Weekend Prep Roundup: Five East County wrestlers reach finals at Vashon


Vashon Island Invitational

VASHON — Montesano made the most of its one championship finalist, while Elma had four wrestlers in the championshi finals, during an extremely competitive Vashon Island Invitational on Saturday.

Montesano’s Jacob Ellefson and Elma’s Brek McGaughy won titles, with the Bulldogs grabbing eighth place overall and the Eagles 10th overall. Forks won the team championship.

An all-Elma final in the 220-pound final guaranteed one Elma champion — Brek McGaughy decisioned teammate Austin Carrell, 4-3.

Elma’s Tanner Sample, in the 132 final, and Tyson Dick, in the 145 final, took second overall. Sample lost to Kelso’s Tyler Wicken by major decision, 10-0. Dick lost to Zillah’s Diego Herandnez, 10-7, in their match.

Austin Cristelli finished the Elma placers with a third-place finish at 152 pounds, a 2-1 win over Zillah’s Christian Francisco.

“The tournament competition was the toughest it has been in years,” Elma head coach Jason Dick said. “I thought our guys wrestled hard, but I thought we could have gotten a few more placers. The guys wrestling in the finals wrestled really well against some really tough kids.”

Montesano had four other placers in the tournament — two thirds and two fifths.

Tyler Izatt, at 106, defeated Trevor Newburn, of Ridgefield, 6-4, to take third. Anthony Louthan, at 182, knocked off Lake Stevens’ Mason Beaver, 4-1, to finish third. Austin King, at 132, and Taylor Rupp, at 195, finished fifth.

“All five kids wrestled well and wrestled a lot of matches today,” Montesano head coach Jeff Klinger, who was home with the flu, said. “We are excited for them to have those kind of results at a really good tournament.”

North Mason Invitational

BELFAIR — Aberdeen finished up Saturday’s North Mason Invitational with five third-place finishers and a sixth-place finish as a team.

Erikk Machowek, at 138 pounds, was joined by Tristen Jimenez (145), Kolby Shelton (152), Tavo Sanchez (170), Jordon Logan (285) and Kaleb Levao (285) with third-place finishes.

Aberdeen did not land a wrestler in the finals and came away with a sixth-place finish out of 17 teams.

“I’m happy with their performances,” AHS head coach Chuck Veloni said. “Kolby Shelton and Kaleb Levao, first-year senior wrestlers, both did extremely well and have wrestled much better than anticipated.”

Levao won the junior varsity tournament at North Mason on Friday.

Third Place — 138: Erikk Machowek def. Kad Wilford (Port Townsend), 4-3. 145: Tristen Jimenez def. Larry Anderson (Columbia River), 9-6. 152: Kolby Shelton dec. Gavyn Baird (Shelton), 13-10. 170: Tavo Sanchez maj. dec. Washington Lagauana (Cent. Kitsap), 13-0. 285: Jordon Logan pinned Kaleb Levao, 2:42.


Trojans 54, Vikings 49

MENLO — Pe Ell ruled the offensive glass in upsetting Willapa Valley in the Jack Q. Pearson Holiday Classic on Saturday at Tenoski Gym.

Austin Arrington scored 16 points for the Trojans, who owned a 31-17 rebounding bulge.

“We gave up 15 offensive rebounds and lose by five, that was the game,” Viking coach John Peterson said. “That and they shot 8-of-14 in the first quarter. I was proud of how hard we played, especially in the second half. But you’ve got to rebound.”

Down by 10 with about five minutes remaining, the Vikings (6-2) cut the margin to two at 49-47 with 2:20 remaining. Pe Ell, however, converted a pair of offensive rebounds to settle the issue.

Stephen Camenzind scored 19 points, while Cody Buchanan added 13 for Valley. Hunter Gray and Jason Fluke were cited for reserve play.

Willapa Valley standout Matt Konigsberger missed his second straight contest with an infected knee. His status for Friday’s Pacific League crucial at North Beach remains in doubt.

Each team in the boys portion of the Pearson tournament finished with 1-1 records (all pairings were pre-determined). The Vikings, if they so chose, could claim the unofficial championship on the basis of point differential.

“We’ve played four back-to-back (games) this year and it just caught up to us,” Wishkah coach Matt Ferrier said. “We did some good things, we did some bad things, but at the same time we played with a lack of energy. We were fatigued.

Gavin Baltzell and Trey Berge shared Wishkah scoring honors with eight points each. Keigan Gardiner dished out five assists.

“We played much better, but turnovers killed us,” Lake Quinault head coach Clinton Potter said.

Bannish praised Karli Friese for her solid game and Harden for playing well.
