Pair of highly ranked Vikings don't wrestle at district tourney

MONROE -- Snohomish leads the Wesco 4A District Wrestling Tournament going into the quarterfinals but the top spot is still very much up for grabs.
Things might have looked different going into the weekend if Lake Stevens' lineup had been complete, but two of the Viking's top-seeded wrestlers didn't participate. Dakota Reynolds, ranked third in the state at 113 pounds, and Jesse Peterson, ranked second at 120 pounds, were missing from the brackets.
Monroe head coach Mike Pine said there was no reason given for the wrestlers' absence. Lake Stevens head coach Brent Barnes could not be reached for comment.
After the first day, the top three teams are within 20 points of one another with Snohomish (93) leading Lake Stevens (82) and Edmonds-Woodway (73.5). Marysville Pilchuck is just six points behind of that at 67.5.
This surprising turn of events was seemingly the only one in what was an otherwise predictable start to the tournament, according to Snohomish head coach Rob Zabel, who confirmed that the wrestlers expected to advance did so.
The tournament continues today at 10 a.m. at Monroe High School.
