LACEY Darrington wrestling continued its strong showing this season by sending 10 wrestlers through the Westside Regional and on to state in Tacoma. The Washington State Mat Classic XX will be Feb. 15-16 and the Loggers will have a large contingent taking place in the two-day event.
Conner Rounds won his match with Tacoma Baptists Spencer Havens to clinch the 215 pound title. Johnny Loughnan came in second in the 119 pound division, losing to Concretes Monte Benjamin in the final. Loughnan has defeated Benjamin three times this year and may get another shot at him in the state tournament.
Mathias Metzger, Paden Newberry, and Kody Bryson all finished third in their respective divisions, good enough to make the trip to state. John Fenstermaker and Rich Groh both placed fourth at 119 and 152 respectively. In the heavyweight division both Moe Hyde and Scott Regelbrugge will advance to Tacoma as third and fourth-place finishers. The Loggers also placed third as a team in the meet.
