Tiger wrestlers 7th at Royal

ROYAL CITY – Tonasket’s wrestling team took seventh-place at Royal on Saturday, Dec. 29, thanks partly to the tough nature of the tournament, but also to the fact that the Tigers were missing starters Jeffrey Stedtfeld, Austin Booker and Austin Knowlton.

Despite not having anyone reach the finals, six Tigers only had one loss on the day (most went 3-1) and three went 2-2.

John Rawley earned the top finish with a third-place showing at 220.

Fourth place finishers included Rade Pilkinton (106), Collin Aitcheson (120), Dalton Wahl (132), Quinn Mirick (152) and Tanner Good (285).

Frank Holfeltz (195) claimed fifth place, while taking sixth were Trevor Peterson (113) and Dyllan Walton (126). Derek Rimestad and Jorge Juarez also competed.

The Tigers next wrestle at Warden on Saturday, Jan. 5.
