The Shorewood boys competed in the WESCO South tournament on Saturday, February 4, 2023 at Shorecrest High School. The district tournament is the first step of the postseason, with Regionals next week, and then the State tournament February 17 and 18, 2023 at the Tacoma Dome.

The Stormrays wrestled tough and advanced 11 wrestlers to Regionals.

Highlighting the day were league champions Isaac Van Horn at 145 pounds and Hunter Tibodeau at 220 pounds. 

The happiest surprise was 145 pound sophomore Jonathan Burkholder upsetting multiple opponents as he made a run to the finals before falling to Van Horn and ending in 2nd place.

In addition to a 3rd place team finish, Senior Hunter Tibodeau was also honored at the WESCO South Outstanding Wrestler of the Year.
