Bellevue High School won the Shoreline Invitational wrestling tournament for the second time in three years on Saturday, with five Wolverines winning their respective weight classes.

Jun Park (135-pounds), Connor Hudson (140), Peter Ovens (145), Colin Small (152) and Jimmy Trull (215) all won tournament titles.

Bellevue took the team lead early in the tournament and would eventually end up battling Shorewood for the title during the finals. Each school had seven wrestlers in the finals and three of the final matches featured Bellevue-Shorewood match-ups.

The Wolverines sealed the tournament title with pins by Park and Ovens over Shorewood opponents. Park, Hudson, Ovens and Trull all won all of their matches by pinning their opponents. It was the first tournament titles for Hudson, Ovens and Small.

Trull’s title was his third-straight Shoreline Invitational championship. It took the senior just 14 seconds to pin his first opponent, Ricky Le of Shorewood. Trull then pinned Nicco Fortes of O’Dea in 3:22 in the semifinals before pinning Roman Jones of Roosevelt in 1:30 for the title.

Matt Casimes finished in second in the 119-pound weight class after losing to Shorewood’s Brandon Leach in the finals, while Andy Ewing finished second in 130, his first tournament placing. Ewing pinned his first opponent in 18 seconds, then beat Justin Phillips of O’Dea 13-9 in the seminfinals. He was pinned by Calvin Olds of Roosevelt in 1:27 in the final.

His brother Chandler Ewing also earned his first tournament placing, taking fourth in the 140-pound weight class. Ben Matteucci took fourth in the 125-pound weight class.

“It was exciting to see Colin Small, Connor Hudson and Peter Ovens win their first championships in a tournament and to see the Ewing brothers place in a tournament for the first time,” said Bellevue coach Tom Ovens.
