Spartans stomped 2x at dual wrestling loss

SEATTLE – Against both Roosevelt and Ballard, the Bainbridge Spartans were bested at a recent dual wrestling match. The varsity island squad was defeated first 33-30 by the Rough Riders, then 33-28 by the Beavers.

Against Roosevelt, Bainbridge scored three forfeit wins (double forfeits negated three weight classes).

The Spartans notched just two wins: Garrett Swanson (113 pounds) pinned Rei Ichikawa (no time recorded) and 138-pounder Ben Dunscombe pinned Logan Murphy in 5:46.

Defeats were more plentiful: Matthew Chung (126) claimed an 8-2 decision against Indigo Weappa, Nathan Bears (145) pinned Doug Takada in 3:31, Daniel Bryson-Benne (152) won by forfeit, Jayden Slonkiker (170) pinned Clay Wren in 5:30, and both 182-pounder Quinn Williamson and Hendrick Schellings won by forfeit.
