After beating Everett, their biggest rival, earlier in the week, the Oak Harbor High School wrestlers suffered no letdown Thursday, Jan. 30, when they blasted visiting Marysville Getchell 66-15 to finish the Wesco 3A North season undefeated.


The Wildcats received four forfeits and won seven of the 10 contested bouts.


All of the Oak Harbor wins were by falls: Garrett Stahl (106 pounds, :45), Christian Bertram (113, 2:10), Jeremy Vester (132, 3:49), Jahleel Vester (138, 2:27), Mark Johnston (152, :28), Jacob Dugan (195, 5:43) and Ray Quinday (220, :31).


Winners by forfeit were Kekai Tarrant (160), Matt Zafra (170), Mike Laningham (182) and Jackson Constant (285).


The Chargers (0-4, 0-9) picked up their wins over Tricia Desquitado (120, 1:41), Carl Caidic (126, 1:47) and Sebastian Ceaser (145, 6-5).


The win wrapped up the Western Conference 3A North title for the Wildcats (4-0, 9-1). Oak Harbor now heads to the postseason, beginning with the subregional (district) tournament Friday and Saturday, Feb. 7 and 8, at Marysville-Pilchuck High School.

The Oak Harbor girls travel to Jackson High School for a tournament Saturday, Feb. 1, then take part in their subregional Feb. 7 and 8 at Mount Vernon.
