Four Mount Si wrestlers advanced to the Mat Classic XXXII state tournament this weekend at the Tacoma Dome.

They are: Mark Marum (106), second at regionals; Connor Knowles (152), third; Jaeden Durham (160), second; and Aynslee Hester (140), third. Alternates are Braedon Haynie (132) and Brody Belaire (138).

Seven Mount Si wrestlers put in strong showings at the 4A KingCo championships and advanced to the regional tournament.

Tops for the Wildcats — who took fourth in the team standings — were: Marum (106, first), Tryon Kaess (113, first, most outstanding wrestler in 4A lower weight), Durham (160, first), Haynie (132, third), Belaire (138, fourth), Knowles (152, second) and Luke Harper (170, second).

Hester took third at sub-regionals.

Prior to regionals, Kaess fell ill and was scratched from the tournament, according to coach Tony Schlotfeldt.
