Our team has been competing well over the past three weeks and our team is primed to have a great post season. This past weekend the Varsity team headed to Lake Stevens for the Viking Invite and competed with some of the top 3A and 4A teams in the state. We crowned champions at 138 with Steele Starren defeating a returning State Champion from Camas and at 182 with Michael Gasper also defeating a two-time State Finalist from White River. Gage Dress-Moran also made the finals but came up short against the returning 3A State Champion. Both Austin Michalski (132) and Levi Kovacs (220) had great performances and placed 3rd. Devin Martin (126) had his best tournament of the year finishing 5th in a very competitive bracket.

This week, the Bears will wrestle in a triple dual tomorrow night (1/16/2019) at Mt. Rainier High School. The team will compete against Mt. Rainier, Kennedy Catholic and Hazen.

This weekend the team will head over the pass to Spokane for Dream Duals, held at the Spokane Convention Center. Details for this tournament can be found at http://www.winterwarriorwrestling.com/
