BHS wins big in 2018’s first wrestling outing

SEATTLE – The Bainbridge High varsity wrestling team went 2-for-2 at a recent doubleheader meet at Chief Sealth High, bagging a 36-34 win against the host school and an epic 48-18 win against West Seattle as well.

Against Sealth, BHS claimed five forfeit wins, while double forfeits negated the 182- and 285-pound brackets. It was enough of a lead so that despite the Spartans only actually winning one match, they emerged victorious.

In the 170-pound bout, BHS’ Clay Wren pinned Daniel McCoy in 1:49.

Sealth grapplers grabbed wins in the four other matches of the night’s first meet: Alisa Chin (113 pounds) pinned Garrett Swanson in 3:38; Aseel Ahmed (145) pinned Doug Takada in 30 seconds; Greg Avalos (160) claimed a 19-9 major decision against Nate Michaels; and Ismael Chavez (195) pinned Mac Schelbert in 5:51.

Against West Seattle, the island wrestlers saw more action.

Bainbridge claimed just three forfeit wins, and three double forfeits negated the 132-, 220- and 285-pound brackets.

In the 126-pound bout, BHS’ Indigo Weappa pinned Lake Burton in 3:23.

Bainbridge’s Ben Dunscobe (138) pinned Ryan Arik in five minutes flat, but then 145-pound Ale Morales claimed a win for West Seattle and pinned Doug Takada in 51 seconds.

In the 152-pound match, Clayton Marsh pinned WS’ Squanto Subejano in 3:31.

In the 160-pound bout, Nate Michaels pinned WS’ Keyradin Navito in just 23 seconds.

Dante Novito (WS, 170-pounds) pinned Clay Wren in 1:07, and, finally, and 195-pound heavyweight Myles Gionet claimed a 6-4 OT decision win against Bainbridge’s Mac Schelbert.

The Spartans next returned home to host Bishop Blanchet and Lakeside Thursday.

The annual Island Invitational Tournament is set to begin at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 13 at Bainbridge High School. Wrestlers from Kingston, Mountlake Terrace and Port Angeles are expected.
