CATHLAMET, Wash. - Pomeroy's wrestlers won the Down River Challenge here Saturday behind a trio of first-place finishes for Pirate grapplers.

Wyatt Jenkins at 160 pounds, Tory Knebel at 170 and Austin Reisdorph at 195 all won their weight divisions.

Knebel was also named Outstanding Wrestler for 152 pounds and up after his tournament.

"I thought our kids really picked it up a notch," Pomeroy coach Brian Slaybaugh said. "Things are coming together for everybody."

Pomeroy finished with 156.5 points, followed by Wahkiakum with 144.5 and Willapa Bay at 124.

Mike Wymore finished second at 220 pounds, Clayton King was fourth at 106, Kyle Hyer was fifth at 132, Wyatt Hyer was fifth at 138, Nick Tewalt was fifth at 152, Tyler King was fifth at 160, and Blaine Reisdorph was seventh at 138 and Jacob Moore was seventh at 145 pounds.

Also wrestling for Pomeroy were Taylor Lewis at 152 pounds and Jacob Shuh at 160.

Moore was disqualified from his first match when he was called for an illegal slam, Slaybaugh said, and had to wrestle through the back half of the bracket to finish seventh. Along the way, a scheduling mistake pitted Moore against the eventual winner at 145 pounds, and Moore pinned him.

"I thought our kids wrestled really well," Slaybaugh said.

Pomeroy hosts Colfax, Reardan, Lind-Ritzville and Liberty Tuesday evening.

Dayton girls fall to Asotin,

Waitsburg-Prescott over weekend

DAYTON - Dayton's McKayla Bickelhaupt pumped in 18 points and dished out four assists in Friday's loss against Asotin, 61-52, then on Saturday night, Dayton fell, 38-23, to Waitsburg-Prescott. The top scorer in this game was Bickelhaupt again, this time with eight points.

Both teams in the game Friday spent a lot of time at the free-throw line. Dayton made 15-of-22 free throws, while Asotin was just 10-of-25.

Still, Asotin prevailed while being outrebounded 34-18 by Dayton. The Bulldogs had 18 turnovers and helped lead to 20 more shot attempts by Asotin.

It was an offensive breakdown for Dayton in the game against W-P, only mustering 23 points.

"I think for us, we were trying a little too hard to score and we didn't shoot very well," Dayton coach Clayton Strong said, "We played a little tight. The effort was there, the shots just weren't going. When we broke the press, we got good looks and we just couldn't hit."

The Bulldogs fell to 0-6 and 0-2.

Dayton plays an alumni game Dec. 27.

Helix girls drop basketball

games to Arlington, Imbler

HELIX - The Helix Grizzlies fell to 1-6 as the shorthanded girls fell first to Arlington, 30-22, on Friday, and then Imbler, 53-24, on Saturday.

The Grizzlies only had three varsity players available for the weekend's action as four were out due to either injury or illness.

On Saturday night, Helix was outscored 17-5 in the first quarter and was never able to get within shouting distance.

Imbler led 35-15 at the half.

"I felt like we really covered the outside very well, but inside Imbler really did a great job working the ball inside, and they got more shooting done inside under the basket then we did," Helix coach Melissa Nitz said.

"We knew it was going to be a tough game," she said.

Against Arlington Friday night, the Griz were able to keep it close, trailing just 10-8 at the half, but an 11-5 third quarter proved to be Helix's downfall as the Honkers pulled away.

The teams were an even 9-9 in the fourth.

Helix hosts Elgin Tuesday.
