Washington’s dual wrestling victory Thursday at Ft. Zumwalt North was not a surprise, but there still was a reason to celebrate.

The Blue Jays’ 53-15 win was the first time Washington wrestling has defeated Ft. Zumwalt North in a dual meet since joining the Gateway Athletic Conference in the 2002-03 school year.

“It was great to finally beat them,” said Washington Head Coach Josh Ohm. “Hopefully that continues and we can get Farmington next week, another team we have never beaten since I’ve been here.”

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

Winning contested matches for the Blue Jays were:

• Cody Gardner (120) pinned Trenton Jaco in 4:13;

• Cody Summers (132) pinned Andy Jetton in 2:45;

• Josh Luck (138) won by major decision over Collin Overkamp, 14-4;

• Izeck Elbert (145) won by decision over Walker Cunningham, 4-0;

• Spencer Baird (152) pinned Justin Manzella in 2:27;

• Caleb Summers (160) won by major decision over Luke Sammelmann, 11-3;

• Jeremy Monehan (182) won by decision over Nathan Williams, 6-2.

• Logan Baird (195) pinned Evan Miller in 2:17;

• Jacob Kliethermes (220) won by decision over Mason Seeger, 7-2.

Parker Neptune (113) and Nicholas Solter (126) both won by forfeit.

Kyle Summers (170) lost by decision, 3-0. Cole Fregalette (106) was pinned.

The Blue Jays were open at 285.

“I was very pleased with the way we came out ready to wrestle,” he said. “We controlled the pace of every match and really worked to score in the bonus. We have to figure out a way to get healthy all at the same time, so we can put together 14 varsity kids at one time.”

The ultimate goal is to prepare for the district tournament and beyond.

“We are going to be putting out a new lineup every week from now until districts to keep an eye on the number of matches and to get healthy at the right time,” Ohm said. “It’s nice to be in a position where we can depend on JV kids in certain places to step up and get the wins for us in our duals.”
