The Meadowdale Mavericks and Mountlake Terrace Hawks competed in their final multi-team tournament of the 2017-2018 regular season on Saturday as both squads hit the mat at the Lynden Invitational at Lynden High School.

The Hawks saw team co-captain Reyne Mack take the title in his weight division. Mack defeated Newport’s Thomas Lousebery 9-7 to win the 182-pound class division title match.

The Mavs earned the second-place team trophy and had two wrestlers claim weight division championships. Meadowdale’s Aria Zarei crushed Newport’s Matthew Dalton 16-0 in the championship match of the 132-pound division; the Mavs’ Ben Duong won the 170-pound division by slipping past Lynden’s Payton Scott in the title contest.

Both teams get back to Wesco League action on Tuesday, Jan. 23, when they face each other in a dual set for 7 p.m. at Meadowdale High School.

The 2017-2018 regular season ends for both teams on Thursday, Jan. 23; both squads will begin the postseason at sub-regional tournaments on Feb. 3 — the Mavs at Shorecrest High School and the Hawks at Cedarcrest High School.
