Wrestling Excels at State
The Pullman Greyhound Wrestling Team earned a 19th place finish at the AA State Wrestling Tournament at the Tacoma Dome last weekend. The Greyhounds entered three wrestlers in the tournament. Kiran Srikanth, a sophomore at 145 pounds, defeated Tanner Lees from Washougal 6-5 to earn a 3rd place finish. Lennon Rock, a senior at 195 pounds, defeated Jonavan Omar from Highline with a pin to earn a 7th place finish. Gabe Jones, a senior at 152 pounds, earned points for the team with one win. Srikanth and Rock are the first wrestlers to place at the state tournament for the Greyhounds in 7 years.
Greyhounds on to State
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)
