Greyhounds on to State
Written by Kameron Kinkade
On February 11th, the Greyhound wrestling team went to Ellensburg for their regional wrestling tournament. Although none of the Pullman alternates were able to enter in the tourney, the three wrestlers who did qualify did extremely well. Both seniors, Lenon Rock and Gabe Jones, placed in the top three, and Kiran Srikanth even managed to get all the way to the championship match. Despite an impressive performance, he lost 4-2 and placed second overall at the 145 lb weight class. The wrestlers leave on Thursday, February 16th for the state wrestling tournament. Good luck Greyhounds!
2nd Place - Kiran Srikanth 3rd Place - Gabe Jones (152) - Lenon Rock (195)

2nd Place - Gabe Jones (152) and Lennon Rock (195)
3rd Place (Alternates) - Tyler Engebretson (106), Cole Dahmen (132), and Dietrik Mueller (220)
Zach Dahmen (113), Isaiah Acosta (126), and Kameron Kinkade (170) also had strong outings, all finishing fourth in their respective weight classes. However, they did not qualify for Regionals.
