The Vashon wrestling team blasted the talented 2A Washington Patriots 51-28 in a lopsided dual meet on Thursday.
The Pirate senior leaders Geran Webb, Graeme Britz and Sam Chapman quickly pinned their unranked opponents.
Dominik Stemer beat one of Washington High School’s best grapplers 12-10 in an exciting seesaw battle.
Impressive as these matches were, Assistant Coach Per-Lars Blomgren said he was prouder of the efforts of the team’s less-experienced wrestlers.
Sjors Steneker applied a deadly cradle for his fall.
In facing the Patriots’ team captain, Maximo Mandl’s sheer determination got him the pin.
Cole Devereau’s superior conditioning allowed him to get a pin.
Robert Easton’s pin easily followed his double leg takedown.
Jon Michael Monroe fought hard and also joined the Vashon pin-fest.
This dual meet marked Madeleine Wolczko’s return to girls’ action after a lingering illness. She looked dominant and was awarded a technical fall at the end of the second period.
Iris Spring pinned her opponent at 4:25.
The Pirates next face Cascade Christian at the Vashon High School gym tomorrow.
— Marian Easton is the mother of Pirate wrestler Robert Easton.
