SEATTLE – The Bainbridge varsity wrestling squad came up short twice during a recent away match, losing the first round 42-17 to Garfield High and 42-24 to host school Ingraham in the second.

In the first round, BHS managed to lock down several key pins, but were ultimately unable to accumulate enough points to turn the tide.

A double forfeit in the 106-pound bracket began the match, and Garfield claimed the 113-pound match through forfeit after that.

Cade Topham pinned Garfield’s Tamima Hamido in just 12 seconds for the first Spartan win of the night, locking up the 120-pound match.

Following suit, Jonathan Gallivan pinned Garfield’s Emilio Perella in 1:45 to claim the 126-pound win.

Bainbridge won again when Myron Butler pinned Natalie Wheeler in 50 seconds in the 132-pound match.

Garfield prevailed in the 138-pound bracket by forfeit.

In the 145-pound match, Garfield’s Michael Greenstock pinned Nate Michaels in 4:22, and then Bainbridge’s Clay Wren was pinned in 18 seconds by Jacob Madison in the 152-pound match.

Aaron Jumpa claimed an epic 5-0 decision win over Garfield’s Blake Snodgross in the 160-pound match and Liam Topham pinned Richard Wang in three minutes to secure the 170-pound win for BHS.

Garfield took the 182- and 195-pound brackets by forfeit, and a double forfeit negated the 220-pound match.

Finally, Garfield snuck in one more forfeit win in the 285-pound match.

In Round Two against Ingraham, the usual Spartan superstars were able to win certain weight classes but again the team found themselves bested as a whole by superior numbers.

Ingraham claimed the 106- and 113-pound matches by forfeit.

Then, in the 120-pound match, Cade Topham pinned Ingraham’s Kyler Kreuger in 5:26.

Gallivan then pinned Jack Langwell in 1:50 to claim the 126-pound bracket.

Ingraham’s Justin Kyle pinned Butler in 45 seconds to win the 132-pound match, and a double forfeit negated the 138-pound bracket.

Michaels was pinned in 30 seconds by Ingraham’s Riley Caulfield in 30 seconds in the 145-pound match, as was Wren, by Antoine Combs in 49 seconds, in the 152-pound bracket.

Jumpa claimed a win for BHS in the 160-pound match when he pinned Ingraham’s Joseph Lauder in just 24 seconds for a victory in the 160-pound match.

Liam Topham pinned Ingraham’s Aidan Baxter in 3:53 for a Spartan win in the 170-pound match as well.

Ingraham claimed the 182- and 220-pound matches by forfeit, and double forfeits negated the 195- and 285-pound matches.
