Wrestler of the Week

Week 1
Ramon won the Ki-Be invite at 135 lbs and recorded three pins in the process. Ramon's 24 team points led the team to the championship.

Week 2
Sergio helped the team to a victory over East Valley with a pin and ended the week with a championship at the John Segle Tournament.

Week 3
Josh finished 5th at the inagural Hanford Winter Cup and followed that up with an impressive 4th place finish at the 21 team Royal Christmas Tourney.

Week 4
Bobby defeated Jesus Gonzalez of Wapato 8-2. Jesus had finished ahead of Bobby at the Hanford Winter Cup, finishing 2nd to Bobby's 3rd. Bobby is currently ranked 4th in the Mid-Columbia by the TC Herald.

Week 5
Ale won his 19th career tournament during the week, a school record. He also moved into 2nd on the all-time win list with 120 and became the fourth wrestler in Ki-Be history to record 40 career pins.

Week 6
Barry helped the Bears defeat the Grandview Greyhounds with an inspired 12-10, overtime win. The match included 5 takedowns by Barry, including the winning takedown at the whistle in overtime.

Week 7
Jesse recorded two pins against Naches and Goldendale. He has won 19 matches this year which is second on the team. Jesse's double leg is devastating to his opponents.

Joey put on a great perfomance at the South District meet with a pin and a win by injury default after he had his opponent on his back. But the most impressive match was his 8-2 domination of Johnny Martinez of Othello. Joey also had a feature article in the Tri-City Herald. Look for big things from Joey at State this year.

Josh Corke upset Guadalupe Montes 10-6 at the Regional tournament on his way to placing 4th. State experience as a freshman is very improtant if Josh plans on winning the state title in his career. A few state wins will also help Josh gain some confidence, though he doesn't seem to be short of confidence.

Ale became the schools 2nd 3-timer. His semifinal pin against Jace Wilkins of Stevenson also made him the alltime pin leader at Ki-Be with 47. His finals win against Stephens was his 36th post-season win, breaking Travis Knutson's record of 35. Ale will be missed next year, it was a great three year run.


Wrestler of the Month

Ale Started the month with a championship at the Ki-Be invite and extended his win streak to 80 before falling 1-0 to Tommy Owen, a two time state champion from 4A school University, at the Tri-State tourney. Ale finished third at Tri-State and avenged his only loss in the last three years by going 6-0 with 3 pins and 1 tech fall in winning the Winter Cup and the Royal Christmas Tourney. Ale is currently 115-8 in his career, just 9 wins away from the Ki-Be all time record.

Angel was 5-1 this month with 2 pins and placed 2nd at the Grandview Classic. Angel is currently 18-7 this year and has 49 career wins for the Bears. His other tournament finishes this year include a 1st at the John Segle Tournament, a 2nd at the Ki-Be Invite and 4th place finishes at the Hanford Winter Cup and the Royal Invite. Angel seems ready to make his four years of highschool wrestling pay off with a trip to state.

Sergio was 10-3 during the post-season. In taking 5th at State, Sergio defeated two wrestlers who had previously beaten him. First it was Jon Limbeck of Cashmere. Limbeck had defeated Sergio 5-0 at regionals, but Sergio pulled an upset on Limbeck at state with an overtime head and arm. Jason Nees of Lakeside had pinned Sergio in the quarterfinals at state, but Sergio won the rematch in dominating style 6-1 for 5th place.
