White River wins three at Olympic Duals

Jack Ervien, Gabe Hawthorne, and Weston Lyver all saw good wins.

The White River High boys’ wrestling team won three of four matches during the competitive Olympic Duals, staged Saturday at the Kitsap Pavilion in Bremerton.

The Hornets’ only loss was at the hands of a tough crew from Yelm. The Tornadoes left the mat on the winning side of a 42-34 score. In other tourney matches, White River downed Bremerton 58-15, doubled up Kent-Meridian 52-26 and edged the Class 4A Curtis Vikings 37-36.

Among the Hornet standouts were Jack Ervien and Weston Lyver, both going undefeated in their four matches. Ervien’s day included two pins and a major decision at 170 pounds while Lyver, at 152 pounds, chalked up three wins by fall.

White River’s Gabe Hawthorne (145) dropped his match against Yelm but routed three other foes, two by pin and one by major decision. Nate Moore (160) registered two pins and a decision, plus a forfeit victory. Max Wheeler (182) was on the mat twice, winning both by pin and adding two by forfeit.
