Two tournaments have resulted in two second-place finishes so far this season for the Washington wrestling team.

After finishing second at the Westminster Tournament earlier in the season, the Blue Jays placed second again Friday and Saturday at the Raytown South Tournament.

Mt. Carmel, Kan., won the tournament championship with 725.5 points. Washington was second with 667.5 points.

Warrensburg placed third with 650 points followed by Ft. Osage (527.5), Pacific (504), Smith-Cotton (493), Raytown (491.5), Belton (474.5), Branson (474.5), Raytown South (314.5), Hillcrest (209.5), St. Joe Central (199), Raytown B (161) and Ruskin (98).

“We started the tournament a little slow, which put ourselves out of contention for the team title. We came back Saturday and had some big wins,” said Washington Head Coach Josh Ohm. “We’re happy with where we are as a team. Once we get the lineup we want around the time of the conference meet, we should be in really good shape.”

Washington had five individual champions, Parker Neptune, Nicholas Solter, Cole Hamai, Kyle Summers and Logan Baird.

Neptune (113 pounds) posted a 7-0 record, improving to 16-4 on the season. He pinned Mt. Carmel’s Braden O’Donnell in 1:01 in the finals.

“Parker dominated all of his matches. He didn’t get out of the first period. He won by either pin or tech fall in every match,” Ohm said. “Now that he’s down to 113, he’s been very good and the results are what we’ve wanted.”

Solter (126) had an 8-0 record, improving to 20-1 on the campaign. He won by major decision, 20-7, over Smith-Cotton’s Luke Archibeque in the finals.

“Solter scored in the bonus in every match and relied on his takedowns,” Ohm said. “He’s doing a great job for us.”

Hamai (145) went 8-0 at the event to remain unbeaten at 21-0. He won by major decision, 17-6, over Mt. Carmel’s Luke Wilson in the finals.

“Cole had a relatively close match against the No. 4 seed in the pool, but came back and ran through him in the finals,” Ohm said. “He felt like he had something to prove.”

Summers (182) posted a 7-0 record to stay unbeaten at 19-0. He won by major decision, 13-4, over Pacific’s Dalton Voyles in the finals.

“Kyle had no problem with anyone,” Ohm said. “He started the season a little beat up from football, but feels good now and has been dominant.”

Baird (195) had a 7-0 record, improving to 18-2 on the season. He won by decision, 7-3, over Mt. Carmel’s Ethan Harp in the finals.

“Logan is ranked No. 1 in the state (Class 3, 195) and pinned the No. 2 kid in the first period,” Ohm said. “We’re excited about how Logan is wrestling.”

Reaching the finals and placing second at 106 pounds was Cody Hey, who had a 5-2 record to improve to 12-7 overall.

“Cody had a really good tournament,” Ohm said. “He beat a tough Raytown kid in the semifinals, which was a huge win.”

Hey lost by decision, 12-6, to Warrensburg’s Taylor Brown in the finals. Both of Hey’s losses were against Brown.

Washington’s third-place finishers were Josh Luck and Matt Pecka.

Luck (138) had a 6-2 tournament record, improving to 15-5 on the campaign. He won by decision, 2-1, over Pacific’s Matthew Schimsa in the third-place match.

Pecka (285) posted a 6-2 record, improving to 17-3 on the season. He pinned Ruskin’s Jamal Karriem in 5:21 in the third-place match.

Washington’s Cody Gardner (132) notched a fourth-place finish with a 5-3 record, improving to 9-4 on the season. He lost his final two matches by injury default, including the third-place contest against Pacific’s Joe Rind, who beat Gardner earlier in the tournament.

Seventh-place finishers for the Blue Jays were Joe Omer and Jeremy Monehan.

Omer (120) had a 1-4 record, moving to 5-6 on the season. He pinned Hillcrest’s Karl Laursen in 3:56 in the seventh-place match.

Monehan (160) notched a 4-4 record, moving to 10-11 on the campaign. He won by forfeit over Mt. Carmel’s Brandon Williams in the seventh-place match. Monehan pinned Williams earlier in the tournament.

Also wrestling for the Blue Jays was Jacob Kliethermes (220), who had a 1-5 record, moving to 10-8 on the season.

Washington was open at 152 and 170 pounds.
