Seven Hazen wrestlers place at Hurricane Harris Invites

Highlanders open dual meet schedule this week

The Hazen Highlander wrestling team competed this past Saturday at the competed at the Hurricane Harris Invitational at Decatur High School and placed seven wrestlers on the podium.

Hazen was led by three-time state returner Tyson Mowrey at 132 pounds and two-time state placer Raven Svenson at 170, who both pinned their way through their respective brackets.

State Returner Mario Wesa took second place at 145, falling only to Dominic Damon who beat him in last year’s mat classic. Cornelius Ha at 132 and Angela Ortiz at 135 each finished third in their weight classes. Georgina Gomez at 115 and Hazel Parada at 170 both took fourth while Kevin Klein placed fifth at 145 pounds.

According to coaches, the team performed well and the team scores didn’t reflect that Hazen entered multiple athletes in the same weight class.

The team also wrestled well as a whole. The prior weekend Hazen competed at the Edmonds Invite and only Tyson and Raven found their way to the podium, though according to coaches, several Highlanders were wrestling at higher weights than their actual competition weight.

Hazen opened its dual meet schedule on Wednesday against Kentwood, too late for this edition of the Reporter. The Highlanders also travel to Bremerton on Saturday to compete in the Hammerhead Invitational.
