Scoring change could give South Kitsap wrestling league title

South Kitsap’s wrestling team might have ended up winning the Narrows League 4A tournament title after all.

Following Saturday’s tournament at Foss High School in Tacoma, Yelm was awarded first place with 372 points, a half point ahead of runner-up South Kitsap (371.5).

South Kitsap athletic director Ed Santos said Wednesday that tournament officials discovered a scoring error made in a match that South Kitsap senior Brandon Forster won by major decision 12-4 instead of 10-4 as was scored on the bout sheet. Instead of earning four points, Forster was only awarded three points. The additional point gives the Wolves their first league tournament title since 2012.

South Kitsap coach Chad Nass said the tournament manager will have to rescore the whole tournament to see if other mistakes were made.

“I don’t know if they’ll announce anything,” Nass said. “… but, yeah, we won.”

Nass wasn’t exactly sure what official steps could be taken. Since the bout sheet was signed, it could be official.

“In 20 years of wrestling, never seen a tournament decided by half point,” Nass said.
