POULSBO — The Kingston Junior High wrestling team will start its season tomorrow.

The Cavs will face Bremerton at 3 p.m.

The Cavaliers have about 35 wrestlers, coach Chris Gilbreath said, a mix of experienced and new, and he’s looking forward to helping them learn.

“We should have some individual who should show well during the season and do well in the tournament,” Gilbreath said.

Gilbreath said the turnout of 35 is a little lower than he’d like.

“We’ll probably end up having some holes in our lineup. We don’t have a lot of JV kids, and with illnesses and things that happen, dual match victories may be a little difficult.”

Still, Gilbreath said, the season has some promise.

“We have young guys who have a lot of promise. And we want to keep them excited about the sport,” he said.

The wrestlers include Kyle Cetnarowski at 110 lb.; Garren Dukes and Danny Harris at 115; Andrew Robison at 135; Miles Pendergraft at 145; Tim McMullen, a new wrestler, at 130 — “He’ll be a strong wrestler for us,” Gilbreath said; Chris Stemmler and Kyle Welsh, a pair of seventh graders; experienced wrestler Corey Best at 145; Curtis Travelstead, who Gilbreath said will be “very tough,” at 154; Mike Storey at 210; and last year’s runner-up league champion, Daniel Paulson, at 78 or 85.

Brian Parrott, an eighth grader, will also contribute this year (Gilbreath dubs him an “up-and-coming wrestler”), as will ninth-grader Joe Eberharter, who weighs in at 175 pounds. Justin Dielman, who is an experienced Pee Wee wrestler, will also help out.
