Gabe Sommers, Ririe wrestling

Ririe’s Gabe Sommers concluded his season with a pin and another state title.

The taste of silver apparently wasn’t to the liking of Ririe freshman Gabe Sommers.

After placing second at the 2018 state championships, senior Gabe Sommers (50-1) reeled off three straight state championships for the Bulldogs, culminating in a title-match pin at Nampa’s Idaho Center on Feb. 28.

With three golds and one silver on his state tournament resume, Sommers is in a class by himself among the Ririe wrestling elite — becoming the schools first entrant into the 3-time champion club.

In addition to his state win, Sommers mined gold at the Marsh Valley Invitational, Buhl Invitational, Tiger Brawl, Challis Invite, and the 2A District 6 conference championships
