It was a busy holiday season for the boys basketball and wrestling teams at Washington High School.

The wrestling squad competed in tournaments at Raytown South and Lindbergh while the boys basketball squad was in the 16-team Meramec Holiday Tournament.

The girls basketball team was last in action Dec. 20 at the Peoples Bank Holiday Classic at Sullivan High School.

Wrestling

The wrestling squad has lived up to their high expectations through the first month of the season.

The Blue Jays registered second-place team finishes at both the Westminster and Raytown South Tournaments followed by a fourth-place finish at the Lindbergh Tournament.

Washington currently is ranked third in the Class 3 team tournament rankings behind Neosho and Staley by www.missouriwrestling.com.

Leading the way are seniors Cole Hamai and Kyle Summers, both of whom are undefeated on the season.

Hamai stands with a 29-0 record and is ranked second in Class 3 at 145 pounds by missouriwrestling.com.

Summers stands with a 26-0 record and is ranked third in Class 3 at 182 pounds.

Overall, the Blue Jays currently have seven wrestlers ranked in the top eight of their respective weight classes in Class 3 by missouriwrestling.com.

Logan Baird is ranked first at 195 pounds with a 24-3 record.

Nicholas Solter is ranked third at 126 pounds with a 29-1 record.

Parker Neptune is ranked sixth at 113 pounds with a 20-6 record.

Matt Pecka is ranked sixth at 285 pounds with a 25-4 record.

Cody Gardner is ranked eighth at 132 pounds with an 8-4 record. He’s currently out with an injury and hopes to return in time for the district tournament.

Washington returns to action Thursday, Jan. 9, at Granite City, Ill., and competes at the GAC Tournament Friday-Saturday, Jan. 10-11, at Ft. Zumwalt North High School.

Boys Basketball

Washington heads into Friday’s home game against Timberland with a 6-4 record after starting the season with a 5-0 mark.

The Blue Jays won the Gold Division title of the Borgia Turkey Tournament with wins over Union, O’Fallon Christian and Borgia.

They improved to 5-0 with victories over Parkway Central and Ft. Zumwalt East.

Playing on consecutive days at the GAC-Suburban Shootout and the Bank of Sullivan Shootout, Washington lost its first two games against Kirkwood and Jefferson City.

Competing at the Meramec Tournament, the Blue Jays went 1-2, defeating Marquette and falling to Parkway West and Lafayette.

Washington has played its last five games without starting guard Jacob Mulkey, who has an injured ankle. The hope is for Mulkey to play in the Timberland game. He’s averaging 10.2 points per game.

Ronnie Suggs leads the Blue Jays in scoring, averaging 21.9 points per game to go with 7.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists.

Brad Carpenter is averaging 13.6 points per contest, shooting 43 percent from three-point range.

Mike Morgan has given the Blue Jays a spark, averaging 7.4 points and 4.3 rebounds per game.

Other top contributors have been Patrick Menke, Austin Subke, Isaiah West and Trey Walsh.

Following Friday’s game against Timberland, the Blue Jays (1-0 in the GAC Central) host Winfield Monday at 6 p.m. and play in the Coaches vs. Cancer Shootout Thursday, Jan. 9, against Holt at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis at 11 a.m.

Girls Basketball

Washington heads into Friday’s home game against Timberland with a 5-2 record.

The Lady Jays won their first three games over St. Clair, Warrenton and New Haven.

Competing at the Peoples Bank Holiday Classic, Washington took consolation honors with a loss to Waynesville followed by victories over Pattonville and Cuba.

Washington has a balanced scoring attack through its first seven games.
