WRHS wrestlers impress at Bucks Bag duals

Big meet, bunch of wins

Wood River High School wrestlers tucked a bunch of matches under their belts during the Buck's Bags Dual Tournament at Boise’s Capital High School Friday and Saturday.

Seniors Storm Anderson (6-0, 9-0 season) at 170 pounds and Thomas Heiden (6-0, 9-0) at 182 pounds were Wood River’s unbeaten wrestlers covering six separate dual meets at Capital.

In all, Wood River went 4-2 in its six duals—running off four straight wins 51-27 over Capital, 59-30 over Preston, 49-30 over Hillcrest of Idaho Falls and 39-30 over Borah of Boise.

Wood River dropped its opener 59-16 to eventual tournament runner-up Centennial of Boise, then narrowly lost 48-40 to Skyline of Idaho Falls in its final dual of the weekend.

Coach Shawn Huntington said, “We had a great tournament. We went 3-1 in our pod with the only loss to Centennial. After the Centennial loss we bounced back and beat Capital, Preston and Hillcrest.

“We then wrestled Borah and won that match as well. We finished the tourney by taking on Skyline. We lost to Skyline by eight points after giving them 12 forfeit points. I thought the guys did a great job.”

The Wolverines with just one weekend loss were Ryan Anderson (5-1, 7-1 overall) at 106, Cooper Bailey (5-1, 6-2) and Tommy Bailey (5-1, 7-1).

Losing just twice were Kaleb Guisasola (4-2, 5-3 overall) at 113 pounds, Kyle Clark (4-2, 5-3) and Chris Carnes (4-2, 6-2). Recording their first varsity wins of the season were Colby Castle at 98 and Jake Halopoff at 145.
