The local 4A wrestling programs were well-represented at the 25th annual Mat Classic Feb. 15-16 where 14 area wrestlers battled the state’s top athletes for a chance to medal in high school’s biggest tournament.
After taking second at the Region 3 Tournament the weekend before, Skyline High School wrestlers filled eight of the 14 weight classes at the state championship. By the time the two-day tournament was about over, the excitement of having eight wrestlers make it to the final 16 had taken its toll on Gus Kiss’ vocal cords. By 2 p.m. Saturday, the Skyline coach’s voice was all but gone.
“We’re really proud of the fact that we brought eight kids and one alternate,” he said in an almost whisper. “It’s a culmination of hard work and dedication, and it’s nice to see the end result.”

Seeded No. 1 in the Crown division, the Skyline Spartans came out with a strong defense. Senior guards Rachel Shim and Lacey Nicholson were glued to two of the Bothell Cougars top scorers, Randi Dixon and Erin Burns, and together with their teammates held the Cougars’ offense to only two points during regular play in the first quarter.
