Prep roundup 12/9


Eatonville tourney

EATONVILLE — Four Grays Harbor performers received the Outstanding Wrestler Awards for their weight classes in the Eatonville Cruiser Classic on Saturday.

Elma’s Matt Gamino, who won all three contested matches at 120 pounds, Tyson Dick (with three pins and a technical fall at 145) and Brek McGaughy (4-0 at heavyweight) earned Outstanding Wrestler awards in the divisions. McGaughy wrestled up a weight in two of his bouts.

Hoquiam’s Tristan Stutesman went unbeaten to earn the Outstanding Wrestler honor at 132 pounds.

Despite a 4-0 record that included a pin of the Sultan wrestler who did receive the award, Elma’s Layne Sutten was bypassed for that award at 182 pounds. Hoquiam’s Jon Molina went unbeaten at 152.

Elma finished third in the dual-match tourney, which consisted of each team wrestling four dual contests. The Eagles lost to Bethel, 39-37, but downed Eatonville, 51-24, Hoquiam, 51-25, and Sultan, 43-29. Hoquiam lost to Eatonville, 45-25 and Bethel, 60-21, but beat the all-stars (a team composed primarily of JV performers), 54-6.

“They wrestled well and physical, the way I expect Elma wrestlers to come out,” Eagle coach Jason Dick said. “It’s way early (in the season), but the boys are working hard.”

Hoquiam coach Fidel Sanchez cited David Molitor for a fine performance at 138.

“If we had a full lineup, we’d be there with any team,” said Sanchez, whose team currently forfeits at four weights. “Any time we step on the mat, we give up 24 points.”

Elma will wrestle Rochester at Montesano on Tuesday. Hoquiam will compete in a double dual at Tenino on Wednesday.

Aberdeen wrestling

FIFE — Aberdeen’s Erikk Machowek placed third at 145 pounds in the Larry Brown Invitational at Fife on Saturday.

The Bobcats placed 12th in the tourney, won by perennial power Sunnyside.

“We wrestled flat today except Erikk, who was on the top of his game,” Bobcat coach Chuck Veloni said. “He was 100 percent improved over last year.”

The Bobcats split their squad among three tournaments. Justin Baldwin won the 160-pound title at the Franklin Pierce junior varsity tournament. Heavyweight Kohl Levao was second.

Aberdeen’s Alexis Miranda, at 155 pounds, and Teylor Wright (145) each tied for second in the White River Girls Tournament at Buckley.

“We had a good showing,” said Bobcat girls coach Craig Yakovich. “There were over 200 girls there.”

The Bobcats will open Evergreen 2A Conference competition Wednesday at home against Black Hills, then visit rival Hoquiam in a non-leaguer Thursday.

Warrenton tourney

WARRENTON, Ore. — Willapa Harbor’s Hunter Borden won the 182-pound title at the Warrenton Invitational Tournament on Saturday.

Borden trounced Ilwaco’s Adam Hernandez by major decision, 12-1, in the 182-pound final.

“He wrestled his most solid tournament for us and stepped up as a leader,” Willapa Harbor assistant coach John Enslow noted.

A successful run through the consolation round helped Willapa Harbor place second in the team competition. The combine scored 146 points, 18 behind team champion Ilwaco.

Willapa Harbor’s Matt Lewis wound up second at 132 pounds. He was pinned by Wahkiakum’s Alex Johnson in 3:20 in the title bout.

The Willapa combine received third-place finishes from Shiloh Borden (145) cousins Grant and Josh Camenzind (160 and 170 pounds) and Matthew Boyes at 195. Nick Betrozoff (113), Jason Church (152) and Allen Phansisay (220) each took fourth.

North Beach’s Elijah and Kaleb Towery finished second at 145 and 160 pounds, respectively. Daniel Fruh was third at heavyweight and Stefan Dycus took fourth at 182.


Mark Morris meet

LONGVIEW — Aberdeen’s Joseph Bowley placed third individually in the Mark Morris Sprint Pentathlon on Saturday.

Bowley totaled 83 points to easily pace 2A swimmers at the meet. Mountain View’s Alexander Suk and Chris Xue took the top two places with 94 and 86 points, respectively.

Aberdeen’s Colton Sundstrom placed 10th. Individual places are determined on the basis of points scored in a maximum of five races. No relays are contested and no team scores are compiled.

