Mule wrestlers competed
Mule Wrestlers attended the Castle Rock tournament January 4; this was by far the toughest tournament yet. There were 16 teams with full 16 man brackets.
At 132-lbs., Luke Stacey won 5th place. Luke’s first opponent was from Royal and he won the match by pin in round two. The second match was a Rainier wrestler and was a win with a pin in the third round. Luke then lost by technical fall to Forks which dropped him down into the consolation bracket. The last match was a loss to an Ilwaco opponent by points 6-4.
At 152-lbs., Mason Mackey received 4th place. Match one was a bye. Second match was a loss to a Forks wrestler by points 5-4 which moved him down to consolations. Match three was a win by pin in round three against Tenino.The last match was for 4th place against Highland and was a win by points 8-7. (3rd/5th wrestled off and 4th/6th wrestled because of the way the brackets were set up).
Alex Johnson at 145-lbs., and Trystan Mendez at 182-lbs., also wrestled at the tournament. They both had a loss for their first matches and then wins for their second matches. The third matches were losses which took them out of the tournament.
