SPOKANE — Wa-Hi’s Logan Reardon qualified for next weekend’s Mat Classic state wrestling championships by finishing third in the 220-pound weight class during Class 4A regional action that wrapped up here Saturday at Central Valley High School.
Reardon split his first two matches before registering pins in his final two contests.
“He stormed back,” Wa-Hi coach Dallas Jones said. “It bodes well. It’s good to come from a tough region. He bounced back and wrestled well. I’m proud of him for doing that.
Jones also praised Zane Henderson (170) and Noe Gonzalez (120) for finishing fifth and sixth, respectively. Henderson will be a state alternate.
“Zane Henderson wrestled well,” Jones said. “Noe Gonzalez had a couple of heartbreaking losses. The kids wrestled hard. We didn’t do as well but the kids never quit and never gave up.”
