It was an historic day Saturday at Shorewood High School. For the first time in the 28 year history of the Shoreline Invite wrestling tournament the two Shoreline teams swept the top two team trophies.

Shorecrest, coached by Brent Busby, took home a team title and Shorewood, coached by Derek Norton, placed second. The win was extra special for the Scots of Shorecrest because it was their first tournament team title in 18 years.

Shorecrest went into the finals with a narrow lead over the host Thunderbirds. Scot Thomas Rhodes continued his impressive freshman season with a big pin at 106 to kick off the finals. At 113 pounds the two schools faced off against each other as senior Roman Shadduck came out on top for Shorecrest with a second round pin of Thunderbird Kai Layton.

The two teams faced off against each other in two other finals matches. At 132 pounds Shorecrest’s Kaiya Conway built a big lead before surviving being tossed to his back in the final seconds to best Shorewood’s Curt Tanaka 13-10.

In the following match, 138 pounds, Shorewood got their first champion of the day as Kody Carpenter won his second consecutive Shoreline Invite with an 11-4 decision over Kelvin Schmidt of Shorecrest.

Shorewood’s only other champion came at 145 pounds as Devin Leach won his third tournament in a row with a first round pin over his opponent from Ingraham high school.

Shorecrest finished off the tournament with a fourth Champion as senior David Rivera picked up his third pin of the day to secure the heavyweight title.

The two teams have to wait until the end of the season to face off against each other in a dual meet. Shorecrest returns to Shorewood on Friday, January 25th in the final match of the season for both teams. Shorecrest will be hoping to end another drought as they have lost nine straight matches to their cross-town rivals.
