Seven Shorecrest High School wrestlers competed at Regional Tournaments this weekend. Six of the Scot District qualifiers competed at the 3A Region 3 tournament in Everett and the Scots' only female wrestler (Alyssa Moore) competed at the WIAA Girls Regional tournament in Sedro Woolley.

Kaiya Conway-Yasuyama - 113lbs - placed 3rd in a 12 man bracket and will advance to the Tacoma Dome next weekend. This is the first time in Shorecrest High School history a Freshman wrestler has qualified for the state tournament.

Connor Block - 132lbs - (Team Captain) was able to finish at 6th place in a 12 man bracket despite a serious hand injury. With the top four placers advancing to the state tournament, Block is a second alternate.

Overall, 2016-2017 has been a great development year for Shorecrest Wrestling. There were three new volunteer coaches and five Freshman wrestlers figuring out all the great things this sport has to offer. Head Coach Brent Busby looks forward to strengthening the program for more Scot wrestlers next year.
