THUNDER RIDGE GIRLS WRESTLING

 

Head Coach

Jody Webb, 5th Season

 

Key Athletes

Shauna Anderson, 10, 185 lbs.

Ashley Barnes, 12, 235 lbs.

Gracie Price, 9, 100 lbs.

Mia Ragan, 12, 107 lbs.

Olivia Silvester, 9, 235 lbs.

 

There is no faster sport in the country in terms of annual growth than girls wrestling.  Consider this: just five years ago, there was no state tournament for girls.  They instead had to wrestle against boys to compete at the highest level.  Then, four years ago, the IHSAA held an “unofficial” girls state tournament, which featured an all-class format.  And now, for the past three years, Idaho has held an official state tournament.  Although it’s still under the “all-class” umbrella, a split by classification could be coming soon.

In the history of the official girls wrestling state tournament, Eagle had been the only team to win the title, taking home first place in both 2022 and 2023.  Their run finally ended this past February in Pocatello, as Thunder Ridge ran away with the title with 130.5 points.

The Titans only brought five girls with them to state, but all five produced.  Shauna Anderson won the championship at 185 lbs.  A trio of Titans (Gracie Price at 100 lbs., Mia Ragan at 107 lbs., and Ashley Barnes at 235 lbs.) all finished 2nd.  And freshman Olivia Silvester took 4th at 235 lbs., joining Barnes on the podium in that weight class.


 

KIMBERLY SOFTBALL

 

Head Coach

Ryan Trappen, 1st Season

 

Key Athletes

Emma Chavez, 9, Catcher

Addi Clark, 10, Pitcher/1st Baseman

Jaci Cowger, 11, Shortstop

Emily Hanchey, 12, Second Baseman

Mallory Kelsey, 11, Pitcher/1st Baseman

 

State tournament weekend in softball was one of the wildest in recent memory, as four of the five championships were decided in the true “if-necessary” second championship game.  Only one team went through their state tournament completely unscathed and unbeaten: Kimberly.

The Bulldogs blitzed Timberlake 16-0 in their opener, held off a feisty Marsh Valley team 5-4, blanked Homedale in the undefeated semifinal 11-0, and defeated the Trojans again in the championship game, 9-6.

Sophomore Addi Clark hit .510 on the season, and blasted eight home runs.  She added 13 doubles, six triples, 38 RBIs, and 42 runs scored.  Clark also teamed up in the pitcher’s circle with Mallory Kelsey to give the Bulldogs a solid one-two punch, a luxury that many softball teams don’t have.

The victory over Homedale gave Kimberly its second consecutive softball title, and fifth overall.
