Dalton’s Brandon Ryder qualified for OYWA Youth Wrestling state tournament this past weekend at Glenn Oak High School. He placed 5th.
Ryder is one of the hard-working members of the growing youth wrestling program. The youth program, led by coaches Mark Siders, Brian Russell, Jeff Burris, and Jason Boyer, is open to Dalton students in kindergarten through sixth grade.
Wrestling runs in the Ryder family. Brandon’s brothers wrestle and his oldest brother, Austin, a Dalton senior, will compete this weekend at the state tournament at the Schottenstein Center in Columbus.
