Posted: February 6, 2014 - 10:57am

Middle school teams traveled to Soldotna to participate in the legendary “Rubber Chicken Classic” last week. The winner of each weight bracket is awarded a rubber chicken, something most middle-schoolers adore, rather than another medal or ribbon.

Teams from Palmer, Glennallen and Grace Christian School joined the usual peninsula squads, making some of the weight classes full of 16 wrestlers. Homer placed fourth overall with 80.5 points, while Chapman was sixth with 59 points and Voznesenka 10th with 24 points.
