PREP ROUNDUP: Duthie steps in, steps up for Post Falls wrestlers

• WRESTLING

COEUR d’ALENE — Wrestlers always have to stay ready, even if they’re not in that lineup on a particular night.

Post Falls senior Malcolm Duthie found that out on Thursday night.

Duthie, a 220-pounder not scheduled to wrestle for the Trojans against Orting (Wash.) at North Idaho College, was put into the match after Matthew Ludwig, the originally scheduled wrestler, was ruled out with the flu.

“Malcolm just rode the bus with us to watch tonight,” Post Falls coach Pete Reardon said. “We had to go pull him out of the lobby. He put Matt’s gear on, and ended up getting a huge win for us.”

How huge?

Post Falls trailed 36-24 before Gentry Smith earned a major decision at 195 pounds. Duthie got a pin, then senior Trevor Miller had a pin 1:35 into the 285-pound match to give the Trojans a 40-36 win at North Idaho College.

“Trevor was kind of intense at the start of the match, so we had to tell him to calm down a little,” Reardon said. “He took a good shot and just took care of business. Orting has some really good kids, but our kids didn’t back down, which was cool to see.”

The teams will compete in the Tri-State Invitational today at North Idaho College starting at 10 a.m.

98 — Jared Wallace, PF, by forfeit. 106 — Isaiah Cramer, PF, by forfeit. 113 — Michael Fritz, Ort, p. Rider Seguine, 5:05. 120 — Alan Salguero, Jr., Ort, p.

Lake City 66

Kamiak 43

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. — Lake City shot 61.6% from the field and won by 23.

But the Timberwolves’ victory over Kamiak of Mukilteo, Wash., in the first round of the Curtis Winter Classic at Curtis High didn’t seem to come that easily, at least in the eyes of Lake City coach Jim Winger.

“It’s misleading,” he said. “I thought we missed a lot of easy ones. We didn’t play great — scattered, I’d call it.”

Kolton Mitchell had 15 points, eight rebounds, four steals and two assists for Lake City (4-0), which will play Central Catholic (3-0) of Portland tonight at 7 in a semifinal game.

Nathan Hocking hit two 3-pointers and added 12 points for Lake City, and Reese Strawn hit two 3s and scored 10.

“What I liked is they got it to one in the second half, and we really responded,” Winger said. “We didn’t do it with maybe our best play, but we scratched and clawed, and pulled away

When you can play not even close to your best game, and still pull away by 23 … ”

Lake City shot 26 of 41 from 2s, and 6 of 11 on 3s. But the T-Wolves also committed 17 turnovers.

“Things were a struggle today,” Winger said. “When you play 21 games, they’re not all going to be 9s and 10s. Sometimes you’ve got to figure out a way when things are out of whack.”

Curtis 82

Post Falls 29

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. — The visiting Trojans fell to the defending Washington state 4A champion Vikings in the opening round of the Curtis Winter Classic.

“We knew we were going to face full-court pressure and they’d make everything miserable,” Post Falls coach Mike McLean said. “And they did just that. They’re a very well-oiled machine. They’re so efficient offensively and move as a unit defensively. They execute as well defensively as I’ve seen in a long time.”

Alexander Shields scored nine points for Post Falls (0-6), which plays in a consolation game against Kentridge today at 5:30 p.m. Kentridge lost to Mt. Spokane 73-59 in Thursday’s late game.
