1:56 p.m.: Central Kitsap’s Alison Johnson and South Kitsap’s Amberlee Brasch both finished third in the girls tournament.
11:34 a.m.: Kingston’s Bobby Reece, a three-time defending champ, will go for No. 4 tonight as he becomes the third and final area wrestle to reach the finals at 170 in the 2A tourney. He put away Othello’s Jesus Montes with a pin in the second round. Teammate Aaron Dickson, a top seed, fell in the semifinals at 182. Tough blow for Dickson.
10:57 a.m.: Klahowya’s Brian Burchett punches his ticket to the 138-pound 2A finals with a 3-0 win over Colville’s Ian Cox. Meanwhile in the 4A tourney, Adam Lutovsky lost 16-7 to Central Valley’s Colton Orrino in the semis at 145.
10:39 a.m.: Kingston’s Peyton Reece is our first local into finals. She pinned Skyview’s Caitlin Horrocks in the third round in the 118-pound semifinals in the girls tournament. After not making state last year, Bobby Reece’s sophomore sister is having one heck of a run and will end her season in the championship round. … In the 2A boys tournament, Port Angeles’ Ozzy Swagerty fell to Michael Anderson of W.F. West (Chehalis) in the semifinals 11-7.
10:08 a.m.: Central Kitsap’s Alison Johnson, our first local semifinalist of the day, is denied a spot in the finals after getting pinned by Warden’s Levi Guerra in the second period. Guerra led the match 6-1 before getting the pin. Kingston’s Peyton Reece and Port Angeles’ Ozzy Swagerty are up next in about 15-20 minutes.
8:40 a.m.: Back here at the Tacoma Dome for Day 2 of Mat Classic. Everything gets settled today. Some accounting from Friday’s action. Out of 49 West Sound wrestlers who began the day, 23 are still alive today. I didn’t think the number was that high when I left last night, but it’s not as bad as it first appeared. I do know that some good wrestlers didn’t make it back today, including Central Kitsap’s Dominick Johnson, a regional champion, and North Mason’s Chase Davis, a regional champ last season. North Mason, in fact, saw all five of its kids knocked out in the consolation bracket. Bremerton also saw both of its wrestlers eliminated. That means coach Jeff Barton, who has led the Knights for 25 years, has coached his last match. He announced last month he is stepping down.
Here is a list of the wrestlers competing today:
Semifinalists: Adam Lutovsky (SK), Ozzy Swagerty (PA), Brian Burchett (Kla), Bobby Reece (King), Aaron Dickson (King), Alison Johnson (CK) and Peyton Reece (King).
Still alive for medals: Josh Criollos (CK), Brandon Forster (SK), Tristan Hartmann (SK), Amberlee Brasch (SK), Jack Miller (Bain), Shae Shoop (PT), Matt Cain (PT), Tre Toledo (Oly), Isaiah Rodenhurst (Oly), Geordyn Shinard (Oly), Umu Timoteo (Oly), Tyler Gale (PA), Matt Robbins (PA), Roberto Coronel (PA) and Josh Henden (King).
