Boekelman, W. Meyers take 6th; D. Meyers 7th; C. Meyers 8th
The Kentwood wrestling team ended up bringing 3 boys to state, and 2
girls to state. Josh Boekelman powered his way to the semis,
later earning 6th place. Walker Meyers competed in one of the
toughest brackets at state, gritting his way to 6th place as well.
Dalton Meyers ended up earning his state place in about the most
exciting way possible, throwing a head and arm with about 5 seconds
left near the out of bounds to win it. Dalton would later end
up in 7th place. Cassidy Meyers placed for the 4th consecutive
year, becoming the first 4-time girls placer at Kentwood High
School. Sara Mozeleski made it to state as freshman, winning
one match in her first state tournament. Kentwood is
graduating very few seniors, and is looking to improve on this
Regular season update: 2nd Place in League, 3 Top-5 Finishes
The Kentwood Varsity wrestling team went 4-0 in January to boost
their record to 7-1 in league, good enough for 2nd place in league.
(47-22), Auburn (47-25), Mt. Rainier (75-6), and Kentridge (44-27)
set the Conks up well for the postseason. In addition to the 4
dual meet wins, Kentwood placed 5th at the Panther Invite, 3rd at
the Marysville Premier, and 2nd at the Jaguar Invite. Walker
Meyers (120) was the lone champion at the Panther Invite; but
Conor Berlin (113), Dalton Meyers (132, 138), and Jamiel Jackson
(152) won both the Marysville Premier and the Jaguar Invite at their
respective weights. Kentwood placed 5 wrestlers at the Panther
Invite, 9 at the Marysville Premier, and 14 at the Jaguar Invite.
The next stop for the Conks is the postseason, where we will bring 2
wrestlers per weight to the league tournament. The top 4 at
each weight advance to the regional tournament.
December update: Double Duals and All-SPSL
December proved to be a valuable challenge for the Conquerors,
starting off with an extremely difficult two days of double duals in
December. On the 19th, Kentwood lost 47-26 to the defending 4A
state champion Tahoma Bears. The Meyers brothers both picked
up victories, with Walker (120) pinning his Tahoma opponent in
overtime and Dalton (138) majoring his opponent 9-1. Jamiel
Jackson (152, pin), David Park (170, major), and Quintin Trinh (182,
pin) also picked up wins for the Conks. In the last match of
the night, Kentwood defeated Thomas Jefferson 57-13, only losing
three individual matches. To add to our degree of difficulty,
Kentwood went on to face the defending 3A state champion Enumclaw
Hornets on the next day. The Conks battled, but eventually
lost 41-27. Walker Meyers (120), Conor Berlin (126), Dalton Meyers
(138, match of the night), and Logan Beerss (145) all pinned to keep
the match relatively close. Following the Enumclaw match,
the Conks went on to handle highly ranked 2A Sumner with ease,
55-11. The Spartans would only win two matches on the night,
with Kentwood winning all of the close matches. Pins by Vu Van
(106), Conor Berlin (126), Dalton Meyers (138), Tim Angevine (195),
Kyle Capperauld (220), and Nolan Sijer (285) extended the Conqueror
lead. The Conks wrestled in the All-SPSL tournament on
December 28th and 29th, which is probably the most difficult
tournament in all of Washington state throughout the entire year.
The Conks finished in 7th, a very respectable finish.
The placers for Kentwood were: Dalton Meyers (138, 3rd), Jamiel
Jackson (152, 4th), Walker Meyers (120, 5th), Logan Beerss (145,
6th), David Park (170, 6th), Josh Boekelman (182, 6th), and Shpejtim
Gllareva (126, 7th). Videos from all of our matches and
tournaments are available on HUDL.
