On February 9th, the Sugar River Wrestling Team participated in the WIAA Division 2 Regional at Evansville High School. The Raiders crowned two Regional Champions, Joe Quaglia at 126 and Robert Chenoweth at 145. Additionally, two wrestlers finished as Regional Runners-Up, Jack Diederich at 152 and Danny Enloe at 285. Finishing in the top two qualifies wrestlers to compete in Sectionals on February 16th, for a chance to wrestle in the 2019 Wisconsin State Wrestling Tournament. Sending four wrestlers to Sectionals is the most for the Sugar River Raiders since they qualified five in 2014.

"Regionals is always a bitter sweet end of the season, where some make it out and some don't. For those who don't, I feel the experience will help them out tremendously in the future," said Coach Pete Swenson. "As for our qualifiers, they had a great day! It's been a while since we had two champions and had four move onto sectionals. All these guys are peaking at the right time. They will need to continue their intensity this weekend in order to make it to state. The little things make a big difference at this point in the season, so we will be working on those during the week in order to prepare. If everyone wrestles up to their potential we could be moving all four onto state!"
