Wrestling: Shorewood boys second at subregionals

Monday, February 10, 2020

Devin Leach was the only wrestler to win his
match but the team came in second.

Shorewood wrestlers began their postseason journeys February 7-8, 2020 with the boys wrestling at Juanita High School and the girls at Chief Sealth High School. Both tournaments began on Friday afternoon and finished Saturday night.

The boys tournament was made up of the ten schools in the KingCo 3A and Wesco South 3A conferences.

The top five placers at each weight class advance to the Regional tournament next Saturday at Kelso High School against the best of the Greater Saint Helens League. 

As they have done all season the Thunderbirds relied upon their depth as they pinned their way to twelve wrestlers in the semifinals and at the top of the team scores by the end of Friday's wrestling. 

Saturday began with some heartbreaking losses and bright spots, too as Shorewood moved three wrestlers into the finals. In the consolation brackets the T-birds refused to give up. 

Although Shorewood only had one individual champion, Devin Leach at 152 pounds, they placed eleven competitors in the top five, and one more just missed advancing by taking sixth.

The whole team effort allowed the Thunderbirds to place second in the team scores, the best they have done in many years.

Girls at Chief Sealth
While the boys grappled at Juanita the girls had their own tournament at Chief Sealth.

Despite only having five wrestlers in the brackets they came in thirteen out of thirty-two schools.

Wrestling next weekend at the Regional tournament, hosted by Sedro-Woolley High School, will be sisters Cosette Lumsden, third at 105 pounds, and Sophia Lumsden, third at 110 pounds.
