A snowy trip over Stevens Pass to Sultan for the Sky Valley Invitational awarded the Goat Wrestling Team with a third place finish against the 12 teams who braved the snow, wind and rain.


“We placed six finalists and one third place finish,” reported Coach Jay McGuffin. Champions at the tournament were Dillon Parker (119 lbs.) in a 10-2 decision; Gage Schmidt (140 lbs) in a 6-2 decision; and Jose Garcia (145 lbs) in a 12-2 decision.


Second place finishes went to Luis Rodriguez (112 lbs) who lost by pin; Davey Anderson (189 lbs) who lost in a 6-2 decision after pinning all of his previous opponents; and Sean Gervais (215 lbs) who lost by pin.. Hank Burton came through the back door to place third with two pins and superior decision.


“Overall it was a solid day, but we have some things to work on,” said McGuffin. “Luckily, the post season doesn’t begin for another three weeks.”
