Area roundup: Team Washington finishes seventh in freestyle wrestling at Cadet National Duals

UPDATED: Sat., June 16, 2018

From staff reports

After finishing second in the country Thursday in the Greco-Roman portion of the Cadet National Duals, Spokane-loaded Team Washington placed seventh in freestyle Saturday.

The USA Wrestling event at the Spokane Convention Center concluded after Team Washington eased past Missouri, 60-19, in the seventh-place match. Comprised of the top 16-and-under wrestlers from around the state, Team Washington beat Illinois but dropped its next two duals to Oklahoma and eventual national champion Pennsylvania.

Team Washington went 4-0 on Friday to win its pool, finishing the freestyle tournament with a 6-2 overall record. In the Greco-Roman portion of the tournament, it finished 7-1.

Ky Haney (132 pounds, Mt. Spokane) went 3-0 and Braxton Mikesell (220 pounds, Central Valley) went 5-1 to lead the Spokane products in the freestyle tournament.

Three Team Washington wrestlers went undefeated in both Cadet National Duals tournaments this week, including Gage Cook (285, Yakima), Weston Lyver (160, White River) and Riley Van Scoy (160, Stanwood).

Spokane Shadow earn tie

Chase Reidt scored in the 39th minute for Spokane, but FCM Portland found a second-half goal as the Shadow played to a 1-1 draw Saturday at Spokane Falls Community College.

Reidt found the back of the net for a team-best sixth time this season.

The Shadow (3-0-4) and Portland (3-1-4) will take the field again Sunday at 1 p.m.
