SEELEY LAKE - Seeley Lake Elementary fifth-grader Ben Haley has been wrestling since he was seven-years-old. He just completed his third season with the Bonner Wrestling Club. He thinks the sport has a lot of personality, said it has made him better at other sports and has taught him discipline and to work hard.
