South Whidbey wrestlers prepare for postseason

Four South Whidbey wrestlers are poised to advance past the 1A District 1 tournament Saturday, Feb. 8, without ever setting foot on a mat.

The district-wide field, which includes teams from Blaine, Mount Baker, Friday Harbor, Meridian and Nooksack Valley has several weight classes not fully fielded with eight grapplers. The top four advance to the tri-district tournament, also called the regional round.

“It’s going to be a quick tournament because there’s not a lot of kids in some of the weight classes,” said Falcon wrestling coach Jim Thompson.

Falcon wrestlers Seth Schille, Beck Davis, Trevor Miller and Pierce Jackson are all moving on in weights with four or fewer wrestlers.

Senior Andy Madsen is the top ranked 145-pound grappler. He may have tough competition, however, as the second-ranked wrestler is teammate Kyrell Broyles.
