Tuning up for a postseason with high expectations, Washington defeated Pacific Thursday in its final dual wrestling meet of the season.

The Blue Jays improved to 11-3 in dual meets with a 63-18 win at Pacific High School.

“No Class 3 team pushed us this year. We feel we beat ourselves against Holt and we weren’t ready to wrestle Marquette and Francis Howell. I feel like we should have been undefeated,” said Washington Head Coach Josh Ohm. “We’re in a good spot. We’re wrestling with a lot of confidence.”

Pacific also competed Thursday against Union, registering a 43-22 victory. The Indians ended the night against the Blue Jays.

“Washington has a tremendous team. There aren’t many weak spots in their lineup as far as a dual team goes. And they’re a good tournament team. They’ve got four, five or six horses who can go deep in a tournament,” said Pacific Head Coach Rob Schimsa. “It was a wakeup call to our kids to realize that we may be Four Rivers Conference champs, but there are teams that are better than us, so we have to keep working.”

Washington won nine of the 12 contested matches and 11 of the 14 overall.

One of the top matches took place at 160 pounds, where Pacific’s Dalton Voyles pinned Washington’s Jeremy Monehan in 5:02.

Monehan held a 3-0 lead after two periods. Voyles came back to take a 4-3 advantage before registering the pin.

“I don’t know if Dalton was a little tired from his first match. He’s wrestled Monehan before and handled him pretty well. He had a more difficult time with him this time,” Schimsa said. “Dalton is a hard worker who never gives up.”

Ohm was pleased with Monehan’s performance.

“It was a great match. Monehan is a kid who we’re not concerned with his wins or losses. We’re concerned with how he’s wrestling,” Ohm said. “That’s a match we know we can win now, so it gives us confidence.”

Washington’s winners in contested matches were:

• Cody Hey (106) pinned Jai Lewis in 3:08;

• Nicholas Solter (126) pinned Zain Mathena in 1:57;

• Cody Gardner (132) pinned Brandon Turner in 1:40;

• Josh Luck (138) won by decision over Lane Smith, 5-3;

• Austin Gaebe (145) pinned Danny Nickelson in 2:32;

• Izeck Elbert (152) pinned James Spencer in 2:34;

• Kyle Summers (182) pinned Jordan Beck in 2:48;

• Logan Baird (195) pinned Jarrett Harrison in 1:42; and

• Jared Rennick (220) pinned Jamie Myers in 1:29.

Parker Neptune (113) and Matt Pecka (285) both won by forfeit.

“Cody Hey doesn’t have too many losses in the last month-in-a-half. He’s improved and has a lot of confidence. That’s what happens when he goes against Parker every day. They push each other,” Ohm said. “It’s exciting to get Jared Rennick back. We’re counting on a lot of points from him at state. We just have to make sure he stays healthy.”

In addition to Voyles, Pacific’s other winners in contested matches were:

• Josh Franek (120) pinned Jonathan Kelpe in 2:15; and

• Austin Repp (170) pinned Corey Kluesner in 57 seconds.

Both teams were without two of their better wrestlers. Washington’s Cole Hamai (145) and Pacific’s Joe Rind (132) both missed the meet.

“We’re more concerned right now about getting some mat time and not getting anyone hurt. We did what we were expected to do,” Ohm said. “We’re going to get healed up and try to win that second straight district title next week. Our goal is to take 14 wrestlers to state so we can do something there. I think we showed that it’s a realistic goal. We think we have a team plaque coming home with us from state.”
