Richard Banas II

With the prep winter sports season all but done with the exception of the state wrestling meet, it is time to hand out the annual "Richies" for those individuals or teams that had a remarkable season. Out of all the players and coaches considered, here are the top five performances deserving of a Richie, which come with a pat on the back and a handshake for a job well done.

Jim Wilson (Wrestling, McNair High) — Jim Wilson may attend McNair High, but he is a Lodi resident and all the 160-pound wrestler has done is put together one of the best seasons in Lodi history. Wilson has fashioned a 54-2 record and is ranked third in the state behind Vince Waldhauser of Oak Ridge, to whom Wilson has lost to both times this year. After punching his ticket to the state meet for the second year in a row with a runner-up finish to Waldhauser at the Sac-Joaquin Section Masters Championships last weekend, Wilson, only a junior, has a good chance at medaling.
