Houston wrestlers win Homer Rumble

The Houston wrestling team edged Skyview, Nikiski and Homer for first place at the Homer Rumble in Homer on Saturday.

Houston finished with 105 points, followed by Skyview (100), Nikiski (84) and Homer (75). Seward took seventh. Cordova and Voznesenka also competed.

Skyview’s individual champions were Hannah Hutchison at 106 pounds, Sam Janorschke at 132, Cody Williams at 145 and Frank Navarro at 152.

Nikiski received individual titles from Dakoda Neely at 113, Corey Green at 160 and Lincoln Johnson at 182.

Host Homer didn’t have any first-place finishers. Seward, meanwhile, received an individual crown from Jed Wilde at 126.

Mariners coach Chris Perk, whose squad beat Cordova 58-12 and Houston 38-33 in dual competition Friday, said his unit showed great strides after competing last weekend at the Anchorage Christian Schools Invite.

“We kind of had a breakthrough weekend after kind of getting pummeled at ACS,” Perk said. “It was nice to come home to a smaller setting and home crowd. We made some adjustments and showed some good progress.”

Here are the results from Friday’s duals and Saturday’s rumble:
