Congratulations to Senior Ronald Humphrey (Class of 2019) for signing a National Letter of Intent to wrestle at Ellsworth Junior College in Iowa Falls, Iowa. Ronald was recruited as a 174 lb'er for the Panthers, who compete in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA). The Ellsworth Wrestling Team closed the 2019 NJCAA National Tournament with a 5th place finish, their sixth straight top 8 finish at Nationals.
Notes Raiders Coach Zach McKeone, "Ronald's work ethic on the mat is second to none. I expect that he will compete for a starting spot in the lineup this year and be a great addition to the Ellsworth team." Coach Mike McQuary added, "College wrestling is tough physically and tough mentally- Ronald is built to succeed in that environment. I look forward to watching his college career progress."
Ronald finished his Riverwood career with a 66-12 record, highlighted by a 5th place finish in the State tournament in 2018. This past year he had a record of 24-4 with 18 pins.
