Overall, more than 20 teams from across the state participated in three different divisions on Friday and Saturday in the SHS gym.

As a team, Seward went 3-2 in their division and finished behind only Wasilla and Redington in the standings.

Ogle was among the Seahawks' top grapplers during the two-day meet. The freshman wrestled his way to a perfect 4-0 record, including a pin of Wasilla's Jonathan Miller in the Seahawks' opening-round loss.

Ogle's victory over Miller was one of only three wins the Seahawks managed against Wasilla. Woods and James Helberg also notched victories in the 52-18 setback.

Seward bounced back nicely, however. After a bye, the Seahawks rolled to an easy 53-18 victory over Valdez. The SHS squad won nine of the 13 weight classes in their win over the Buccaneers.

Following a narrow 46-34 loss to Redington, Seward closed out the tournament with a 54-18 rout of Houston.

Woods, who went 4-0 in the 113-pound division, helped Seward close out the tournament with a bank. He wrapped up his outing with a pin of Houston's David Revilak at the 39-second mark of the first period.

Freshman sensations Clay Petersen and Collin Mullaly also turned in impressive outings for Seward. Peterson went 3-1 overall, while Mullaly worked his way to a 3-1 mark in the 126-pound division. Thomas Ooka also performed well by turning in a 2-2 record.

Cyrus Petty and Jaden Van Dyke also rolled up impressive outings. Competing in the 195-pound weight classification, Petty posted a 3-1 mark. Van Dyke was 3-1 in the 145-pound division, including a win over Redington's Travis Castle.

Senior Cole Norcross picked up a pair of wins. Norcross went 2-2 in the 132-pound classification. Levi Deboard went 1-2 in the same division.

Sophomore Rebecca Christensen also garnered a win. She was 1-3 in the 152-pound bracket.
