Wrestling sculpture completed, could be installed soon

Print Article

MOSES LAKE — Sculptures of various athletics dot downtown Moses Lake.

Although, there is one obvious omission — wrestling. The sport that the town is known for, where the high school has 18 state championships.

The absence of a wrestling sculpture should change shortly.

A committee featuring wrestling legend, and former Moses Lake mayor, Jon Lane worked to create the sculpture with Don Garrett and Craig Skeesick. Garrett, who worked for the City of Moses Lake, was tasked with the design and construction of the sculpture. Skeesick added his artistic talents to refine the look to best fit with the downtown collection.

Columbia Basin Technical School was brought into the fold to help gain experience for its welding students.

The sculpture is 49 inches tall, weighs between 800 and 900 pounds, and — of course — is painted maroon and gold.

According to Lane, parks superintendent Rolando Gonzales said the sculpture could be installed near Sinkiuse Square by the end of the week. However, on Monday, no official date or time had been set.
