Success at the Regionals

Report from Head Coach Scott Norton  (Feb. 12, 2017)

This weekend we traveled to Coos Bay, Oregon for the national qualifier.  Highline was led by heavyweight Miguel Morales who knocked off the #1 seeded wrestler in the semi-finals, and then secured his first Region Championship with a win over Timothy Smith of Southwestern Oregon in the finals. 

 Jessie Torres, 125, also made the finals by knocking off the #6 ranked wrestler in the country Garrett White, in the semis.  He then lost to the #2 ranked wrestler in the country in the finals from Clackamas.  Jessie had a good tournament.

 Andrew Ramirez at 141, beat Martin Mitchell for the eighth time to move to the finals.  Unfortunately, he was not able to solve the puzzle of #1 ranked Kurt Mode in the finals.  Andrew needs to be first and get on the attack from the get go.  He is doing way too much standing around and waiting to see what Mode is doing.  Hopefully, he can make the correct adjustments before nationals. 

We had our fourth qualifier in Mario Luevano 184.  Mario lost a tight match to Hazel-west of Clackamas in the semis 8 to 5.  But then turned around and knocked off the #8 ranked wrestler who he lost to 2 times in Tyler Webley. 

Our last qualifier was Josh Wessels at 197.  He lost in the semis, but upset #6 Nick Maximov of Clackamas in overtime to finish 3rd.  Josh lost to him twice previously. 

We had a 6th wrestler who should be going in Tino Nieves.  I feel bad for Tino Nieves 149, who finished 3rd.  He should be going to the national tournament but it comes down to a coaches vote.  Unfortunately, he has only wrestled a couple of times.  So he didn't get the nod.  He is an alternate though, if any of the wrestlers in his weight get injured he will go. 

I felt our guys wrestled real well this weekend. Each national qualifier seemed to knock off at least one ranked wrestler. Our guys are getting close to peaking and are moving in the right direction.  We will start to prepare for the nationals in Council Bluffs, Iowa in two weeks.

Solid Road Win
(Feb. 22)  Highline earned a rare road win this season by edging past the host Green River Gators 58-53 (stats). The Thunderbirds showed a balanced offensive attack, with Aileen Kaye,  Jasmine Hansgen, and Ariel Miller sharing scoring honors with 10 points each. Anna Cook had her usual solid game with eight points and a team high 12 rebounds.  The Gators were led by Alexis Gleason's 22 points.  The win puts Highline at 6-6 in league play and keeps its flickering playoff hopes alive.  The team has an away game at Pierce on Feb. 25 before closing out the regular season at home against Tacoma on March 1.

Orme and Wilson Carry Highline Again

(Feb. 22)  Highline continued a late season surge in search of a playoff spot with a 87-84 (stats) road win over the Green River Gators. It was the Thunderbirds' third straight win. The duo of Jamie Orme (28 points and 17 rebounds) and Val Wilson (26 points) carried the T-Birds once again; during the winning streak Orme has averaged 20 points and 13 rebounds while Wilson has averaged 27 points from some torrid 3-point shooting.  Also contributing to Highline's win over Green River was Jeremi Hanks with 12 points and eight rebounds and Austin Anderson's 10 points and seven assists.The Gators were led by Kaelin Crane (26 points, seven rebounds, six assists) and Cole Luckett (23 points, 11 rebounds).  

Highline now stands at 6-6 in league play with two games left, at Pierce (Feb. 25) and closing out the regular season against Tacoma at home on March 1.
