Youth wrestling…

Kai Turner, pictured with his mother, Ann, was an honorary referee. The Turner family and friends all share their time and experience with the Meeker youth each year and it is fun to watch kids like Dillon Hobbs (above) as he pins his opponent with a “Meeker cradle” learning the world’s oldest sport.

“Our community rocks,” Meeker Community Wrestling Club Coach Carl Padilla said after the annual Casey Turner Memorial youth wrestling tournament Saturday at Meeker High School. More than 350 wrestlers, including 62 from Meeker, participated in the tournament, which is an all-volunteer effort. “I’m extremely proud to call Meeker home,” Padilla said. “It’s not an easy task to host a tournament and I’m very grateful to all the friends and families who got together to make our tournament a success. Thank you all for your help and support; thank you Meeker.”
