The Alliance Wrestling Team hosted Hot Springs South Dakota in the first home Dual of the season and also dedicated their new Wrestling Mat Tuesday night. The Bulldogs opened the evening dedicating the new mat in Memory and Honor of Raily Koozer. Raily was a 2 time State Medalist for Alliance High School in 1961 and 1962 and was instrumental in building the Alliance Wrestling program. Raily’s son Todd was also an Alliance graduate and wrestled for the Bulldogs. On hand for the dedication was Raily’s widow Denise, and AHS Coaches Scott Ruff, Duane Dobson, Bryan Wilson, Morgan Wills, Rob Hood and Nic Myers. The Bulldogs then defeated Hot Springs 69-4 in Dual action.
