PROSSER - The Grandview wrestling team earned its second league win last night in Prosser, defeating the home team 37-21.
Eight Greyhounds defeated their Mustang counterparts, half of the wins came by way of pin.
Earning the pins were Grandview's Castaneda brothers, Jaron Raymond, and Eduardo Alcantar.
In the 126-lb. weight class Diego Castaneda had Peayton Sperl on his back in 58 seconds. His older brother, David, pinned Prosser's William DeLeon in 1:27 in the 132-lb. bout.
Raymond (145 lbs.) pinned Omar Orellano in 2:27 and Alcantar took the same amount of time to get Zach Velasquez of Prosser on his back.
Mustang Alex Hurtado lost a 5-2 decision to Grandview's Juan Tzib in the 120-lb. match; Greyhound Stevie Rodriguez (138 lbs.) defeated Prosser's Luis Fernandez by a 15-1 decision; an 11-6 decision was earned by Grandview's Jose Castilleja in the 152-lb. bout against Mustang Nick Meza; and A.J. Valenzuela of Grandview earned a tightly contested 13-11 decision over Prosser's Wyatt Oswalt in the 182-lb. weight class.
Grandview Coach Jeff Sevigny said the Greyhounds started out looking "a little flat.
"Prosser really came out tough on their home mats and really fought us hard."
However, all but one of the matches won by Grandview came in the second half of last night's dual.
"There were several close matches in which they (the Mustangs) outhustled us and were able to come out with wins," said Sevigny.
The Mustangs won five of the first six matches last night.
The 195-lb. match was won by Prosser's Thomas Neimeyer by an 8-7 decision over Greyhound Adrian Magana.
Grandview's Kory Kollmar lost in 32 seconds by pin to Trevor Stroh in the 220-lb. bout, and teammate Ulyses Osuna in the 106-lb. bout lost a 14-12 decision to Allen Moyer of the Mustangs.
Omar Sandoval of Grandview fell by a 7-5 decision to Elias Arroyo in the 285-lb. match and Marizza Birrueta lost by pin in 1:02 to Prosser's Diego Atilano in the 113-lb. match.
"It's early in the season and we have a lot of work to do to get to where we want to be," said Sevigny.
The Greyhounds tomorrow (Thursday) have an opportunity to show their mettle when they host West Valley.
