Hatchets grapple past Forest Park

WASHINGTON — Washington scored a 48-34 victory over Forest Park Tuesday during senior night at Lena Dunn.

The match started at heavyweight with Eric Long receiving a forfeit. The Rangers picked up 2 forfeit wins at 106 and 113.

Levi Graber got the action started at 120 with a first period pin of Ranger Landon Fleck. The Rangers came back with a win at 126 when Winston Glenn scored a third period pin of Dakota Butler.

Edgardo Meza finished his match at 132 with a pin of Phiilip Rogier. The Rangers rolled off 2 straight wins when Keith Hurst defeated junior Isaac Drew, 14-2, and Connor Bolte pinned Pancake. The teams traded wins in the next two matches as junior Ritchie Osha pinned Tyler Recker and Ranger Leighton Fleck pinned Wilbur Hernandez.

The Hatchets ended the match with four wins for the victory, as Logan Hill, Aaron Cissell, Edwrin Revolorio and Kirk Crecelius all won by forfeit. The win put the Hatchets season record at 11-6 as they go into a near three-week break without matches.

"We don¹t wrestle again until Dec. 28 when we go to the Scottsburg two-day tourney.  We really need this break," Washington coach John Thompson said.

"We've had injuries, illness, kids quit, the list goes on and on. We can take this time to heal our wounds, refocus, and move forward into the second half of the season." The Washington Hatchets wrestling team honored eight seniors on Tuesday.

The were, Graber, Butler, Blake Harner, Pancake, Hernandez, Cissell, Jon Honaker, and manager Becca Criswell.

"I want to thank the seniors for their years of hard work and help building this program.  Graber, Butler, Pancake, Cissell, and Honaker have all been with program for four seasons and have laid the foundation for the future of this program.  I'm glad they won their last home match of their career, it was a nice send off."  Heading into the break, Levi Graber leads the team with a 15-2 individual record, followed by Cissell and Osha both at 14-3. Osha and Revolorio lead the team with 11 pins each with Crecelius at nine.
