Blue Devils Win at Home

The Sault High Blue Devils hosted the second Straits Area Conference meet Wednesday night, and won both of their duals. The Blue Devils took on the Newberry Indians first, and started off with a pair of pins. Calvin Aldrich (215) pinned Gabe Luck (2:33) and Sawyer Kuenzer pinned Gabe Hamilton (3:40). Newberry tied the score winning the next two weight classes by void. Max VanDoren (126) won his weight class by void, putting the Sault back in the lead. Newberry’s Quentin Bliss (132) beat Wyatt Peabody by points (6-0), making the score Sault 18 and Newberry 15. Will Ohman (138) had a void in his weight class. Hayden O’Neill (144) followed with six points for the Indians after pinning Caleb Klier (0:44). Brett Siesel (150) put another six on the scoreboard for the Blue Devils with a void. Brady Rondeau of the Sault pinned Kameron Blau (1:11), and Jonah Rishmawi (165) followed with six more thanks to a void. Newberry’s Kennedy DePew (175) pinned Marc DeWildt (2:54) and Cody Russo (190) wrapped up the dual with the final six points with a void. The final score was Sault 48, and Newberry 27.

The Sault wrestled a small Pellston team next in a fairly quick dual thanks to a number of voids. Trevor Anderson (285) and Max VanDoren (126) won by void. Wyatt Peabody (132) pinned John Sonnenberg (3:00), and Will Ohman pinned Hunter Sonnenberg (0:58). Sam Kiekhaefer (144) and Brett Siesel (150) both won by void. Kenny Crawford of Pellston scored the only points for his team when he pinned Brady Rondeau (2:46). The next four Blue Devils wrestlers Jonah Rishmawi (165), Marc DeWildt (175), Chris Kiekhaefer (190) and Calvin Aldrich (215) won by void. The final score was Sault 60, and Pellston 6. Blue Devils Head Coach Jacinto Arreola shared “It’s tough with four kids.”

The Blue Devils (4-0) will host their annual Bridge Brawl on Friday, with a 2:00 start time. “Looking to make it 9-0 with non conference tomorrow.” Six teams from the UP will match up against six teams from the Lower Peninsula, which will make for a great afternoon of wrestling.
