Lake Roosevelt wrestlers place in Cashmere tourney

Against bigger schools, team takes second


The Raider wrestlers competed in Cashmere on Saturday, where the team placed second and two Raiders placed first.

Colton Jackson took the champion spot in the 113-pound weight class.

“Colton Jackson had a small bracket and only wrestled two matches and he scored two pins,” Head Coach Billy Monroe said. “He has not been scored on yet this season.”

Wrestling at 120, Robert Thomas placed first.

“Robert Thomas also had a great tournament,” Monroe said. “He won a close semi-finals match by two points and then scored a pin in the finals.”

As a team, Lake Roosevelt placed second out of 13 teams with 171 points, while Mt. Baker won with 250 points.

“Placing second as a team was a nice surprise considering that most of the schools there were bigger A schools,” Monroe said.

“Both of our 285 kids, Sherwin Vargas and Joey Tynan, placed, which was exciting,” Monroe said. Tynan placed third and Vargas placed fifth.

“We still have lots of room to improve and this next weekend’s tournaments should push our kids even more,” Monroe said.

A few wrestlers are going to a Tri-State tournament at North Idaho College in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho on Saturday, Dec. 21, Monroe explained, while the rest of the team is going to Newport on the same day to face off against some Spokane area schools.
