The Yelm boys wrestling team continues to dominate competition in the South Sound Conference. 

The Tornados secured a pair of wins Tuesday, Jan. 7, against Central Kitsap and North Thurston, then hosted Peninsula on Thursday, Jan. 9, to ultimately take another win. 

The Tornados are now 5-0 as a team in the SSC. 


Central Kitsap 

The Tornados narrowly clinched the 37-30 win against Central Kitsap. 

Yelm’s Caleb Harris (132) found a 32-second pin over Central Kitsap’s Christian Cartagena. Logan Platt (195) earned a pin against Central Kitsap’s Hayden Wallis in one minute, one second. 

While the Tornados dominated early pins, Cougars Micah Lamb (220), David McDaniels (285) and Conrad Bellon (113) worked in late-match pins against their opponents. 


North Thurston

Yelm was stacked up against the North Thurston Rams during their Tuesday matchup where the Tornados clinched a 75-0 win going undefeated. 

The Tornados forced pins-a-plenty; Jordan Katona (113, 5:51), Gage Nelson (126, 1:09), Caleb Harris (132, 3:17), Jabari Schovwiler (145, 1:37), William Corretto (160, 3:33), Ray Wright (182, 1:21), Platt (3:20), Kyle Creegan (220, 0:21) and Slade Edwards (285, 1:56) all clinched pins. 



The Tornados were a force to be reckoned with Thursday, Jan. 9, as they overtook Peninsula 66-9. 

Nelson had the match of the night going up against No. 2 wrestler Brock Allen and winning out the 126-pound bracket by a 14-4 decision. 

Yelm tallied seven total pins.
