MARYSVILLE The Eagles wrestling team finished 10th out of 17 teams Saturday, Jan. 13, at the M-PHS Premier wrestling tournament with 88 points.
The tournament, which featured teams from as far away as Moses Lake and Omak, featured five Arlington wrestlers that finished in the top 5 of their respective weight classes.
Steven White (130-lb,) and Jordan Anderson (171-lb.) both finished in third place while j Jesse Bosley (145-lb.), Chris Myers (152-lb.) and Danny Pierce (189-lb.) claimed fifth-place finishes.
Steven White (130-lb.) began the day with a pin over Lucas Howard of Monroe and then climbed through the consolation round to a third-place finish.
After being pinned by Thomas Pfeiffer of Moses Lake White rebounded to pin Ryan Swafford of Snohomish.
Continuing his success, he pinned Spencer Baebler of Peninsula and Long Bui of Mariner for a third-place finish.
First-year coach Doug Byers said he was pleased with the performance of White.
In the semifinals he was pinned by a guy from Moses Lake (Pfeiffer), but responded to pin his next opponent from Snohomish. That shows me a lot about his character and how he responds to adversity.
Anderson knocked off neighboring Josh Gwyther of Lakewood with a first-round pin and then defeated Aaron Johnson of Peninsula 13-4 before falling to Cameron Stewart of Stanwood.
In the consolation round, Anderson pinned Brad Vongphrachanh of Mariner for his final victory of the afternoon.
Jordan Anderson did a great job to finish third. We are really looking forward to his rematch against the Stanwood kid (Stewart), Byers said.
Bosley began the day on a losing note with an 8-3 setback to Keaton Hartzell of Stanwood.
In the consolation round, Bosley pinned Jordan Erlenbach of Burlington-Edison, won by injury default over Kyle Coonan of Peninsula, triumphed over Chase Vasquez of Monroe 8-6 and then fell short against Hartzell for the second time, 4-0.
Byers said he is hoping that Bosley is able to reverse the results when AHS faces Stanwood Tuesday, Jan. 23 at home.
Myers started off the tournament with back-to-back pins over Ben Ullrich of Stanwood and Corey Hendrickson of Mariner.
Myers then suffered consecutive losses to Zach Riggle of Omak and Jesse Masten of M-P to finish in fifth-place.
Pierce also began on a roll with back-to-back pins before coming up short en route to a fifth place finish.
He pinned Tyson Williams of Omak and James Roan of M-P, but his tank ran dry as he was on the other side of a pin from Barry Wise of Burlington-Edison.
