Eleven wrestlers went to the Battle of the Palouse tournament in Potlatch, Id., February 8.

As a team, the Pirate wrestlers won 18 and lost 15 matches, placing 5 of the 11 wrestlers in the top two placings in their respective brackets. Nine wrestlers on the team won at least 1 match, which is a marked improvement from the previous tournament the weekend before.

The outstanding wrestler was Noah Prevost, who pinned all three of his opponents in the first round, earning a first-place medal. Noah wrestled aggressive and smart, keeping the pressure on his opponent but not putting himself in risky situations, Steele said.

Ethan Prevost had an exciting match in the finals, narrowly missing a takedown in sudden death overtime. He 'went down swinging' by attempting a takedown on an exhausted but bigger wrestler from Kamiah, Steele said.

Noah Prevost earned a first place medal, while Ethan Prevost, Walker Flynn, Tyler Slaybaugh and Kyzer Herres all earned second place medals.
