LR wrestling team impressive off the mats, too

My husband and I were on vacation last week and had the pleasure of bumping into the Lake Roosevelt High School wrestling team on January 21. We had just ordered our lunch at the Sullivan Road McDonalds restaurant in Spokane when the bus pulled in. We raised two sons, so expected we might have a rather noisy and chaotic lunch.

Not so - these young people were great! We saw courtesy, civil and interesting conversation, and respectful interactions with McDonalds staff, coaches/chaperones, other patrons, and each other.

I don't know how the team fared at the wrestling tournament they were attending, but in our book, these kids are winners. Please let the team members, their principal, and their coaches know that we were rooting for them and wish them all a great future.
