Earlier this season, the Chiawana Riverhawks won their second league title and ran the table in the CBBN 4A.
Now, they are working on their first district championship.
The host Riverhawks jumped out to a 31-point lead Friday in the first day of the CBBN 4A district, moving 15 wrestlers into today's semifinals.
The top four in each weight class advance to next week's regional tournament at Moses Lake. Today's matches start at 10 a.m., with championships estimated for a 4 p.m. start.
Never miss a local story.
There were few surprises on the first day, as the top three seeds advanced in each weight and only five No. 4s were knocked off.
Chiawana has 146 points, with Moses Lake second at 115. The Chiefs have 11 in the semifinals, including seven in the first four weights. Noteable among the Moses Lake lineup was Beau Gleed and Hayden Wise swapping weights at 120 and 126. Gleed dropping down sets up a potential final between state placers, with Richland's Josh Andrew the No. 1 seed in the bracket.
The Bombers have three in the semifinals and are in sixth place. Walla Walla has five in the semis but still trails Richland by 51/2 points and is in last place.
Team scores--Chiawana 146, Moses Lake 115, Wenatchee 96, Davis 72, Eisenhower 69, Richland 63, Walla Walla 571/2.
