Prep sports championships: Wrestling, swimming seasons come to a close for Hawks

The 2016-2017 prep wrestling and boys swim seasons came to a close over the Feb. 17-18 weekend with Mountlake Terrace High School well represented at the two sports’ state championships.

Terrace’s Reyne Mack and Pavel Oliferovskiy each earned podium finishes Saturday at Mat Classic XXIX, the WIAA state wrestling championships staged at the Tacoma Dome. Mack placed fourth in the 2A 195-pound weight class while Oliferovskiy grabbed sixth place in the 2A 152-pound weight division.

Hawks Michael Marquez and Aundre Seabrook also competed at Mat Classic XXIX, each picking up a victory during first day of competition on Friday, but unable to survive their brackets to Saturday’s matches.

As a team, Terrace finished 23rd among the 67 2A schools that qualified wrestlers to the state championships.

At the King County Aquatics Center in Federal Way, Hawks Alexander Bogatyrev, Zach Haroian, Sean St. Jacques and Ravy Phan were among the competitors at the 2A state swim championships on Friday and Saturday.

Bogatyrev, a freshman, earned Terrace’s only team point at the meet with a 16th place finish in the 100 yard breaststroke final on Saturday.

Haroian finished 21st in the 21st in preliminaries of 50 Yard Freestyle raced on Friday, then joined his teammates for two relays — the Hawks placed 18th in the preliminaries of 400 Yard Free Relay and 19th in preliminaries of 200 Medley Relay on Friday.
