When second is disappointing . . .

Our Bear wrestlers did great at Mat Classic XXV taking second place in state. In many years this would be a celebration, but after winning it last year the kids and coaches went in with high expectations. Unfortunately, they fell short of their goal.  We had three wrestlers make it to the final match in their weight class, but fell short of their goal of an individual championship.  They are Tim Whitehead, Gabe Boynay, and Matt Hopkins.  It looked as if Hopkins won with a take down in the first over time period, but the referee didn't give him the points resulting in a 2-1 heart breaking loss.  We also had two wrestlers take third, Ed Torres and Cruz Velasquez.

Our boy and girl basketball teams also played this weekend to see if they could advance to the state playoffs, but were unable to win so their seasons are over.  Both, however, did well getting into the regionals.      Also playing and performing this weekend were those Tahoma gymnasts and boy swimmers who qualified for state.  Thanks to all these athletes for their commitment to their sport and for representing our high school at these events.
