PASCO — Pomeroy grapplers dominated the Tri-Cities Prep wrestling meet Tuesday, posting 18 wins to just four losses at the meet which hosted junior varsity squads from Pasco, Chiawana, Southridge and Hanford, as well as varsity squads from Waitsburg-Prescott, Tri-Cities Prep and Burbank.
“We did really well for our first outing,” Pomeroy coach Brian Slaybaugh said.
Nine different Pirates emerged from the meet unscathed.
“Wyatt Hyer, he came out on fire,” Slaybaugh said, “just like how he left off last season. He was real aggressive and acted like he wanted to do something this season. I was real proud of how he wrestled.
“Wyatt Jenkins had one really tough match,” Slaybaugh said. “He looked good.”
No team scores were kept at the meet.
