Competing last Friday and Saturday at the Flyer Holiday Wrestling Tournament at Lindbergh High School, Washington placed fourth out of 21 teams and had three individual champions.

Parkway South claimed the team championship followed by Lee’s Summit West, Francis Howell and Washington.

Dual meets took place on Friday followed by bracket matches on Saturday.

The Blue Jays posted a 3-2 dual meet record on Friday.

• Washington defeated O’Fallon Christian, 78-6;

• Washington defeated Hazelwood East, 45-30; and

• Washington defeated Paducah Tilghman, Ky., 70-6.

The two losses were:

• Francis Howell defeated Washington, 41-24; and

• Marquette defeated Washington, 39-36.

“Once again, we got off to a slow start in the duals, but had a very solid day Saturday once we reached the brackets. We’ll use this week to address those concerns,” said Washington Head Coach Josh Ohm. “We have a lot to work on and improve at this point in the season. It’s very positive that we have yet to be beaten by any Class 3 teams.”

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

Solter (126 pounds) went 9-0 in the tournament, improving to 29-1 on the season.

“Nicholas had probably one of his best meets of his career,” Ohm said. “He had a couple of big wins and then wrestled a great match in the finals to beat an extremely tough Oakville kid.”

Hamai (145) posted a 9-0 tournament record, improving to 29-0 on the season.

“Cole once again ran through his bracket,” Ohm said. “The best thing about Cole is that he is improving every time he steps on the mat and always wants to get better.”

Summers (182) also went 9-0 in the tournament, improving to 26-0 on the season.

“Kyle wrestled very well over the weekend,” Ohm said. “Kyle has always been extremely tough on his feet, but he’s starting to really improve on the mat, which is going to make it very tough for anyone to wrestle with him.”

Matt Pecka (285) reached the finals and took second-place honors with an 8-1 record, improving to 25-4 on the season.

“Pecka did a great job to make it to the finals,” Ohm said. “He lost a very close match to one of the best heavyweights in Class 4.”

Logan Baird (195) took third-place honors with an 8-1 record, improving to 24-3 on the season. His one loss was in overtime in the semifinals.

Parker Neptune (113) claimed fifth-place honors. He had a 4-1 record during Friday’s dual meets.

Cody Hey (106) and Jeremy Monehan (160) both took sixth place in their respective weight classes.

Hey tied the school record for quickest pin, eight seconds, during the tournament.

Also competing in the tournament for Washington, but not placing, were Cole Fregalette (113), Joe Omer (120), Matt Garrison (132), Josh Luck (138), Austin Gaebe (138), Cory Kluesner (170) and Jacob Kliethermes (220). Kliethermes defaulted on the second day due to illness.

The Blue Jays were open at 152.

“Everyone was able to win at least two matches,” Ohm said. “We’ll use this week to rest up and really work to improve. We start the new year with an extremely tough week heading to Granite City and the GAC meet.”

Washington travels to Granite City, Ill., Jan. 9 and competes at the GAC Tournament Jan. 10-11 at Ft. Zumwalt North High School.
