Bonner state runner-up for Hounds

Jones County junior Trey Bonner placed second in the class 5A 285-pound division at the state traditional wrestling tournament last weekend, sweeping through his first three matches before falling to defending state champion Seven Richards of Cass in the title match on Saturday.

Bonner, who actually weighs only 258 pounds, finished the season with a 38-2 record. Richards, a senior, was 44-2.

“I knew he would be tough, but I thought I might have a chance if I could hang with him through the first period,” Bonner said. “But I made one mistake and he was able to get me over.

“Still, I feel good about how I did here. I’ve still got another year and feel I should have a good chance to win it if I keep working and getting better.”

First year Jones County coach Kyle Smith said the same.
