Butte High flattens Sentinel in boys’ dual meet

MISSOULA – Sixth-ranked Butte High flexed some more wrestling muscle Tuesday night with a decisive 47-21 over Missoula Sentinel in a Western AA Conference dual meet held in Spartan Gym.

The Bulldogs rolled up five pins and a technical fall to highlight their win. The wins by fall were recorded by Ryder McEwen at 113 pounds, Grady Winston at 126, Kip Pumnea at 132, Bryton Hardesty at 138 and Cohen Grunhuvd at 205. Trey Hansen scored a 20-5 technical fall at 160 pounds.

“The guys wrestled well after coming off of a grueling weekend at the Tom LeProwse,” Butte High head coach Cory Johnston said, alluding to his team’s sixth-place finish in Bozeman’s Tom LeProwse Memorial Invitational tournament last weekend. “We were able to get a couple of different guys some varsity action, which is always nice as we prepare for the post-season.

“We’ll just continue to look forward to improving with each opportunity. Our next action is the Jug Beck, so things certainly do not let up from here, but we’re excited for a challenging weekend.”

Lincoln Zell was awarded a forfeit at 103 pounds in Butte High’s win over Sentinel. Bulldogs who won on decisions were Will Stepan at 145 pounds and Kade Schleeman in the 285-pound limit class.

Sentinel winners were Kade Wallace, on a decision at 120 pounds, Chase Petrey by pin at 152, Trevor Tucker by pin at 170 and Zander Beck by pin at 182.

The Bulldogs will return to Missoula this weekend to vie in the annual Jug Beck Rocky Mountain Classic tournament set for Friday and Saturday.
