Washington concluded its regular season on the wrestling mat with three individual champions and a second-place team finish last Saturday at the Seckman Tournament.

Seckman won the team title with 191.5 points. Washington was second in the 13-team field with 166 points, edging third-place Jefferson City with 164.5.

St. Charles West placed fourth with 130 points followed by SLUH (100.5), Mehlville (100), Ritenour (89), CBC (86.5), Rockwood Summit (82), Pattonville (55), Affton (24), Seckman JV (23) and St. Charles (18).

“As a team, it was nice to continue to finish in the top three. With our second-place finish, we now have finished in the top three in every meet we have entered,” said Washington Head Coach Josh Ohm. “Along with a 14-5 dual meet record, we have a lot to be proud of this season.”

Capturing individual titles for the Blue Jays were Nicholas Solter, Cole Hamai and Kyle Summers.

Solter took the 126-pound title, defeating Rockwood Summit’s Jason Smith in the finals.

“Nicholas is still recovering from being a little sick, so he did what he needed to do to get the wins,” Ohm said. “We are focused right now on him just feeling better and getting back to where we feel he is at his best.”

Hamai claimed the 138-pound crown, defeating Affton’s Jake Lewis in the finals.

“Cole wrestled a good meet,” Ohm said. “He pinned all four of his guys and is looking very tough at the right time.”

Hamai (45-3) also set a new school record for most wins in a single season by a junior. The old record was held by Spencer Baird with 40.

Summers won the 170-pound title, defeating St. Charles West’s Blake Rugraff in the finals.

“Kyle is improving with each match,” Ohm said. “It was hard for him to come back after the injury and was off to a slow start. But he is wrestling his best right now. We really think he will continue to improve over the course of the next two weeks.”

Reaching the finals and settling for second-place honors for Washington was Cody Summers.

Competing at 132 pounds, Summers lost in the finals to Seckman’s Brock Wingbermuehle, the defending 120-pound champion in Class 4.

Washington’s third-place finishers were Parker Neptune and Logan Baird.

Neptune (113) defeated Mehlville’s Brandon Steffe in the third-place match.

Baird (195) won the third-place contest over St. Charles West’s Andelson Perez.

Caleb Summers and Jacob Kliethermes of the Blue Jays both earned fourth-place honors.

Summers (160) lost to Seckman’s Kaleb Cheek in the third-place match.

“Caleb was by far in the toughest bracket, and he did a good job to come through and get fourth,” Ohm said. “It seems like each week, 160 has been the toughest bracket and he has done a great job. Because of that, he will be more prepared for the next two weeks than a lot of other people.”

Kliethermes (220) lost to SLUH’s Max Kavy in the third-place contest.

Matt Pecka finished in fifth place for Washington.

Pecka (285) won the fifth-place match over Seckman’s Otto Pfneisel.

Also wrestling for Washington were Izeck Elbert (145), Jake Engemann (152) and Jeremy Monehan (182). Elbert and Monehan both had one win. The Blue Jays were open at 106 and 120.

Washington wrestles Friday and Saturday at the Class 3 District 1 Tournament at the Farmington Civic Center.

Three rounds are scheduled for Friday with the first round taking place at 6 p.m.

First-round wrestlebacks are set for 7 p.m. with the quarterfinals scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

Wrestling resumes Saturday at 10 a.m. with the second round of wrestlebacks.

The championship and third-place matches are scheduled to take place somewhere around 5 p.m., but could vary based upon how fast the other rounds are concluded.

“We still have quite a bit to work on and we will spend the next few practices doing everything we can to be prepared for districts,” Ohm said. “As long as we go in with confidence and are prepared to wrestle six minutes each time we step on the mat, we will finish this season strong.”
