The Arlington wrestling team battled the Marysville Getchell Chargers on their home mats on Dec. 14.

The Chargers got off to a strong start as they dominated early with two pins, leading by a score of 18-5 after four matches. Unfortunately for the Chargers, this strong stretched ended as the Eagles won nine out of the last 10. With multiple pins and a few blowouts, Arlington ended with a commanding victory of 49-22.

"Our kids came out to fight, and with half of them bumping up a weight class, I was very impressed with that. We had some holes we had to fill, they stepped up and adapted to the competition," said Arlington Head Coach Jonny Gilbertson.

The Eagles' Levi Wiseman, 195, and Connor Stockman, 220, controlled their matchups from start to finish. Wiseman had the only shutout throughout the night as he posted 12 points throughout all three rounds. Stockman, freshman standout, had the fastest finish from both teams as he secured his victory with a pin, 59 seconds into the first round.

"We're a very young team this year, but they're very eager, working hard and good things are coming. With my first year as a head coach, I am just trying to instill a good work ethic and making sure they are getting a little better every day," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach John Deaver.

Miguel Garcia-Ramirez, 120, and Tanner Condon, 126, gave the Chargers the early lead over the Eagles. Garcia-Ramirez had the fastest finish for Marysville Getchell as he earned a pin 1:20 into the first round. Condon also secured his victory with a pin as he fought to the last round and finished it with 59 seconds left.
