LAKEWOOD — With her fourth-place finish at the 2A Regional Tournament Feb. 11, Lakewood’s Allison Lawten qualified to compete in the upcoming Mat Classic in Tacoma on Feb. 17-18.

Lawten, a junior, competed in the 130-pound weight division.

Lakewood senior Brenda Rivera, who wrestled in the 100-pound division, finished in fifth place and is an alternate to the Mat Classic.

Wrestling in the boys 285-pound weight class, sophomore Tristan Nelson finished in fifth place and also qualified as an alternate to the Mat Classic.

“The competition was tough up there,” said Lakewood head coach Tom O’Hara. “It seems like all the weights that we were strong in, those were the weights in the tournament that were the toughest.”
