Prep Notebook: Champions crowned in wrestling and swimming

Pair of Wesco 3A girls soccer players sign with Grambling State

Regular-season dual meets in wrestling and swimming concluded last week, with both sports now turning their attention to the postseason.

Here’s a look at the conference champions from both sports:

Boys wrestling: Lake Stevens continued its Wesco 4A dominance, claiming its fourth outright conference crown in five years. The Vikings went 7-0 in league dual meets, extending their Wesco 4A win streak to 22.

Marysville Pilchuck claimed its third consecutive Wesco 3A North crown, finishing 6-0 in the talent-laden conference. The Tomahawks have won 18 consecutive Wesco 3A North dual meets.

Edmonds-Woodway rolled to the Wesco 3A South title with a 7-0 record in league dual meets.

Sultan beat Granite Falls last week to claim the North Sound Conference crown. It’s the seventh consecutive league title for the Turks.

Boys swimming: Kamiak rolled to its second consecutive Wesco South title with a decisive victory over Jackson last week in a showdown of unbeaten powerhouses. The Knights finished 9-0 in Wesco South dual meets, extending their conference win streak to 20.

Lake Stevens, which traveled for every meet this season because of construction on its home pool, claimed the program’s fifth consecutive Wesco North crown. The Vikings went 10-0 in conference dual meets, extending their Wesco North win streak to 48.

Soccer players sign with Grambling State

Edmonds-Woodway senior Michaela Danyo and Marysville Pilchuck senior Trina Davis have signed national letters of intent to play NCAA Division I women’s soccer at Grambling State University, according to a release last week from the Louisiana school.

Danyo collected 10 goals and five assists for the Warriors this past season. She helped Edmonds-Woodway claim the Wesco 3A/2A title and reach the Class 3A state quarterfinals.

Davis, an all-conference selection all four seasons at Marysville Pilchuck, starred for the Fiji women’s national team last year. She scored a team-high four goals to help Fiji qualify for the Oceania Football Confederation Women’s Nations Cup, where her team advanced to the tournament final and fell one win short of qualifying for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
