WHS ends season at semistate

The Washington wrestling team finished its season Saturday at Semistate at Evansville at the Ford Center as the six remaining wrestlers did not advance to the state finals.

Four wrestlers —126 lb junior Ryan Koerner, 132 lb senior Edgardo Meza, 138 lb Isaac Drew and 170 lb sophomore Jake Owens all lost their first round matches. Seniors Ritchie Osha (160 lb) and Edrwin Revolorio (195 lb) won their first matches, but lost their next matches, falling one win short of the state finals.

“We came into this tourney with high expectations, but unfortunately we couldn’t get the job done,” said Washington coach John Thompson. “When you get to this level, you need not only skills, but lots of luck. Even though we didn’t advance to state, I am very proud of the young men and all the hard work they put into the end of this season.”

The Hatchets say goodbye to their most productive senior class ever. The class ranks first in career dual meet wins in a four-year stretch, as well as pins and most regional and Semistate qualifiers. Meza and Osha were four time regional qualifiers and two time Semistate qualifiers, as was Drew. This season, Drew became just the second wrestler in school history to place in the Big 8 tourney all four years. Revolorio’s 71 wins over the last two seasons is second most in school history and Osha holds the career pin record with 78.

“This is the first group I coached from sixth grade to senior year,” Thompson said. “The four guys who were here from the beginning (Drew, Meza, Osha, and Revolorio) have put so much time and dedication into being the best they could be. This is the kind of group you will never be able to replace, the kind you want your future classes to model after. It was an honor to coach them. We have some amazing talent coming back — three regional qualifiers, two of which also were Semistate qualifiers, will be a great base to build on. They know we will be a young team next year as we graduate nine seniors, but I really feel that will just make our kids work harder because we want to keep getting better. The sky is the limit.”
