Wrestlers look ahead to GBC meet

Wednesday at Minico

    Wood River High School’s wrestling team put their final Great Basin Conference dual meet in the books Wednesday night at Jerome and is now looking forward to next week’s conference tournament.
    The six-school conference meet at Rupert’s Minico High School starts at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19. Four wres-tlers from each of the 15 weight classes will qualify from that meet for the State 4A tourna-ment Feb. 28 in Nampa.
    On Wednesday, Jerome won eight of the 15 weight classes by forfeit and earned a 72-9 dual meet win, yet the Wolverines battled hard in seven matches they wrestled—winning two.
    Three-time state qualifier and two-time district champion Cooper Bailey (35-4 season) captured a 1:37 pin over Jerome’s Brody Gibson at 132 pounds.
    Sophomore Ryan Anderson (25-9) worked hard and claimed a 6-5 decision over senior Eddy Ortega in a 120-pound clash of State 4A qualifiers from last February.
    Senior Kyle Clark (16-9) fell by 3:21 pin to Jerome’s Mike Whitaker at 160 pounds. Sophomore Colby Castle (19-10) dropped an 11-9 decision to Jerome’s Tyler Williams at 98, and junior Cameron Bingham (9-5) fell 4-3 to Jerome’s Austin Bobrowski at 145 pounds.
    Wolverines who were pinned were Riley Beck at 138 and James Thomas at 106 for Wood River.
