Vashon’s own Colin McIntyre just returned from a very successful National Dual Meet tournament in Indianapolis, Indiana. Colin was representing the state in two tournaments and styles of wrestling: one in Greco-Roman, and the other in Freestyle. Team Washington, with the help of Colin, placed fifth in the Greco-Roman tournament and sixth in Freestyle, competing against 38 states.

“Colin is very studious and an incredibly hard worker,” Coach Per Lars Blomgren said. “His wrestling future is bright.”
