Orting High School Preview

By WSWA, 09/25/18, 9:45PM PDT


Placing 2nd at state last season, this young team returns a crew of Sophomores and Juniors that are ready to return to the podium and step up. Orting has a prestigious history that has allowed them to be Top 3 in the state for the past 13 years. Their team is young, hungry and eager to hoist the State Championship trophy over their heads.  With over half of their returners competing in Freestyle and Greco, a state title is within grasp.  In order to knock off returning State Champions White River and find themselves on top of the podium, Orting will have to rely on their depth and ability to have multiple state placers in many weight classes.  Will the Cardinals be able to make up the 60-point spread between them and White River last year, time will tell?

Connor Goucher 2nd at State (113)

Jake Utterback State alt (113)