Bowley won the 25-yard freestyle in 12.33. Sundstrom captured the 500 free in 5:21.66.

“This is always a fun meet and we usually use it as a learning opportunity for the swimmers and coaches to see where improvements are needed for the season,” Bobcat coach Keith Lile said. “We got some great performances from Colton Sundstrom, Joseph Bowley, Levi Rose and Shane Golphenee. There are many other swimmers who are showing good progress so far this early season and I expect to see more improvement from everyone in the future. The biggest area of improvement needed is in our sprints and we’ll focus on that area over the next several weeks.”

200 free — 3. Colton Sundstrom. 200 IM — 2. Joseph Bowley. 8. Jordan Wakeman. 50 free — 15. Keegan Shippey. 19. Seth Caba. 21. Colton Dion. 100 fly — 21. Kyley Smith. 25.

Gulls 46, Wildcats 22

WESTPORT — Limiting Ocosta to single-digit scoring in every quarter, Raymond beat the Wildcats in a Pacific League opener Saturday at Westport.

Abby Maneman had 16 points, eight rebounds and four steals to pace the Gulls (1-0, 2-1). Hailee Williams added 12 points, while Aiysha Garcia pulled down 13 rebounds.

Despite the decisive win, the Gulls struggled offensively against the scrappy Wildcats (0-1, 0-5).

“That was the roughest 24-point win I’ve ever been a part of,” said a relieved Raymond coach Jon Schray.

Kayt Jones and Kate Christiansen had six points each for Ocosta.

“We’re getting better,” said Ocosta coach Rachel Wenzel. “We took care of the ball better. Our scoring woes are killing us, but we are a work in progress.”

Both teams return to action Monday, with Raymond hosting Montesano and Ocosta traveling to Mary M. Knight.

Navigators 38, Hyaks 33

OYEHUT — Northwest Christian rallied in the fourth quarter to edge North Beach in a Pacific League game Saturday at Oyehut.

The Hyaks took a 27-24 lead into the final period of the turnover-filled contest, but were limited to six points in the stanza.

“We came out pretty flat in the first half with not as much energy as we wanted and found ourselves trying to manufacture it coming out in the second half,” Hyak coach Peter Fry said. “They came out with a man press and we had a hard time dealing with that.”

Wakeena DeLaCruz checked in with eight points, eight steals and six rebounds for the Hyaks (0-1, 2-2). Mousey Shale had eight points and Quay Sotomish six points and eight rebounds for North Beach. Sotomish was also cited for defensive play.

The Hyaks visit Hoquiam for a non-leaguer Monday.

Hannah Frost was the leading scorer for the unbeaten Owls (3-0), with eight points. Carlie Adsero grabbed 12 rebounds and swiped five steals. Lauren Dierkop pulled down 11 rebounds to go with her seven points.

“We outrebounded them and they had the height advantage,” said Owl head coach Lance Valley. “They had two girls over six feet. We also hit some critical shots. Our defense played well throughout and kept the pressure on their highest scorer.”

Coach Valley praised Melodie Snyder for critical points.

The Owls will host Ocosta on Monday.

Mustangs 40, Elks 36

AMANDA PARK — Rallying after switching to a zone defense, Lake Quinault was unable to catch Trout Lake on Saturday at Amanda Park.

Romenita Begay scored 16 points, grabbed 11 rebounds, swiped six steals and contributed four blocks for the Elks (1-3). Annber Neeland pulled down nine rebounds and came up with two steals, three assists and seven blocks.

The Mustangs only had one player score in double figures.

“It was a concentrated team effort on defense,” said Elk assistant coach Jon Neeland. “We pressed more and they (the Mustangs) had more trouble with our zone defense.”

The Elk coaching staffing gave the entire team credit for fighting back from a 15-point deficit in the third quarter and Faith Thomas for her individual defensive effort.

Lake Quinault will host Willapa Valley next Saturday.

Elks 46, Mustangs 41 (OT)

AMANDA PARK — Lake Quinault’s Dalton Lines hit a 3-point basket at the buzzer to force overtime and Lake Quinault maintained the momentum to edge Trout Lake in non-league play Saturday at Amanda Park.

Chris Edman contributed key baskets and rebounds in overtime for the Elks (1-3).

Dalton Lines was the leading scorer for the Elks with 14 points, 12 rebounds and four steals. He was closely followed by Erdman with 13 points, 18 rebounds, and four blocks.
