WIAA wrestling regionals a casualty of the weather

We have breaking news into the Snoqualmie Valley Sports Journal newsroom.

The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association has just announced that all of the boys’ and girls’ wrestling regionals scheduled for tomorrow, including Cedarcrest’s and Mount Si’s regionals, have been canceled.

In a statement on the WIAA website, the state’s high school sports governing body announced the cancellations of the events “in the best interest of safety and equal opportunity for all participants.” As we have been telling you today, heavy snow is in the forecast and that was expected to make travel for both the Red Wolves and Wildcats boys to their regionals this weekend, in Washougal and Moses Lake respectively, a dicey proposition at best, and CHS’ girls event as well.

The association has announced they will develop a 32-entry format for each of the weight classes at Mat Classic, which would entail an additional round of competition next weekend at the Tacoma Dome. How this will impact Mount Si and Cedarcrest wrestlers remains to be seen as the brackets are not expected to be announced until early next week.

As things currently stand right now, we do not have any word on tomorrow’s Mount Si Wes-King 4A gymnastics district meet in Bothell; we have sent a note to Mount Si to get some info and will update you here and on Twitter when we get word back. Also, we also sent a note to Cedarcrest for similar info on tomorrow’s scheduled Northwest 2A District girls’ basketball game at Lynden. We’ll also update you if we get any word from the school.
