Mount Si returns from Mat Classic with mixed results; Harrison takes fifth in state

After an incredibly successful, undefeated season, the Mount Si wrestlers had mixed results at the State Championships on Feb. 16 and 17.

Head Coach Tony Schlotfeldt said that the wrestlers had some very close, tough matches but ultimately were not able to win any of their individual tournaments. Duncan Harrison, 138 pounds, made it the farthest of the Mount Si team, all the way to the semifinals of his weight class and ended up taking fifth place.

“We were really excited to see Duncan make it to the semifinals,” Schlotfeldt said. “He ran into a very tough wrestler from Sumner that he wasn’t able to get past into the finals. After that, he lost a close match in the last 20 seconds to Hansen from Auburn Mountain View. This was the same wrestler he beat his first match. Duncan kept a positive attitude going into the fifth, sixth placing match and was able to come from behind to beat his opponent from Union.”

Spencer Marenco, 145 pounds, won his first match against Decatur, but lost to the eventual champion from Graham Kapowsin High School. His second loss was to Central Valley. The three other wrestlers, Kinsey Steskal, Tryon Kaess, and Conor Holt all had close matches, but lost their first two matches, he said.

Despite the mixed results, Schlotfeldt was proud of the fantastic season the team had this year. “We fell short of our goals of placing every wrestler,” he said. “But I’m proud of the accomplishments the team experienced this season.”
