23 Raider wrestlers bound for state after regionals canceled


The regional wrestling tournament for state districts five and six was canceled last Friday, so all 23 Raider wrestlers who had qualified for the regional meet at Oroville are now going to the state tournament this week.

The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association announced Friday that all regional wrestling tournaments, including the the one the Raiders were to compete in the next day in Oroville, was canceled due to the snowy weather that caused highway closures over much of the state.

Since the tournaments never happened, all wrestlers who had qualified for regionals now qualify for state.

To accomodate for the large amount of wrestlers going to state, the brackets have been expanded from 16-entry brackets to 32.

The state Mat Classic is being held at the Tacoma Dome on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 15-16.
