The regular season is half over and mat-fans finally got a chance to see the home boys in action without going on the road.
A number of area teams were in town on Thursday for a mixer in preparation for the Choteau Classic that was held on Friday and Saturday. There were two mats of non-stop performances.
At times Cowboys were on both mats at the same time, so a lot of head turning was going on in the stands.
Of the 28 matches the Cowboys were in, 20 were won by the home boys.
There were a lot of pin wins and many of those came with pretty quick times.

County commissioners passed a resolution Wednesday morning hoping it provides for better public participation.
Before that took place however, the commissioners, following a pattern after elections, rotated the chairmanship.
Sandra Broesder had been the commission chairman, but on a move by Joe Christiaens, it was moved to appoint Cynthia Johnson. With a second from Broesder, the motion passed on a 3-0 vote.
