Cedarcrest wrestling struggles at season-opening tourney, with only one wrestler placing in event

Good Wednesday morning. We’ll have last night’s hoops roundup in a bit, but we first want to wrap up the action on the mat from this past weekend.

Cedarcrest High School’s wrestling team had a tough go of it in their season-opening tournament down at White River High School in Buckley, only placing one wrestler on the podium after all was said and done.

That was Caleb Lay at 195 lbs., who went 2-1 with all matches decided by pin in his weight class to take a tie for third in the event. He opened his action with a win, then was himself pinned before recording another pin in his third match to get the third place spot.

None of the other CHS varsity athletes who competed placed, and most were eliminated well before placing matches in their weight classes.

The Red Wolves’ JV’s also competed in a separate JV tournament, with two wrestlers – Brodie Robertson (160) and Mac Miles (182) both placing fourth in their respective weight classes.

There were also a couple of head-to-head matchups among Red Wolves in the event. In the varsity competition, Matt Weiner and Fred Reid competed in a loser-out match at 170 lbs., with Weinert taking the win and eliminating Reid from the tournament; Weinert was eliminated in his next match, and neither CHS’er placed in the bracket. Also, in JV action at 170, Alan Horna defeated Carson Campbell by a pin in a loser-out tilt; neither ended up placing in their bracket.

CHS is at the Decatur Invite on Saturday in Federal Way, then opens action at home this coming Monday in a double-dual with Lindbergh and Mountlake Terrace. Action starts at 6:00 p.m.
