Enumclaw wrestlers beat Orting, face Tahoma Friday

The high-school wrestling season is heating up with the post-season tournaments just around the corner.

But the dual meets aren’t over just yet. Enumclaw, ranked No. 1 in Class 3A, has a challenging week. The Hornets passed the first test Wednesday with a 40-29 victory over Orting, which is ranked No. 1 in Class 1A. Both are defending state champions.

Next up is the annual “Battle of the Bone” Friday between Enumclaw and Tahoma, which is ranked No. 1 in Class 4A. The match is at 7:30 p.m. at Tahoma. We will have a reporter there, so make sure you look for the story Saturday if you can’t make it out to the match. It’s senior night for Tahoma, which is calling for a “black-out” by fans, asking them to come dressed in black.

The winner gets to keep the trophy — which features a four-foot cown bone — until the teams meet again the following year.

In the latest overall state rankings (regardless of classification) on the Washington Wrestling Report website, Orting is ranked No. 2 behind Mead of Spokane, with Tahoma No. 5 and Enumclaw No. 10. Remember, though, this are tournament rankings, rather than for dual meets.

I expect to see a new set of rankings by early next week. The ones currently posted are from Jan. 16-18.
