The Hillsboro Spartans’ boys wrestling team did just enough on the home mat Wednesday night to hold off the shorthanded and upset-minded Wilsonville Wildcats.

"As a lifelong participant and fan of all things sport, I appreciate the work and time necessary to excel on the various fields of play. It’s that appreciation that drives me to both acknowledge, reward, and celebrate the commitment made by boys and girls athletes from the field to the court, mat to the pool, diamond to the track, and beyond."
