Tahoma Wrestling

Bears take 4th Place at Tristate

The Tahoma Bears surprised some people this past weekend taking 4th place at the Tristate Tournament. Tahoma had 6 placers in this year’s tournament held at Northern Idaho College. Tahoma has a long standing tradition of success and placing at the tournament. This year’s highest placer was freshman, Justin Hoyle at the 98 pound weight class. 98 pounds is not a typical weight class, but since other state which were participating have the weight, they also have it in this tournament. The next highest placer was sophomore Nick Whitehead who took 3rd place. Nick had a great tournament, pinning a returning state champion and placer on his way to 3rd. Senior Adam Hokenson took 4th place. Adam, lost in the semifinals to a multiple time national champion from Hermiston, Oregon. Senior Kingston Suka had a great tournament and placed 8th in the heavyweight classification.  Sophomore Justin Sipila was the team’s final placer taking 6th place in a loaded weight class. The Bears will next compete at the SPSL Championships on January 1st and 2nd at Auburn High School.

Auburn Invite

The Tahoma Wrestling Team started off the season with the Auburn Invite. Although down a few wrestlers, the Bears managed to win the tournament by 20 points with host Auburn, taking 2nd place. This was a great opening tournament which allowed the wrestlers to gage where they are as well as what they need to work on. Next up, Kentridge on Wednesday night  12/10.
