Hailey wrestlers (2-0) rally past Century 45-30

Tri-meet success at Kimberly

It was a successful season-opening trip to Kimberly Wednesday for the Wood River High School wrestling team.

Coach Shawn Huntington's 4A Wolverines (2-0 in duals) defeated 4A Century of Pocatello 45-30 and overwhelmed 3A Kimberly 56-18. Century won the other dual meet 66-18 over Kimberly.

Huntington said, "A much-improved Century team got out to an early lead and were ahead by three points with four matches left. Then our lower-weight guys took over. Kaleb Guisasola tied it 30-30, followed by pins by Tim Boyle and Cooper Bailey, and a decision by Andrew Beck for the victory."

Wood River was strong in the lower weights, winning seven of the eight weight classes from 106-152. It was a competitive meet with Century, 14 of the 15 weight classes being contested. The Wolverines recorded five pins plus a major decision and a technical fall.

Those with pins against Century were Boyle at 113 pounds, Cooper Bailey 120, Zach Brown 152, Storm Anderson 170 and Auden Ruhter 285. Tommy Bailey added a technical fall at 145 and Jared Anderson a major decision at 132. Decision winners were Guisasola at 106 and Beck at 126.

About the Kimberly match, Huntington said, "Kimberly had some tough lower-weight wrestlers but they were riddled with forfeits (4) and were no match for our middle weights.

"We started the match with six straight wins by Kyle Clark (138), Tommy Bailey (145), Zach Brown (152), JR Hill (160), Storm Anderson (170) and Thomas Heiden (185)."

Forfeit winners for Wood River were Jeremiah Linderman (220), Ruhter (285), Guisasola (106) and Boyle (113). Beck had a decision at 126 pounds.

Wood River travels to the two-day Bucks Bags varsity tournament at Boise's Capital High today, Friday at 3 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 10 at 9 a.m.
