Warrior wrestlers compete in two separate tournaments

Bethel Regional High School wrestlers traveled separately to compete in two different tournaments on Oct. 27 and 28.

Eight Lady Warrior varsity wrestlers went to Anchorage to compete in the annual Monster Bash Tournament.

A pair of freshman made it to the podium. Kayleigh Bell placed second at 114 pounds, and Riley Boney placed third at 138 pounds. Michelle Kilanak also placed third at 100 pounds.

Jordan Klejka got her first high school tournament win by pinning McKinley Reid of South Anchorage High School. The 120 pound senior’s record is currently 19-3.

In the 132 pound weight class, Isabel Lieb took first place. The senior stays undefeated for the season at 20-0.

As far as the boys wrestling team, they traveled to Nikiski High School to compete in the Top Dog Invite. As a team, the Warriors placed seventh.

Alvino Vasquez placed second in the 119 pounds weight class. Ellis Johnson placed third at 160 pounds, while Jacob Carmichael placed fourth at 215 pounds.

Currently, Carmichael is 13-5 on the season and Johnson is 14-5.

The next opportunity for both Warrior teams to compete will be at the Mountain City Christian Academy tournament, which starts Nov. 3. Most, if not all, of the top Division II wrestlers from the state will compete in that tournament.
