Mariner and Kamiak each crowned a champion at the District 1 Sub-Regional wrestling tournaments.

Mariner's Joseph Adee won the 145-pound title at the boys tournament Saturday, Feb. 8 at Monroe High School, while Kamiak's Diana Cantini captured the 110 title at the girls tournament at Squalicum High School.

Adee won by injury default in the finals over Mountain View's Joshua Troupe. The Mariner standout had a first-round bye and then won by technical fall (16-0) over Monroe's Jackson Dake. Adee then beat Monroe's Brian Zebley 13-4 in the semifinals.

Cantini, who placed second at 110 at last year's state tournament, prevailed 9-4 over Cascade's Cascade's Claudia Rojas-Guzman in the 110 finals. Teammate Tina Tran finished second at 100.

Kamiak was well on its way to winning a second title when senior Richard Chung suffered an arm injury after being slammed to the mat by Lake Stevens' Aiden Eberlein at the 4:28 mark in the 113 finals. Chung, who was leading 11-4 at the time of the injury, was unable to continue the match and finished second.

"He was definitely going to win," Kamiak coach Bryan Stelling said. "It was very unfortunate."

As of Monday, Stelling said it was unclear whether Chung would be able to wrestle at this week's regional tournament. Chung was scheduled to see a specialist later this week.

Three other Knights advanced to the finals and all three ended up placing second. Odin Nieshe lost by technical fall to Lake Stevens' Brayden Bowers in the 126 finals and Barrett Stengele was pinned by Lake Stevens' Wyatt Springer in the 152 finals. Teammate Ian Faucher lost by fall to Monroe's Paul Bischoff in the 182 finals.

"We expected all three boys to make the finals," Stelling said.

Sam Serati, who came in seeded sixth, ended up taking third place at 132. Serati edged Jackson's Larry Georger 6-5 in the third/fourth place match.

Mariner's Jose Zamora Solorzano also placed third at 113. Zamora Solorzano defeated Jackson's Jonah Justice 7-3 in the third/fourth place match.
