Wrestling Roundup: Tigers Fall in Local Dual


In a couple of local wrestling duals, the Centralia boys fell to Tumwater Tuesday night, 45-36, while the Rochester boys fell at home to Aberdeen, 63-18. 

Centralia won most of the matches it competed in Tuesday night against the T-Birds, but had holes in five weight classes, handing Tumwater 30 free points. 

Tiger wrestlers Antonio Garcia (126), Antonio Campos (132), Alika Vargas (182), Daniel Cirsneros (195), Eddie Mojica (220), and Willy Stinkeaway (285) all picked up wins on the mat. 

“Our wrestlers who are on the mat are clearly making improvements,” Centralia coach Scott Phillips said. “We have had two duals in a row that we should have won, but lost due to not filling our lineup and giving up forfeits.” 

The Tigers host their final dual of the season against Shelton Wednesday. 

Meanwhile, Rochester fell decisively to the Bobcats, but picked up wins from Jaden Nichols (285) and Nolan Hudson, with Rochester coach Michael Morales giving kudos to Hudson for a strong day of wrestling. 

The Warriors take on Black Hills on Thursday.
