Prep wrestling: Hawks take third overall in Lynnwood Classic

While temperatures outside remained below freezing, wrestlers from Lynnwood, Mountlake Terrace, Meadowdale and Edmonds-Woodway high schools heated up the mat Saturday at the Lynnwood Classic, a 10-team tournament held at Lynnwood High School.

Terrace placed third in the team standings of the event with 132 points. E-W finished in fourth place while Lynnwood edged out Meadowdale for sixth place by one point.

The Royals, Hawks, Mavericks and Warriors all placed at least one wrestler in a weight class final on Saturday. Terrace’s Moussa Traore, Audre Seabrook and Reyne Mack won the 152-, 182- and 195-weight class titles respectively; Meadowdale’s Jesus Hernandez-Baez took the 170-pound weight crown and Lynnwood’s Luel Wolde grabbed the top spot in the 132-pound weight classification.

Edmonds-Woodway competed with a split squad as half of the Warriors’ team was in Bellingham on Saturday for the Graham Morin Invitational.

The Kamiak Knights took the team title at the Lynnwood Classic with a dominating performance of 189 points and 25 match wins — 22 by pinfall.
