Moses Lake Wrestling Team

There are many high schools in Washington.  There are many wrestling programs as well, but there is only one Moses Lake wrestling program.  Founded in 1952 by Eric Beardsley, the Moses Lake wrestling tradition has been special from day one.  Coach Beardsley moved to college wrestling in 1959, but left the legacy of “Great Expectations” with the Moses Lake program.  That thought has passed from generation to generation. 
 
The Moses Lake wrestling program is a powerhouse in the history of Washington state wrestling.  They have won 41 district championships.  After 52 years of state wrestling tournaments, Moses Lake has been a top 10 finisher in 46 of the 52 years.  With 17 state titles, the first coming under Beardsley in 1959, and 11 second-place finishes, there is no doubt the Moses Lake program has been a constant in the Washington state high school wrestling.  With 57 individual state champions, 46 second-place finishers, and 36 third-place recipients, it is no wonder Moses Lake has been so dominant as a team.  They have had a total of 207 wrestlers place at the state championships.  Spencer Wolfe was the first of many two-time state champions.  Some could argue that the Moses Lake wrestling program provided a form of leadership in the development of the sport state wide. 
 
One of the greatest things about this program is the extreme sense of pride the community carries.  “Support is a rewarding thing,” according to former head coach, Ron Seibel, and the Moses Lake community gives the wrestling program plenty of it.
