LEAD – The Hot Springs Bison wrestling team split a pair of Black Hills Conference duals last week in the Northern Hills, narrowly defeating Lead-Deadwood 40-39 but losing to Spearfish by a score of 21-54.

“It was nice to get back in the win column against Lead,” said Hot Springs head coach Ray Ringstmeyer. “They got us the last two or three in a row, so to pull that win off was nice.

“We also won some big individual matches against Spearfish with Keaton, Kody, and Garrett all pulling of big wins against some pretty tough opponents,” Coach Ringstmeyer added.
