Pirates go 14-for-15 against L-R, T-C Prep


POMEROY - Tory Knebel, Austin Reisdorph, Kyle Hyer and Ryan Smith won two matches each and Pomeroy wrestlers were victorious in 14-of-15 matches overall here Tuesday night against wrestlers from Lind-Ritzville, Tri-Cities Prep and Wa-Hi's junior varsity team.

"That's probably a first for us," said Pirates coach Brian Slaybaugh. "It was a pretty incredible night."

Knebel, the Pirates' crackerjack 170-pounder, extended his season record to 25-1 by recording first-period pins over Zane Henderson and Louis Contreras, both of Wa-Hi.

Reisdorph hiked his record to 22-2 by winning at two weight classes. He pinned Wa-Hi's Dylan Roediger at 195 pounds and then pinned Lind-Ritzville's Grayson Morris in the first period at 220 pounds.

Hyer, wrestling at 132, decisioned a pair of Blue Devils, Alexander Lybbert 11-7 and Daniel Camacho 10-9. And Smith pinned Lind-Ritzville's Drew Wilke in the second period and Tri-Cities Prep's John Hylden in the first period at 160 pounds.

"It was a really good night for a couple of our younger kids," said Slaybaugh, a 1983 Pomeroy graduate. "Kyle Hyer at 132 won a couple of close matches that should help his confidence, and Taylor Lewis at 145 had a nice win."

Lewis pinned the Jaguars' Lewis Nicacio in the first period.

Wyatt Jenkins, one of the Pirates' 160-pounders, pinned John Freer of Wa-Hi in the second period to bump his season record to 21-1.

Pomeroy is scheduled to wrestle at Colfax on Thursday, but the match is in doubt because of a winter storm that dumped nearly a foot of snow here Tuesday night and this morning.

"There's no school here today because of the snow," Slaybaugh said. "We've got close to 12 inches on the ground and we're not sure if we'll be going to Colfax or not."
