11-man wrecking crew brings home league title; sights set on district title and state appearances 

OMAK –The 2019-2020 season has proved to be the year of the Pioneers.

After getting closer and closer to a league title the past few years, the Omak High School varsity wrestling team broke through.

They brought home this year’s Caribou Trail League championship, finishing the year with a 7-1 league record.

“The team is fired up,” says Dean Agee, head coach for Omak. “I feel like this team has a good shot to win a District 6 title as well.”

Agee expressed that even though his squad is just a few weight classes short, that hasn’t deterred them or held them back from achieving success.

“With an 11-man team, they have been showing determination and grit,” says Agee.

There are 14 weight classes on a typical varsity team.

Omak secured their league title in Chelan for a double dual on Jan. 30. They knocked off Okanogan 47-33 in their first dual, which brought them the CTL championship.  They would go on to beat Cashmere 48-24 later in the evening to put the icing on the cake, finishing 7-1 in league.

Omak gears up for the Caribou Trail League championships at Cascade High School on Feb. 8. A week later, the regional wrestling tournament will be held at Deer Park High School on Feb. 15 for a 10 a.m. start time.
