Nikiski wrestlers chase state crown
Nikiski’s path to the small-schools First National Bowl crown got clearer due to reclassification before the 2011-12 prep season.
That same reclassification has made the Bulldogs’ path to a Class 1-2-3A state wrestling title more cluttered.
The football reclassification moved schools like Kenai Central, Soldotna, Homer and Skyview from small-schools to medium-schools football. The Bulldogs took advantage by taking their first small-schools football title since 2001.
