The High School wrestling team is gearing up for the post season as this year two extra rounds of competition have been added to the road to Hays. The move is not expected to be permanent, as it was made in an effort to keep the number of wrestlers and spectators lower during this Covid era of high school sports. That new format begins today the first round of competition and will take place in Marysville at the 3-2-1A District meet. Onaga will take on the likes of AACHS, Doniphan West, Horton, Marysville, Pleasant Ridge, Riley County, Sabetha, Nemaha Central, Troy, and Riverside. The top four wrestlers in each weight class will move on to the Regional Tournament which will take place in Rossville next Saturday. The top four from that tournament will move on to the Sub-State tournament the following Saturday, February 20th, and the top four wrestlers in each weight class from that tournament will go on to the State Tournament in Hays the last weekend of February. Wrestling gets underway at noon today and will be completed on two mats. All matches will be live streamed on the Marysville Bulldog Wrestling Facebook page which is linked below. Good luck to all of our wrestlers and GO BUFFALOES!!! https://www.facebook.com/Marysville-Bulldog-Wrestling-424615281064962

Mrs. Huerter has some exciting things on in the 3rd grade class! Every month all the students in 3rd grade receive a free book. The funds for the books are given by patrons from Onaga and friends of Mrs. Huerter from all over the United States. She worked to acquire enough funds for each 3rd grader to receive a book for all nine months that they are in school! Thank you Mrs. Huerter for going above and beyond for your kids!
