwin has fielded a team and competed. More than 100 local area wrestlers ages 5-17 participated in matches throughout the day.
Parents and friends watched, cheered and photographed from the stands as coaches and teammates yelled support to their wrestlers during the matches.
The Fort Irwin club has 30 members and they had been practicing since November for the tournament. Congratulations team!
