Woodinville wrestling will send five Falcons to Mat Classic XXV in the Tacoma Dome this weekend, including two alternates, based on results from the 4A Region III Wrestling Tournament held at Heritage High School in Vancouver, Wash., last Saturday.
Junior Ryan Christensen will compete at 182 pounds while junior Dalton Mann will wrestle at 138 and sophomore Cole Morrison will battle at 126.
Mann and Morrison finished third and fourth, respectively, at regionals.
Alternates, based on a fifth-place finish at regionals, are senior Connor McCaw at 145 and Everett Bingisser at 152.
Christensen, who finished second in state at 170 last year, is the odds-on favorite to bring home the title at 182.
If so, he’d become only the second Woodinville wrestler ever to win a state championship.
Kyle Komata brought home the crown in 2009 at 125 pounds
