Kitsap wrestlers grab 13 titles at North Mason Classic

BELFAIR — While many teams were off in the days preceding Christmas, Kitsap grapplers were hitting the mats at the annual North Mason Classic.

Olympic was the top scoring team among the six Kitsap schools that participated, finishing in third place with 104 behind champion Aberdeen and host school North Mason. Right behind was Klahowya in fourth place, followed by North Kitsap in seventh, Bremerton in eighth, Central Kitsap in 10th and Kingston in 17th.

The Trojans were led by Anjelo Pangelinan’s first place finish at 113 pounds. Tim Porter (132) and Robert Virgil (170) also took second for Olympic.

North Kitsap received a pair of first place finishes from Robert Gomez (132) and Nouh Hammou (195). Hayden Steele won the 138-pound class for Klahowya and Bremerton’s Luis Clemen was the top wrestler at 145.

Speaking of Vikings, Holly Beaudoin was one of eight local champions in the girls tournament, as was teammate Elise Scrafford. Naelani Carter-Rasor won the 142-151 weight class for Central Kitsap, while Christ Sindel of Kingston took first at 152-160 and Olympic’s Leslie Espinosa was No. 1 at 169-176.

The South Kitsap girls also had two first-place finishers — Brooklyn Roberts (117-122) and Emilia Robles (125-134).
