Homer and Bethel picked up pool victories at the King of the Mountain Wrestling Tournament in Seward on Friday and Saturday.

The purpose of the tournament is to get the wrestlers a lot of competition in a short period of time. Ronn Hemstock, a coach in Seward, calculated there were about 675 matches in two days.

“The people got their money’s worth,” Hemstock said. “They came and played.”

Homer won Pool A, while Bethel took Pool B.

Also in Pool A, Glennallen was second, Nome was third, Anchorage Christian Schools was fourth, Kenai Central was fifth, Redington Sr. Jr/Sr High School was sixth, and Valdez was seventh.

Also in Pool B, Seward was second, Houston was third, Nikiski was fourth, Barrow was fifth, Grace Christian was sixth and Voznesenka was seventh.

After the duals in pool wrestling, the top wrestlers from each pool faced off for first place at the tournament.

Joseph White of Glennallen, who took first place at 182, was named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Wrestler.
