The Shorewood wrestling team placed seven of its eight regional qualifiers among the top five in their weight classes in the Region I 3A wrestling tournament at Glacier Peak High School Saturday.

The tournament involved wrestlers from the Wesco 3A division, the Northwest League 3A division and the Kingco Conference 3A division.

Freshman Matthew Floresca claimed the regional title at 112 pounds. Brandon Leach followed that by winning the 119-pound title. Placing third for the T-Birds were junior Alex Lee at 103 pounds, senior Daniel Yun at 112 pounds and senior Kyle Floresca at 135. Senior Joel Smith placed fourth and junior David Ball placed fifth in their classifications.

Ian Bolstad of Shorecrest placed second at 285 pounds.

Shorewood placed second in the team standings behind a strong showing for Mercer Island. Shorewood's second-place finish is highest regional placing in school history for T-Bird wrestlers. The top four wrestlers in each division qualify for next week's Mat Classic Championship in the Tacoma Dome. Wrestlers placing fifth will be alternates.

Shorewood coach Derek Norton told the Everett Herald that he was surprised that the team placed second in the regional tournament just a week after finishing sixth at the District 1 meet.

Shorecrest placed 15th in the team standings.
