Hatchets fall at Princeton Invitational

PRINCETON — The Washington wrestling team finished with a 1-4 record at the Princeton Invitational against several Big 8 conference opponents.

The Hatchets lone win was against Mt. Carmel, accompanied by narrow losses to Vincennes Lincoln and the host Princeton.

The team also lost matches to Boonville and overall team champions Mt. Vernon.

Senior Ritchie Osha (152 lbs) was the lone Hatchet to post a perfect 5-0 record in action. Three wrestlers went 4-1 on the day — junior Ryan Koerner (126 lbs), senior Isaac Drew (138 lbs) and sophomore Jake Owens (170 lbs). Also with winning records were senior Dillon Brower (145 lbs) and senior Edrwin Revolorio (195 lbs). In junior varsity competition, senior Hollis Truelove (160 lbs) went 2-0.

“We had to jumble our lineup a bit due to some weight issues,” said Washington coach John Thompson. “The problem was we were not allowed to practice for a week because of all the snow and ice. When you can’t get in the room and at least condition, it is very difficult to keep your weight in check. I knew we would have some struggles, we had a few kids who were making their varsity debuts in very tough weight classes.

However, we had some great individual success, and I feel that when the conference tournament comes around we will be right in the thick of things.”

Osha stood out to Thompson as he led by example Saturday while earning a team-best five wins, and he’s confident the team will continue to improve as they get more time to practice and gain experience on the varsity level.

“(Ritchie) Osha looked solid going undefeated,” Thompson said. “He wrestled smart and stayed aggressive. Koerner, Drew, and Owens all lost very close matches.

“One thing goes a little different and I would be talking about have four undefeated wrestlers on the day. The positive sign for me is that all our mistakes can easily be corrected. We just need to get back in the wrestling room and work on getting better with our technique and conditioning. As long as we show good work ethic and positive attitudes, we will keep improving.”
