Since Polson High School wrestler Hunter Fritsch transferred from Oklahoma his sophomore year, he’s been labeled “that guy” the coaching staff and wrestler both know will be at the top of the podium someday in Billings.

Now that Fritsch is a senior, the coaching staff is ready to see his natural ability meet his maturity, and during the season-opening Owen Invitational hosted by Polson, that happened.

Fritsch was the main catalyst behind Polson’s claiming the Owen Invitational for themselves Saturday afternoon at Joe McDonald Gym at Salish Kootenai College in Pablo.

“We were lucky to get him back,” Pirates coach Kevin Owen said. “He wrestled for us when he was younger in our Little Guy Program, and we were able to get him back as a sophomore.”

Now that Fritsch is a senior, he is utilizing his natural ability to make leaps and bounds in his wrestling skills. The move resulted in Polson winning the Owen Invite as a team for the first time in nearly 18 years.

“I think Hunter was just getting focused,” Owen said. “He could be a little emotional from time to time, and sometimes he could be in the moment when he wrestled. This weekend, I saw a calmness when he wrestled. He wrestled with a purpose while being mindful of what he was doing on the mat.”

Fritsch pinned his way through the tournament, and according to Owen, the team wouldn’t have captured the tourney crown without his efforts.

“He pinned his way through the tournament,” Owen said.

Logan Adler, a 182-pound freshman wrestler and younger brother of Parker Adler, took second place.

“He is in the best position when he is on the top position,” Owen said. “He is just like Parker, and if he gets his opponents in a bad position, he usually puts them away.”

Owen said he pleased with his team’s first-place performance but knows there is a long way to go.

“I think you can take only so much away from early in the season,” Owen said. “That is a real positive, and it is something that we can build on. This is the first time in over 18 years that we’ve won this tournament.

Other Pirate wrestlers that excelled:

103: Pirates senior RJ Pierre has become a staple at the lower weight divisions for Polson over the years. Pierre brought back plenty of state-qualifying experience and showcased his talent in this week’s Owen Invite. “We hope he makes a run a little bit deeper this year,” Owen said. “He’ll be right in the mix.”

The other wrestler, at 103-pounds, is Gavin Knutson, who has already showcased his talent. “He has a lot of talent, and we saw a lot of good things out of him,” Owen said. “He is a little bit undersized, and we are working hard to put some weight on him. I think he is going to have a great season.”

113: Pirates’ Kedrick Baker is another wrestler that has been a part of the Polson wrestling machine for a long time. “He was right in the mix of all of his matches at the Owen Invite,” Owen said. “He still had the heart and determination after his early loss.”

120: Maysn Cowell — “Cowell grew and gained a significant amount of weight during the offseason,” Owen said. “We will see what his potential could be. He was right in the mix in all of his matches. He started at the 103-pound weight class, and sometimes it takes a while to transition in that weight class.”

152: Bridger Wenzel has been on the cusp of capturing a state championship title the last couple of seasons at MHSA in Billings. “Every time he wrestled that wrestler in Belgrade, he has got beaten,” Owen said. “Bridger will make some adjustments, and hopefully get anxious to face him and get the better of him by the end of the season.”

Mission/Charlo has four placers

Mission/Charlo Bulldog grapplers had four placers at the Owen Invitational.

Coach Lyle Cronk’s assessment of the season opener was, “All in all it was a great tournament and a lot of fun. We had plenty to be proud of and we also have plenty to improve on. Perfect for a season opener!”

The quartet of juniors who placed were runnerup Isaiah Allik (170), a pair of fourth place finishers in Walker Murphy (120) and Darwin Adams (145), while Miles Anderson (205) finished fifth. Cronk emphasized the “intensity Isaiah displayed throughout the tournament,” Murphy’s effort “fighting back through the consolation bracket” and how both Adams and Anderson “looked tough” as contributing factors on an encouraging start to their season.

Chiefs have two place winners

Ronan had a pair of medal winners at the Owen Invitational last weekend in Pablo.

Teamwise, the Chiefs finished in 18 th place, scoring 51.5 points.

Justin May earned third place at 205 pounds, defeating Mahlon Clark of Lake City (Idaho) in a 7-1 decision.

Teammate Daniel Bishop won his final match, a 9-5 decision over Porter Howard of Lake City to take fifth-place honors at 152 pounds.

“The two kids who placed wrestled really well,” Ronan head coach Dylan Kramer said.

Ronan will have three additional wrestlers for the Mining City Duals in Butte this Friday and Saturday.

“It’s a pretty fun tournament to go to,” Kramer said, explaining that there will be pool matches first day and bracket competition Saturday. “We get a variety of competition.”

Thilmony champ for T-Falls/Noxon

Trae Thilmony, in his first high school competition, led Thompson Falls/Noxon by winning the 113-pound title at the Owen Invitational. Roman Sparks was fourth at 126 while Seth Alarcon placed fifth at 285 and Dakota Irvine was sixth at 182.
