Orcas Island’s Wiebe places third at Mat Classic

Beau Wiebe, an Orcas Island High School senior, placed third in the 132-pound division of the 2018 Class 1B/2B State Wrestling Tournament Saturday, Feb. 17, 2018 in the Tacoma Dome. 

Wiebe, who competed with the Friday Harbor Wolverines this season, earned a first-round bye at the Mat Classic after winning his weight class at the regional tourney in Kalama one week earlier. Weibe defeated Tonasket’s Rielan Bretz 16-3 in the quarterfinals on the first day of action Feb. 16. State runner-up Randy Dixon of Mary Walker pinned Wiebe in three minutes, 41 seconds in a semifinal. 

In a consolation semifinal, Wiebe stopped Davenport’s Justin Chapman at 2:17. Wiebe closed his high school career by sticking Dayton’s Carlos Norris at 2:33 in the consolation final.
