White River High’s wrestling team is off to Clover Park tonight, Wednesday, for a South Puget Sound League 3A match and then to Yelm for the Tornado Tournament Saturday. They enter both contests riding a wave of confidence after winning two out of three at their own Hahto Dual Tournament Saturday.

Madden pinned his foe in 1 minute, 49 seconds at 160 pounds. Joey Anderson rolled to a 30-second pin at 189. Chase Myers picked up a 56-second fall at 215.

Emerald Ridge put up more of a fight and edged the Hornets 37-33.

Pugmire chipped in with a 7-1 decision at 152, but Emerald Ridge answered with its own run for the narrow defeat.

Collecting a number of forfeits, the Hornets eased past Lakes 65-16. Gurule scored a pin in 1:29. Williams picked up a major decision, 20-6. Moore pinned his Lakes opponent at 2:17 and Pugmire also earned a pin, his coming at the 2:33 mark. Gino Russell, at 171 pounds, won 6-1. Anderson took his 189-pound Lakes opponent to the mat in 3:02 and Dave Meagher won a 4-1 decision at heavyweight.
