Enumclaw High nets wrestling title at White River tournament

Success is nothing new to the Enumclaw High wrestling program, which kicked off the 2012 season in fine style by winning the White River Classic.

Enumclaw totaled 187.5 points to coast past second-place Graham-Kapowsin’s 168. Nearby Bonney Lake placed fourth in the team standings and host white River wound up 12th in the 16-team field.

Enumclaw captured the team title by placing four wrestlers in the championship round and landing three first-place medals. Hunter Haney pinned two opponents at 113 pounds before earning a 9-7 decision over Sunnyside’s Homer Romero; Lucas Somera picked up an easy decision and a pin before defeating Graham-Kapowsin’s Ian Steen in the 152-pound finals; and Ryan Anderson charged to two pins and a 12-1 technical fall before beating Anthony Allred of Yelm for the championship at 170 pounds.

Enumclaw’s 132-pounder, Tyke Reid, battled his way to the finals on the strength of a pin and an overtime decision, then fell to G-K’s Taylor Salzberg to claim second-place honors.

White River’s best finish was turned in by Chris Skinner at 195 pounds. After two victories, Skinner found himself in the finals, where he lost 8-3 to Graham-Kapowsin’s Joe Gomez.
