EHS WRESTLING: Hornets’ dream season keeps rolling

Enumclaw High waltzed through Saturday’s Dream Duals Tournament in Spokane with a 41-19 win over host East Valley of Spokane, a 69-12 victory over the Sedro Woolley All-Stars and a 40-22 victory over North Central.

At 3-0, the Hornets topped the five other 3A teams at the 22-team dual-match event. North Central of Spokane and Union finished behind EHS, followed by East Valley, Bellevue and the All-Stars.

Against East Valley, the Hornets got pins from Lucas Somera and D.J. Qualls, a technical fall from Hunter File, a major decision from Kyle Young and decisions from Steven Knapp, Colton Malek, Kario Wallin, Josh Musick, Jared Paul, Chase Mitchell and Cole Snider.

It was a pinfest for EHS against the All-Stars with Paul, File, Somera, Mitchell, Musick, Wallin, Malek and Knapp all picking up falls. Snider added five points with a technical fall and Kyle Young chipped in four with a major decision. Jeff Witse won his match after his opponent was disqualified and Qualls earned a win when his opponent pulled out with an injury.

In the Hornets’ win over North Center, Paul, Musick, Wallin and Knapp provided the pin power with additional points, by decision, from Bradley Young, Snider, File and Mitchell.

The Dream Dual title was icing on the cake that started with a 55-14 South Puget Sound League 3A victory over fourth-ranked Bonney Lake Jan. 20 and a league win, the Hornets’ 31st straight, over Franklin Pierce Thursday.
