The Jenkins High wrestling team will be moving five wrestÂlers on to Mat Classic XXIV this week in Tacoma after a sucÂcessful regional tournament at Colville High School last SatÂurday.
As a team, Chewelah finÂished sixth in the 12 team tourÂnament and after their ifth place showing in the six-team Northeast A League District tournament, coach Patrick Mitchell was very pleased.
â€śIt was the best tournament we wrestled as a team all year,â€ť Mitchell said.
Kettle Falls High standout Tyler Vining will represent the Bulldogs at Friday and Saturdayâ€™s Mat Classic XXIV in the Tacoma Dome.
The KFHS junior will open his tournament on Friday afternoon at approximately 1 p.m. in a first round match-up with Michael Siperly of Adna. A win would draw a quarterfinal match-up Friday evening at about 7:30 p.m. against the winner of the Darrin Springs (Darrington) vs. Austin Reisdorph (Pomeroy) opener.
Vining led the KFHS contingent at the 1B/2B regional at Kittitas High School last weekend with a fourth place finish.

Northport High (18-4) will face Cusick (10-12) in a District 7 1B boyâ€™s loser-out game Wednesday at Deer Park High School. Game time is 5 p.m.
The Mustangs, who dropped a 59-37 decision to third-ranked Valley Christian (19-2) last Saturday night at Deer Park High School, will play Cusick for the fourth time this season.
Northport is 3-0 against the Panthers to date, but if the first three encounters with their Panorama League rivals havenâ€™t necessarily been buzzer-beaters, theyâ€™ve been close.
Colville High built a big early lead and cruised to a 44-26 win over Newport to annex the District 7 1A girlâ€™s basketball championship last Friday night at Mead High School.
Behind Ashley Knightâ€™s 28 points and 12 rebounds, the Indians (16-6) advanced to the title game with a 51-36 win last Wednesday over Lakeside in the opening round of District play.
CHS advances as District 7â€™s top seed to this weekâ€™s Bi-District 6-7 Tournament at Chelan High School and the Chelan Community Center.
