Sophomore Mike Wilkinson competes earlier this season for the Trojans.

The Whitehall High School wrestling team ended 2017 in spectacular fashion.

All nine of the Trojans wrestlers competing were able to pick up a victory in a varsity dual victory over Anaconda. Eight of the wrestlers won by fall.

"They wrestled very solid and consistent," assistant coach Steve Sacry said.

Dawson Powers, Mike Wilkinson, Connor Johnson, Dallen Hoover, Garris Robertson, Kayden Howser and Dawson Hoerauf all picked up wins by pin. Wyatt Powers was also victorious 6-4 over Dylan Skoclich of Anaconda.

In junior varsity action, Gage McMillan and Brody Becker also had pins.

"An excellent show of force over a divisional rival. Very proud of the wrestlers," Sacry said.

Some of the newer wrestlers to the team were also able to get valuable experience last Thursday at a mixer in Townsend.

Sacry said all five of the Whitehall wrestlers won at least won match. McMillan and Becker both picked up two wins. Alleck Holloway, Robertson, and James DuBois also picked up wins for the Trojans.

The team will next compete January 5 and 6 at the Tom LeProwse Tournament in Bozeman.
