Wrapping up a great Wrestling Season

January 23, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

The Bears Wrestling team has continued to dominate competition while striving to get better each day and give best efforts. The team is coming off double victories this week as they head into the final stretch of the regular season and make preparations to peak during our post season run towards a league, regional and state championship.  Last Wednesday the Bears kept their 4 year SPSL N dual meet winning streak strong ( 29-0 in last 4 yrs) by defeating Kentwood. Both the varsity and JV had an excellent showing.  We got big wins on jv from Wade Whitton and John Sawin and on varsity Todd Link sparked a scoring rally that saw the Bears win seven matches in a row and secure the victory.

On Saturday the Bears were on the prowl again as they went to work against some of the toughest wrestling teams in the state at the 25th annual CK Matman at Central Kitsap HS. The Bears put together a great day of wrestling and won the tournament by over twenty points defeating  second place local rivals and returning 3A state champs Enumclaw High School. The Bears had 13 placers with 7 in the finals. Todd Link, Tim Whitehead, Cruz Velasquez, Jesse Vaughan, Steve Hopkins, Garret Autry, and Matt Hopkins all were finalist with Steven Hopkins bringing home an individual title to lead a full team effort.

This week the Bears are back in action with a double dual vs Mt. Rainier and Auburn Riverside on Wednesday at ARHS and the 11th annual 16 team THS Mat Classic at THS this Saturday. Next week the regular season comes to a close as the Bears head to AHS on Wednesday the 25th for the SPSL N district dual meet championship and then a challenge match at THS against longtime rival Enumclaw HS on Friday night.

Friday the 27th will not only be Sr. Night but the BATTLE OF THE BONE. Both EHS and THS meet regularly to see which South King County team is the true Dual Meet Champion of King County as the two teams fight for the honor of taking home a 4 foot cow bone trophy that the winning team takes home to paint with team colors. Battle of the Bone is going to be a BLACK OUT NIGHT for the THS faithful and we ask that you come dressed in black and ready to get loud as you cheer on the Bears to a final home victory in our gym for the 2011-2012 season. The JV starts at 6 and Varsity will be at 7:30.

Go Bears!
