Shorecrest Wrestling Recap
By: Sean Rhodes
After a prolonged Holiday/Omicron break, the Shorecrest Wrestling team is back on the mats!
The Scots defeated the Mountlake Terrace Hawks 52-23 in last night’s dual meet. Shorecrest now has a 1-1 record on the dual season in WESCO south and a 3-1 record overall.
There were nine head-to-head matchups in the varsity competition. Mountlake Terrace captured four victories, while the Scots took home five. The remaining points were picked up by forfeits in the Hawks’ line-up.
Shorecrest senior captain Thomas Rhodes started off the action scoring six points for the Scots by pinning MLT Senior Captain Jacob Arevalo in the 152lb division. Jacob Lougee (Senior, 145lbs) was able to pin his opponent in 37 seconds. Peter Grimm (Sophomore,170lbs) was awarded a major decision (13-1) against his opponent. Despite giving up weight at the 132lb division, Joseph Martinez (Junior, 126lbs) was able to get an exciting third round pin and chalk up six more team points for the Scots as well. Not to be outdone, Max Rutledge (160lbs) picked up a pin in overtime against the Hawks’ Cameron Merkle.
In addition to the boys varsity action, Tuesday’s dual featured four girls’ exhibition matches as well. The Scots fared well in those match-ups, highlighted by dominating performances from Ana Reed (Junior) and a come from behind, third round pin by Rebecca Rhodes (Sophomore).
Mountlake Terrace showed great sportsmanship throughout the entire meet. Thanks for hosting us Hawks wrestling team. Good luck the rest of the year.
