Athletes of the Week for 2-22

Good Monday morning, and happy President’s Day. Quick note for you and that is with the mid-winter break ongoing for both Valley school districts and the winter sports season over, our news this week will primarily consist of college coverage, so we’ll be a bit more limited this week in news. It is also with that that we close out our winter sports coverage this morning with our final round of Athletes of the Week for the winter. We’ll be back with these in about three weeks or so, in the middle of March, after spring sports gets underway.

Boys for these and we hit the mat.

CEDARCREST – As we’ve already recognized one of the Red Wolves’ three state Mat Classic entrants – Cameron Rose – we recognize the other two today. Caleb Lay and Parker McBride both also made it to the Tacoma Dome this season for Red Wolves wrestling, with McBride taking third at 113 lbs. in the 2A tournament on Saturday. Lay did not place, as he was eliminated Friday, but he qualified at 170 lbs. and represented his school and community well in the tournament. As for Rose, he, too, did not make it to Saturday, but also did his best and represented his school and community strong in Tacoma.

MOUNT SI – We’ve recognized Mason Marenco and Brennan Dalgleish already in this segment, and both did well this past weekend, each placing in the top five in their weight classes in the 4A meet (Marenco at 170 lbs., Dalgleish at 220). But we haven’t given a shout-out to the third state entrant from Mount Si this season, and we do so now. Duncan Harrison (145) had a strong postseason, doing very well at both the league and regional competitions, and carried that into Tacoma. While he did not make it to Saturday competition, Harrison left it all out on the mat in each of his matches, giving his best and representing the Wildcats very well. As a senior, he’ll be graduating this spring and leaving some huge shoes to fill for whoever takes his place next season.
