WR girls second in Kelso Invitational

Payton Stround and Claire DiCugno both placed first in their weight classes.

There were 96 teams and roughly 600 wrestlers at last weekend’s Kelso Invitational, so it was an impressive showing by the White River High girls who placed second in the crowded field.

The Rivergirls were paced by a pair of individual champions. Payton Stround bested the field for a title at 120 pounds and Claire DiCugno matched that championship performance at 125.

Two other White River wrestlers advanced to place third, Rachel Poussier at 130 pounds and Jalia Williams at 135.

WHITE RIVER BOYS

White River’s boys traveled south down Interstate 5 for the Bearcat Invitational, hosted by W.F. West High School in Chehalis.

Four Hornets placed in the top four in their weight classes, headed by Klein Carter. He took the championship at 160 pounds, defeating Tommy Cruz of Tillamook, Oregon, in finals.

Also making his way to the finals, but placing second, was 106-pounder Cooper Reeves. In the title match, he was pinned by Bracen Nash of Ridgefield.

Others near the top of the field were Brendan McBride, third at 113 pounds, and Johnny McBride, fourth at 182.
