White River took eight wrestlers Jan. 2 to the GK Greeley tournament, where a pair of Hornets emerged as champions.

The tourney, hosted by Graham-Kapowsin High School in Graham, attracted wrestlers from 19 schools throughout the region. With its limited crew, White River placed 11th in the field, scoring 103.5 team points.

Leading the way for the Hornets were freshman Caleb Evanger and sophomore Gage Sabin, each earning tournament championships.

Evanger won four matches on his way to the title at 106 pounds, pinning Aaron Stogsdill of Rogers High, Easton Meadow from Emerald Ridge and Noah Maes from Rogers to reach the finals. In the final pairing, Evanger dominated Kentridge High’s Griffin Walden to earn a 17-1 technical fall.

Sabin, competing at 132 pounds, received a first-round bye. He then pinned Ryan Patterson from Eastlake and Kayla Trujillo from Eatonville to reach the finals. For the title, he took a 15-14 decision over Sumner’s Ethan Merrifield.

Other Hornet wrestlers in the field included Carson Grimm (195 pounds) and Ethan Barr (126), each placing fourth. Chase Campbell (152) and Austin Garner (220) each were two-time winners; also competing were Christopher Bowen, who won a match at 182, and Logan Lisherness at 170 pounds.
