Lake Stevens keeps 17-year wrestling streak intact

Coach Brent Barnes tested his young Lakes Stevens wrestling team Wednesday night against one of the top programs in Oregon, Rosebug High School.

Roseburg is Oregon’s defending 6A champion. Lake Stevens is Washington’s defending 4A champion (both are the largest classifications).

The Vikings were able to keep a 17-year home winning streak alive with a tiebreaker victory. Roseburg, which beat Lake Stevens in Oregon last year, tied the match at 33 with a major decision at 152, the final bout of the night. But Lake Stevens had four six-point wins (three pins and a forfeit) to three for Roseburg (three pins) to gain the tiebreaker advantage.

It was a special night for Barnes in more ways than one. His son, Burke, was inducted into the Lake Stevens Hall of Fame prior to the match. Burke was a four-time state champion from 1999-2002.
