Stalder, Santana to State for Wa-Hi


MOSES LAKE - Fresh off a district championship performance at 138 pounds, Wa-Hi's Anthony Stalder did himself one better at the Class 4A regional wrestling tournament that wrapped up here Saturday.

Stalder posted a 3-0 record over the weekend and will be one of two Blue Devil grapplers traveling to Tacoma next weekend for the annual Mat Classic.

Luis Santana will accompany Stalder on the western Washington trip. He finished second at 195 pounds.

"You always hope for more, but we're happy to make the trip," said Wa-Hi coach Clayton Hudiberg. "We'll now focus on those two (wrestlers). We hope they have good performances."

Wa-Hi had two wrestlers finish fifth - Wil Babbitt (120 pounds) and Logan Reardon (220).

Blue Devil heavyweight Quinn Piver was sixth while two other Wa-Hi competitors - Zach Anderson (152) and Zane Henderson (170) - did not place after going 0-2.

Wa-Hi was tied for seventh in the 13-team ladder with Big Nine Conference foe Davis. Both teams scored 62 points.

Mead took the team title with 278 points. Moses Lake was second with 137, and Central Valley was third with 134 points. Chiawana (126) and Wenatchee (71) rounded out the top five.
