The Boone Central wrestling team began to reap the benefits of hard work and perseverance this past Saturday with its best performance of the season in the 2012 Bill Foster Invitational at Gibbon.

Boone Central was one of just three teams to reach the 100 point mark Saturday. The Cards totaled 100.5 team points to place third behind Southern Valley (128.5) and Ord (122).
Senior Jake Meyer was the top individual story, winning his initial tournament championship at 145 pounds. Meyer was joined in the finals by BC runners-up Bobby Stopak and Kody Sock. Also winning medals for the Cards were Sean Soll, Ethan Wilke and Cody Shanno.
