He had watched them play over fuzzy Internet feeds before, but never live. “It was very exciting,” Kewan said. “I wished I could have watched them play a lot more during their high school ...

The Bears produced one of their best showings of the season at the John Tobin Invitational in Fairbanks by placing four wrestlers in the finals — three walked away as champions.
