Warrior Wrestling

The RHS wrestling team had a visit on Saturday morning from Warrior Wrestling alumni Nick Boykin. He came to share some of what he's learned since he arrived on campus at Ohio State. Nick juggles D1 wrestling with his quest to make a US Olympic Greco Team. He recently won a Senior National Greco Championship at 97kg and entrenched himself as the #6 ranked wrestler in his weight class. It was an honor to have him visit!
