KELLOGG WRESTLING 

District 1-2 Tournament 

ST. MARIES –– Six Wildcats are district champions and 17 total qualified for the 2A State Tournament as Kellogg won their third straight district championship. 

Johnny Stovern (98), Ricky Haralson (120), Chase Scribner (126), Kolter Wood (132), Jaeger Hall (145) and Ramsey Rainio (170) all won their respective weights, but it was everywhere else that really locked up the team championship. 

Wildcat assistant coach Travis Berti was very pleased with the efforts from his squad. 

“We wrestled very well, always things to improve on, but we won a lot of big matches and won several matches where we were the lower seed going in,” Berti said. “The boys rose to the occasion and came out firing giving themselves a great opportunity next weekend at state.”

The Wildcats’ performance grabbed the attention of a few of the opposing coaches. 

“Great district tournament,” St. Maries coach Dennis Humphrey said. “I haven’t seen as competitive of a district tournament in a long time. Hats off to Kellogg, they wrestled lights-out in an almost flawless tournament from the first whistle. Very happy for some of our young kids.”

Priest River had two champs — Colm McLaimtag (138) and Caeden McLaimtaig (152). St. Maries had two winners — Aiden Yearout (160) and Scott Sotin (285).

The top three placers in each weight qualify for state, which is this Friday and Saturday at the ICCU Dome in Pocatello. Three Wildcats, AJ Peak, Tanner Williams, and Kyle VanVleet also received wildcard bids to state. 

On the girls side of the district tournament, Kellogg’s Izzy Davis brought home the 145-pound championship, while Sophia McClain (100-lb) finished second – both qualified for the state tournament.

Head coach Scott Miller is excited to see what his crew can do when they head south. 

“I think the North will do well at state,” Miller said. “St. Maries and Priest River will bring good teams. Malad is probably the team to beat, but we are right in there also.”

Freshman Logan Strobel scored eight points for Kootenai.

“It was a heck of a game,” Kootenai coach Tom Tucker said. “The boys played outstanding defense, showing true intensity and a lot of hustle. Chris had an outstanding night on offense, but was more impressive with his steals on defense. He was tenacious, not letting the ballhandler move the ball up the court. Logan showed his maturity being our best defensive player on the team. I was so proud to watch those boys play basketball tonight.”

Senior Stephen Petit scored 18 points for Mullan.

Kootenai and Mullan will play Tuesday, Feb. 20, at 5:30 p.m. in the loser-out first-round of the 1A Division II District 1 tournament at North Idaho College. The winner will play top-seeded Clark Fork on Thursday for the district title, and a spot in a state play-in game a week from Saturday.
