Four Scot wrestlers punched their ticket to state Monday at the 3A region 3 tournament at Foss HS in Tacoma:

  • George Fernandez (Junior) - 113lbs - 4th place
  • Joseph Martinez (Junior) - 120lbs - 5th place
  • Thomas Rhodes (Senior) - 145lbs - Champion
  • Peter Grimm (Sophomore) - 160lbs - 5th place

George Fernandez, 4th 113lbs

The “fire in the belly” award at the 3A Region 3 tournament in Tacoma on Saturday goes to George Fernandez.

George qualified for regionals last week at 3rd place in the district tournament and didn’t have a great seed starting out. He lost his second match, which put him in the consolation bracket. Undeterred, George fought his way through five back to back matches against highly ranked opponents (winning one match in overtime) and qualified for state at 4th place!

Peter Grimm, 5th 160lbs
