The Ingraham Wrestlers battled through the Regional tournament Feb 10th at Nathan Hale high school. They qualified five wrestlers for the state tournament February 16 & 17 at the Tacoma dome. Congratulations to Tre Harstad, Connor Richardson, Gabriel Liau, Simion Mayo and Adriel Liau on their hard work! Go Rams!
Ingraham High School Wrestling will be hosting Spring/Summer practices in the lower gym through the rest of the school year and summer. The current practice schedule can be found outside of Coach Carter’s Room (rm 121), Coach Dylan’s Room (Rm 120), Coach Elvig’s Office, Ms. Hedeen’s Room rm (100), and the Student Success Center.
All athletes who are interested in wrestling are encouraged to attend.
More enduringly than any other sport, wrestling teaches self-control and pride. Some have wrestled without great skill - none have wrestled without pride.
Ingraham advanced 12 wrestlers on to the state tournament at the Tacoma dome this last week, a school record. Of the twelve, 4 advanced to make the blood round on the second day placing two of our Ram wrestlers in the 32 man bracket. Simion Mayo-Carrillo battled hard to capture an 8th place finish, and Diego Enriquez-Mayer captured a 6th place finish in the Tacoma dome.
Placing two wrestlers at the state tournament is another school record!
The Ingraham Wrestling team placed 23rd overall at the tournament and met their goal this year of finishing in the top 25 at the Tacoma dome!
Adriel Liau is the Washington State Academic State Champion! Congratulations on the incredible season, Ingraham wrestlers!
