The regular season for winter sports has come to an end, and it is now time for post-season events. The Highline girls and boys wrestling team headed to their sub-regional tournament this past weekend. The girls competed at Spanaway on Friday and Saturday, and the boys competed at Eatonville this past Saturday. The girl’s gymnastic team headed to the 2A SPSL League Championship at Auburn Mountainview last weekend weekend.
For the wrestling team, going into their tournament, they were all eager to win and conquer. According to one of the boys wrestlers, Justin Nguyen, he said the team has “been practicing hella hard and hoping for the best.” Personally, Justin Nguyen felt “nervous” but also “excited and confident” coming to the tournament, ranking first in the 2A SPSL league. According to the tournament, Justin Nguyen dominated and finished second, letting him advance to districts.
Going into the postseason league championship for the Highline Pirates girls gymnastics, they held a record of twenty-five victories to zero losses. Highline High School’s gymnastic team all season long has only been taking dubs and no “L’s.” The team fought hard and had each others’ backs, which helped the lady Pirates bring the championship league title home.
This weekend was a busy weekend for some of our winter sport athletes. All the Pirates competing in the postseason has made a name for our school and showed everyone what Pirates can do and what we are made of.
