Fundraiser Underway For Championship Rings

The Blackwell Wrestling Club is raising funds to buy championship rings for this year’s BHS wrestling team. The club will be selling their famous menu of loaded baked potatoes, the same ones served at the Kay County Fair, on Saturday April 29thfrom 8am to 4pm at Memorial Park. In addition to their normal menu, they will also have a loaded breakfast potato, cinnamon rolls, coffee, nachos and bottled water. The club is also selling State Championship T-shirts, which can be purchased online at

Wrestling Club president Haley Goff stated the club is trying to raise approximately $9,000 dollars to purchase the 31 rings for the wrestlers, coaches and student managers. Goff stated, “We are extremely proud of this year’s team, and we would like to give them a memento to recognize their hard work. It also gives them team something that they will have forever to remember this year’s historic season.”
