Two Mount Si wrestlers defeated all comers in their classes in the Best of the West tournament, held Friday and Saturday, Dec. 20 and 21, at Pasco High School.

Eli Clure pinned two opponents and won a majority decision over a third before beating West Salem's Jeb Powell in the 120-pound class for the championship.

At 145, Ryley Absher won a 10-0 decision over Clarkston wrestler Zach Freeman to take the title. He had wracked up three pins over opponents on the way.

Mason Marenco placed fourth in the 132-pound division, just beating out fellow Wildcat Jack Hamerly. As a team, the Wildcats finished fifth out of 24 teams.

Henry Foster, Gunnar Harrison, Andrew Harris and Cameron McLain also wrestled.
