This weeks Craw-Kan "Your Community Technology Partner" Team of the Week from the Southeast Kansas area is the Frontenac Raider Wrestling team, led by head coach Keith Aikin.
The Raiders are sending eight to state in Salina this Friday and Saturday for the 4A state wrestling championships. Riley McDaniel won the 138 pound class and remains undefeated at 34-0 on the year. Mason Jameson improved to 32-5 on the year and won the 145 pound class bracket. Brendan Ishimura captured the 152 pound title and is 26-2 on the year.
