Garcia pinned Martinez in 2 minutes, 36 seconds. Senior takes third at Centralia tournament By EMILY HANSON emi/y@masoncoun corn Benny Olivas began Shelton's come- back in the Highclimbers' home wres- tling meet Dec. 11. The senior, wrestling at 160 pounds, entered his match knowing Shelton was down 30-18. He pinned his opponent. Then Irvin Garcia followed suit with a pin, but it wasn't enough as Wilson mustered four wins late in the dual match to defeat the Highclimbers 48-36. In 3 minutes, 42, Olivas brought the Highclimbers within six points of Wil- son. That's the time it took for him to pin Wilson senior Cyrus Volk. Then Garcia stepped onto the mat for the 170-pound match. Garcia pinned Wilson senior Dario Martinez in 2:36 to tie the match score 30-30. In the remaining four matches, Wil- son pinned three Highclimbers and for- feited one match to Shelton. "Irvin Garcia and Benny Olivas each earned impressive pins against qual- ity opponents," head coach Chris Lacy said. "We expected to win the Wilson dual, but knew they were an improving team." He said a couple of the matches didn't go as expected. "We had seven wrestlers compete in their first ever varsity dual meet and we were pleased with their efforts," Lacy said. "This was led by Quinn Ro- dius and Josiah Sears." Rodlus, a freshman, pinned Wil- son junior Chandler Krumins at 106 pounds in 3:31, while Sears, a sopho- more, pinned Wilson's Tanner Percival in 4:57. Every match during the meet was determined by pin. "Several of our veterans looked out- standing as well," Lacy added. The Wilson girls defeated Shelton 18-12 in five matches also determined by fall. Shelton senior Amy Gilliland pinned Wilson sophomore Laia Cabo-Martinez in 3:36, while Shelton junior Lindsey Corey pinned Wilson senior Winnie Wang in 3:33. "Girls wrestling is growing quickly across the state and our girls competed very well," Lacy said. "Amy Gilliland and Lindsey Corey each earned their first varsity pins." .... The boys and girls teams then com- peted Saturday at tournaments at Cen- tralia High School. Among the varsity boys, Olivas was the most successful. He went 4-1 for third place. "Benny's championships are coming soon," Lacy said. "He is wrestling at the top of his game and his intelligent, ag- gressive and physical style is going to pay dividends as we get farther into the season." Garcia went 3-2 for fifLh place, while junior Michael Hackler (182) and junior James Bragg (195) both went 2-2 for fifth place. Senior Alexandra Ruiz-Rivas was the only Shelton varsity girl to win a match at the tournament. She compet- ed at 135 pounds.
