Thunder Mountain High School's Q'On Bear Clark grapples with Hoonah's Torsten Skaflestad during the 170-pound championship of the Brandon Pilot Invitational on Saturday at TMHS. Bear Clark won by decision 3-1.

Mt. Edgecumbe High School won the lightest and the heaviest weight brackets, and a few in between, on their way to Saturday’s team title in the 2013 Brandon Pilot Invitational at Juneau’s Thunder Mountain High School.

The Braves’ Deirdre Creed won the 98-pound championship 8-0 over Petersburg’s Buddy Stelmach and Paul Johanson pinned Juneau-Douglas’ J.D. Hudson at 1:39 for the 285-pound title.

“You just have to always go out there thinking you can win,” Creed said. “Just having that mental attitude that you can do anything.”

Creed, the defending Region V champion and one of over a dozen female wrestlers that started on the Braves team, is a senior captain that coaches credit for leading the squad.

“All of our captain work hard,” Creed said. “They see us try hard in practice. The team thinks of me as a wrestler and that’s what I like about our team. I hope more girls turn out for wrestling.”

Creed, a senior, is the defending Region V champ and finished fifth at last season’s state championships. She also qualified for state as a sophomore.

Johanson is a two-time runner-up for the state championship and recently took first at 220-pounds at the Anchorage Christian School Tournament. He is ranked first in the state at that weight.

“I had to keep a steady pace,” Johanson said. “I tend to go out there and gun too fast an lose my energy. Hudson is a tough match and he really helps me. It is good for me with regions coming up soon.”

The Braves also got a title win at 106-pounds with Moses Jackson getting a 6-0 decision over Ketchikan’s Trevor Wutzke

Thunder Mountain brought home Juneau’s lone title with Q’On Bear Clark putting a masterful 3-1 decision over Hoonah’s Torsten Skaflestad across three periods at 170-pounds.

Petersburg took three championships.

At 106-pounds the Vikings’ Daryl Toyomura pinned Haines’ Charlie Bower at 1:59; at 138-pounds John Brooks pinned TMHS’ Hunter Boyer at 3:06; and at 152-pounds Billy Ware scored a 15-4 major decision over JDHS’ Malik Brown.

Ketchikan also found three titles.

The Kings’ Marcus Martin took the 120-pound weight with a 6-4 decision over Sitka’s Caleb Suarez; Nate Fousel scored an 8-2 decision over JDHS’ Cody Weldon; and Robert Williams pinned TMHS’ Joe Paden at 3:05.

“I just had to keep moving,” Fousel said. “Find my shots and fakes. I am looking forward to the rest of the season and for state.”

At 126-pounds Hoonah’s Manny Budke scored a 12-3 major decision over Mt. Edgecumbe’s Jeremy Roberts.

At 132-pounds Skagway’s Trevor Cox took a 9-6 decision over Mt. Edgecumbe’s Timothy Mack.

Sitka’s Jaren Sumauang won by technical fall, 22-7, over Mt. Edgecumbe’s Franklin Hoogendorn.

Pelican’s Trevor Hafendorfer won the 160-pound title with an 8-6 over Petersburg’s Isaiah May.
