Eight wrestlers from Shorecrest High School qualified for regionals at the 3A Division Wesco South District Tournament in Edmonds on Saturday, February 3rd.  The top four placers in each of the 14 weight brackets from this tournament will compete next week in Federal Way at the WIAA 3A Region 3 tournament in a quest to earn a chance to compete at the State Championships in the Tacoma Dome on February 17th.

The Shorecrest wrestling team wasn't able to fill a few weight classes this year, which affected the team's ability to successfully compete in dual meets throughout the season against tough Wesco South district rivals like Edmonds Woodway HS, Lynnwood HS and Shorewood HS. However, the team does boast a solid core of middle weight wrestlers that were able to earn top spots on the district podium yesterday. 

Shorecrest High School Regional Qualifiers:

  • 1st Place at 157lbs - Peter Grimm, 12th grade, Senior Captain, (29 wins and 7 losses on the season)
  • 1st Place at 190lbs - Carter Nichols, 11th grade, (31 wins, 5 losses)
  • 1st Place at 150lbs - Owen Watson, 11th grade, (14 wins, 5 losses)
  • 2nd Place at 138lbs - Kenneth Adams Jr., 11th grade, (24 wins, 13 losses)
  • 3rd Place at 132lbs - Avi Wylen, 10th grade (27 wins, 7 losses)
  • 3rd Place at 126lbs - Kaiju Fergerson, 12th grade, Senior Captain, (24 wins, 11 losses)
  • 4th Place at 150lbs - Karim Gabobe, 11th grade (8 wins, 9 losses, First year wrestler)
  • 5th Place/Alternate at 215lbs - Gabe King, 9th grade (*alternate goes to regionals in case their is a vacancy in the weight bracket)

In addition to the boys wrestling team, Becca Rhodes (12th grade, 110lbs) on the SCHS girls' wrestling team also qualified for regionals on Friday, February 2nd. The girls' district meet qualified up to 6 placers. Becca qualified at 6th place and Lily Fredericks (12th grade, 125lbs, 8th place) just missed the qualifying cut off.
