Coach: Scott Schroyer
Last Year: Finished eighth in the Class 2A NWC standings and 12th overall with a 0-6 conference record. ... Placed 11th at the 2A Regional Tournament and advanced two wrestlers to state. ... Finished 26th at the state tournament with 25 points and had Dante Gray place third at 182 and Carson Eiswald place eighth at 152.
Wrestlers to watch: Evan Villalobos (Sr., 138); Titi Lamositele (Sr., 285); Devin Robins (Sr., 285); Steven Yazzie (Jr., 132); Erik Lane (Sr. 160-170); Jose Ramirez (Jr. 145-152)
Outlook: The Mariners finished off 2012 strong by posting a 7-4 record at state. All indications point to Sehome carrying over that momentum. Seniors Evan Villalobos, Devin Robins and Erik Lane give the Mariners a wealth of experience and senior Titi Lamositele, who is somewhat new to wrestling, was a handful last year for reigning and graduated Mount Baker heavyweight state champion Alec Postlewait. Coach Scott Schroyer said top to bottom his group is fairly solid. Juniors Steven Yazzie and Jose Ramirez are strong lower middleweights, and Schroyer said a number of promising freshmen have entered the program, which will undoubtedly benefit Sehome's lower weight classes. "I think we should be fairly solid in duals and, when it comes time, I think we'll have some kids who will score points in the postseason. We're just talking about getting better every day. The kids are working really hard."
