Opening its wrestling season Tuesday at home, Washington claimed dual victories over Rolla 50-21 and Owensville 52-21.

Thursday’s meet at Union was postponed due to the weather and rescheduled for Jan. 16.

The Blue Jays are scheduled to wrestle Friday and Saturday at the Westminster Tournament.

“This year we have made it very clear that we have extremely high expectations and goals for our team, so we are very hard on ourselves when it comes to critiquing our performance,” said Washington Head Coach Josh Ohm. “After Tuesday night, we know we have a lot of areas that need improvement. With that being said, I thought for the first time out, we looked aggressive and always tried to score. In both meets, our conditioning was at another level, so that is very pleasing for us.”

Washington senior Cole Hamai set the school record in both career wins with 138 and career pins with 87.

“We’re very proud of Cole’s accomplishments. He is on track to have over 100 career falls, which is a great accomplishment,” Ohm said. “Cole has become a dominant wrestler over the past three years. We really hope to see him step up to an all new level with one more chance at a state title this year.”

Rolla defeated Owensville in the other dual meet, 49-27.


Washington captured nine of the 13 contested matches and 10 overall in the win over Rolla.

Winners contested matches for the Blue Jays were:

• 106 —  Cody Hey won by major decision over Seth Hofheins, 14-6.

“Cody was impressive in his first high school match,” Ohm said. “He really pushed the pace and opened up the gap as the match went on. That’s exactly what we have spent the last month working on in the room with not just him, but everyone.”

• 113 — Cole Fregalette pinned Joseph Ward in 38 seconds.

• 120 — Parker Neptune won by decision over Carter Daniels, 10-4.

“Parker looked very impressive. We knew that was going to most likely be the best match of the night. Both are returning state qualifiers who expect to win,” Ohm said. “Parker started slow, but gained confidence as the match went on. Without a questionable call, he would have gotten major in that match. In the past, Parker has struggled against kids with long, lanky body styles. It was great to see him overcome that without any trouble in his first match. It’s all a direct result of the work he put in over the summer.”

• 132 — Nicholas Solter pinned Will Crutcher in 3:52.

• 138 — Cody Gardner pinned Ryan Markovic in 2:52.

• 152 — Hamai pinned John Sprow in 1:34.

• 170 — Jeremy Monehan won by major decision over Marquis Reece, 12-4.

• 220 — Jacob Kliethermes pinned Wyatt Thompson in 38 seconds.

• 285 — Matt Pecka won by decision over Chase Bartle, 5-0.

Logan Baird (195) won by forfeit.

Rolla’s winners were:

• 126 — Tristan Barr pinned Jonathan Kelpe in 2:43.

• 145 — Gage Maxwell won by decision over Josh Luck, 4-0.

• 160 — Seth Veatch pinned Corey Kluesner in 3:39.

• 182 — Austyn Harmount pinned Jake Nauman in 2:31.


Washington claimed six of the 10 contested matches and 10 overall in the win over Owensville.

Winners contested matches for the Blue Jays were:

• 113 — Fregalette won by major decision over Wyatt Lauth, 22-11.

• 132 — Solter won by technical fall over Robert Weirich, 26-10.

“Nicholas did a great job to work on his feet. He really wants to focus on his takedowns and getting 21 of them in two matches is a great start,” Ohm said. “We work so hard in the room on being aggressive and always looking for points. It was good to see someone doing that.”

• 145 — Luck won by decision over Wyatt Harrell, 7-2.

• 152 — Hamai won by technical fall over David Weirich, 15-0.

• 170 — Monehan won by technical fall over Bodie Bombach, 18-2.

• 285 — Pecka pinned Dalton Escalante in 5:34.

Winning by forfeit for Washington were Hey (106), Neptune (120), Kelpe (126) and Baird (195).

Owensville’s winners were:

• 138 — Matthew Pohlmann pinned Gardner in 1:42.

• 160 — Conrad Bombach won by decision over Kluesner, 9-5.

• 182 — Colton Lottman pinned Nauman in 32 seconds.

• 220 — Alton Harrell pinned Kliethermes in 1:27.

“Our kids worked extremely hard over the last month and it was nice to see that pay off immediately,” Ohm said. “For us, it’s going to always be about improving every time we step on the mat and doing whatever needs to be done to be prepared for the postseason.”
