MSHS wrestling, gymnastics wrapup

Mount Si High School’s wrestling team scored a pair of wins last night in a double dual at Newport High School in Bellevue hosted by the Knights.

The Wildcats eked out a 45-36 victory over Newport. Winners for Mount Si included Spencer Marenco (126 lbs.), Corey Seaman (170), Mason Marenco (152), Kurtis Olson (160), Henry Foster (145), Andrew Harris (220) and Brennan Dalgleish (195). All with the exception of Dalgleish’s win were by pin.

Mount Si routed Inglemoor 48-16. The Marenco’s, along with Harrison, Foster, Olson, Dalgleish and Harris were among the winners, with most of those victories coming by pin.
The Wildcats now start postseason action, with the Kingco 4A meet coming next weekend at Juanita High School in Kirkland.

Wildcat gymnasts score win on Senior Night
Mount Si’s gymnastics team looks like a team that will contend for a trip perhaps to the 4A state meet this season, after closing out the regular season last night with another strong win on Senior Night.

The Wildcats outlasted Issaquah 164.9-159.35. Leading the way was senior Abby Weber, among the seniors honored last night for their four years in the Mount Si program. Weber and teammate Emi Yoshikawa tied for second in the all-around, both leading the Wildcats. Both athletes scored 33.2, with Weber’s headline event being the vault, where she scored a 9.2 and finished as the runner-up in that event, while Yoshikawa’s 9.2 on beam won her that event and propelled her to her solid night. She also had a 9.15 on the floor.

Floor exercise saw a sizeable number of Mount Si athletes earn 9.0 scores or better. In addition to Yoshikawa’s 9.15, Samantha Holmes scored 9.2, Maggie Kenow pocketed a 9.35, Lauren McCallum scored 9.05 and Shelby Johnson scored an even 9.0.

Mount Si moves into postseason with the Kingco meet next Saturday. The Wildcats will host the meet at Mount Si High School, with Mount Si’s gymnasts scheduled to compete in the evening session between 6:30 and 8:00 p.m. Expect Kenow, Weber, Yoshikawa, Hokmes and Johnson to all compete in the event.
