Wednesday’s Wrestling: Bearcats Take Down Bulldogs
By The Chronicle
W.F. West had six wrestlers win by pin to help the Bearcats earn a 45-28 win in a non-league wrestling dual meet in Chehalis on Wednesday.
Bo Davis (126) won by pin against Montesano’s Aaron Lano and Caleb Walters (132) pinned Lucas Salstrom. W.F. West’s Mason Morones (145) won by pin against Malaki Osbekoff and Ben Ecklund (170) defeated Mason Lutz by pin.
Chris Powe (182) earned another pin for the Bearcats against Auggie Arreguin and Chase Conaway (285) pinned Kenny Koonrad.
W.F. West’s Darren Gray (132) defeated Cooper Johansson by a 4-0 decision and Bryson Boyd (220) won by forfeit for the Bearcats.
“It wasn’t one of our better performances. We came off the weekend a little beat up. We’ve just got to go out and wrestle a little better,” W.F. West coach Jamie Rakevich said. “Montesano has some tough kids. It was good for us to see that competition and they showed us some places we need to work.”
W.F. West travels to Vancouver next Friday and Saturday to compete in the Pacific Coast Wrestling Championships at Evergreen High School.
