PASCO - As a team, the Grandview Greyhound wrestling team was 0-4 yesterday, Thursday, at the Best of the West tourney in Pasco.
Grandview lost 36-31 to West Salem, fell 48-30 to Capital, 38-24 to Moses Lake and 68-11 to Chiawana.
A bright spot for the Greyhounds was that three wrestlers were undefeated on the day; Fidel Medina (106 lbs.), David Castaneda (126 lbs.), who improved his season record to 13-2, and Joesiah Saunders (138 lbs.).
Also encouraging for Grandview is that Jaron Raymond returned to the mat after being away for a year-and-a-half due to injury. Raymond (132 lbs.) was 2-2.
"It's nice to see Jaron back on the mat. He is one of our hardest workers and a team leader," said Coach Jeff Sevigny.
The coach was also encouraged by Juan Tzib (120 lbs.), who was 2-2 at the Best of the West.
On an unfortunate note, Sevigny said Mario Prieto (145 lbs.) began the day winning his first two matches before sustaining an injury in his third match.
"We'll know more about the seriousness of the injury after he sees a doctor," Sevigny said.
Grandview is scheduled to return to action next Wednesday at the Hanford Winter Cup.
