Middle School Wrestling
At Kellogg Middle School
Feb 15, 2017
Einstein 66 - Kellogg 44
Just before Shorecrest and Shorewood send their wrestlers down to the Tacoma Dome for the High School State Tournament the middle school wrestling season kicked off at Kellogg Middle School.
It was a little less polished than usual due to missing practice to snow days this year but there was no lack of heart. Kellogg stormed out to a commanding 23 point lead after the first four weight classes.
Rawan Schweedler and Carson Christensen pinned their cross-town rivals while Aiden Didio added a technical fall posting a 15-0 victory.
Einstein wrestlers clawed back into the match with three consecutive pins from Marcus Turner, Josh Fahey, and Junior Shirai bringing the score to 18-23 with Kellogg in the lead.
Trading of forfeits between the teams from 123 lbs up to 148 pounds left the match at 36-35, Einstein gaining a slight edge.
Two more victories over Einstein wrestlers wasn't enough to hold off Einstein's anchor weights. Pins from 218 pounder Taejin Thongdee and 248 pounder Tom Bert sealed the victory for the Tigers.
