Anthony Frey highlight Spud Walley Invitational for Blaine


Blaine's wrestling team's Anthony Frey took first in the 138-pound weight class and highlighted a number of strong finishes at the Spud Walley Invitational on Saturday, Dec. 7, in Sedro-Woolley.

"Anthony Frey was really tough," coach Craig Foster said in a phone interview. "He won a really competitive weight class."

Caleb Frey and Jon Stewart also made it to the final match in each of their respective classes. Caleb Frey competes in the 145-pound class and Stewart competes in the 160-pound class. Both wrestlers lost the final match by one point.

"It's a really tough, competitive tournament," Foster said. "We have several guys who really competed hard."

Mikey Antczak took third in the 285-pound class, which had five state medalists from a year ago in it.

With a tournament this early in the season, Foster was pleased with how his team did.

"We learned a lot about our kids," he said. "We have things to work on, which is always good. It was a really good learning experience for all of us. We realize the things we have to do to get to the next level."
