Long reign ahead in Bossier?

Two sophomores from Bossier City took their place atop the state wrestling mountain Saturday night.

Airline's Matt Rabinowitz and Parkway's Matt Vetkoetter won their first state titles in Kenner and one can only imagine, should they stay healthy, they will be back next February to defend them. And the February after that.

Both had to overcome physical setbacks late in the season. For Rabinowitz, it was battling through a brief illness Friday at the state meet. For Vetkoetter, it was a hyperextended knee shortly before the city and regional championships.

All things being equal -- including health -- you should hear quite a bit out of these two for the next two wrestling seasons.
