Two Pirates take championships at classic


KITTITAS - Tory Knebel won his fourth consecutive Coyote Classic championship Saturday to lead the Pomeroy Pirates at the classic.

Knebel won all three of his matches to take the 170-pound title. Knebel ran his season record to 28-1 with the three wins.

Jacob Moore claimed another individual title for the Pirates, going 3-0 to win the 145 title and improving to 25-5 on the season.

The invite drew 14 teams and host Kittitas took the team title with 156 points.

The Pirates got second place finishes from Wyatt Jenkins at 160, and Austin Reisdorph at 195. Both lost in the title matches.

Nick Tewalt took a third place ribbon for Pomeroy at 152, and Clayton King, at 106, and Wyatt Hyer, at 138, both wrestled to fourth place finishes for the Pirates.

"The kids wrestled well considering we only had one practice this week because of school closures (for weather)," assistant coach Fred Knebel said. "It was nice for our kids to see kids we don't see very often, but will see at state. It gave us an opportunity to see where we are at."

Pomeroy travels to Colfax Thursday for a triple dual and closes out the regular season Saturday in Pasco against Tri-Cities Prep.
