Wrestlers go to mat in ‘Rubber Chicken Classic’

More than 100 middle school wrestlers, including athletes from Chapman, Homer and Voznesenka, participated in the Rubber Chicken Classic at Skyview in Soldotna last Saturday.

The event gets its name from the coveted awards given.

“The winner of each weight class gets a rubber chicken instead of a medal,” said Chris Perk, wrestling coach. “The kids love it.”

The event is sponsored by the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District for wrestlers in grades 7 and 8.
