RITZVILLE — Pins were plentiful here Thursday night as Pomeroy and Waitsburg-Prescott joined White Swan and host Lind-Ritzville-Sprague in a mix-and-match wrestling competition.
Pomeroy grapplers competed in 13 matches, with all of them settled by fall. The Pirates were victorious in 10 of them.
And Waitsburg-Prescott wrestled 14 times. All were decided by pin, with W-P winning five times.
“We had a great night,” Pomeroy coach Brian Slaybaugh said. “Our guys were aggressive and really went after their opponents.”
“Our wrestlers have shown great improvement,” W-P coach Lanny Adams said of his individuals, who are part of a third-year program.
Clayton King at 138 pounds won three matches to lead Pomeroy. Steve Wysocki at 132 and Taylor Lewis at 160 won twice each.
Tristan Newman at 285 pounds and Kavin Kuykendall at 145 won two matches each for W-P, and David Just at 126 accounted for the team’s fifth victory.
