The Marysville-Pilchuck wrestling team got their season started with a jamboree against the Mountlake Terrace Hawks and the Monroe Bearcats on Nov. 30.

The Tomahawks opened up the jamboree as they took on the Hawks. From the first wrestler to the last, Marysville-Pilchuck held their own and handled most of their opponents. With a handful of pins and a few forfeits, the Tomahawks won by a score of 60-12.

The Bearcats proved to be a tougher opponent as only one forfeit was recorded in favor of Monroe. However, even after starting down 6-0 the Tomahawks racked up a total of five pins and four other victories in order to win the matchup, 43-24.

"Jamborees are a fun way to start the season and it lets you realize all the things you need to do. I think all the teams are realizing that we have a lot of stuff to put in and teach the kids. Moving forward we are hoping that they are hungry and ready to fight for another league title," said Marysville-Pilchuck Head Coach Craig Iversen.

Jonathan Goeden had an incredible night against both teams as he earned two pins in the first round of each match. Against the Hawks he managed to finish it in the first 19 seconds and then finished against the Bearcats in less than 50 seconds.

Another impressive performance came from sophomore Austin Davis. He also put together two pins in his matches, the first with 24 seconds left in the third round and the second was executed with 39 seconds left in the second round.

If you want to support Marysville-Pilchuck on their home floor they will be competing against two teams on Thursday, Dec. 7. At 5:30 p.m. they will be going against the Meadowdale Mavericks and at 7 p.m. they will be taking on the Kamiak Knights.
