Winning isn't everyting in Lake Stevens' wrestling program

LAKE STEVENS — For as much winning as the Lake Stevens wrestling program has done in coach Brent Barnes' tenure with the Vikings, he insists that he and his staff talk very little about winning and losing in the practice room.“Our overall philosophy is not about winning and losing,” he said. “We don't allow that to get in the way of getting better and enjoying the sport. We're very careful about the vocabulary we use with the kids and try to get them to live in the moment and develop camaraderie.”It certainly has paid dividends in terms of trophies.Lake Stevens won the Class 4A team title at Mat Classic last season for the second consecutive season and has topped the state's largest classification six times since 2005-06 and nine times since 1998-99.The squad that is aiming for a third consecutive team title this season will be headlined by junior Michael Soler, who is looking for a personal three-peat to go along with the team's, and senior Cody Vigoren, also a returning state champion.Soler would become Lake Stevens' first three-time state champion since Josh Heinzer (2008-2010) should he conquer the field at 132 pounds.It will be a sizable jump in weight class for Soler, who competed at 106 pounds as a freshman and 113 last year as a sophomore.“I'm not too worried about it,” said Soler, whose older brother Eric won a pair of state titles for the Vikings. “I wasn't trying to go up in weight, but I grew and spent a lot of time in the weight room this summer. I'll be able to do the same things I would normally do at the higher weight.”Barnes said Soler's insatiable desire to improve and learn the craft of wrestling have served him well in his first two seasons at Lake Stevens.“He's a true student of the sport, and you're not going to find anyone who enjoys the process more than Michael Soler,” Barnes said. “Moving up to 132 will be another challenge for him, but he's been dealing with pressure and expectations his whole life. He's a competitor and a gamer. He knows that you win some and lose some, and he'll have opportunities beyond high school wrestling.”Vigoren, who will wrestle at 195 pounds again this season but may occasionally bump up to 220 if the team needs him to, already has secured his wrestling future, signing with the University of Wyoming for next season. A longtime wrestler and baseball player, Vigoren only recently dedicated himself to the mat year-round.“He's really coming into his own,” Barnes said of Vigoren. “He's so physical, and such a great leader with great character.”Vigoren said that wrestling in such a tradition-rich program as Lake Stevens doesn't add any extra pressure to whatever he already puts on himself, but provides benchmarks for the future.“I don't really look at it as extra pressure but as something to look forward to,” he said.Vigoren would like to work on getting to opponents' legs more this year, and being able to do so will widen his repertoire of moves when he's wrestling on his feet.“I want to be able to take down anyone,” he said.The Vikings finished third over the weekend at the prestigious Sidney Eagle Invitational in Montana, placing behind the hosts and Poway High School of California.Barnes has put together a very competitive schedule for the Vikings that will see them wrestle dual meets against Class 4A powers Moses Lake and Tahoma, as well as out-of-state programs such as Hermiston (Ore.).Lake Stevens also will compete at the Doc Buchanan Invitational in Clovis, Calif. on Jan. 9-10, an event Barnes called one of the top five tournaments in the United States.

 Soler, Vigoren win individual titles as Vikings edge Moses Lake 
(Herald Article)

TACOMA — With one sweep of the leg in the final 10 seconds of Saturday's 113-pound 4A state-championship match, Lake Stevens sophomore Michael Soler delivered back-to-back state championships — twice.

Not only did Soler's thrilling 6-5 victory over Moses Lake's Fernando Leyva earn him his second-consecutive state championship, he also earned the Vikings back-to-back team championships and their third title in four seasons.
The Vikings edged Moses Lake 133 to 116½.

"It was great," Lake Stevens head coach Brent Barnes said. "I know that Michael has felt a lot pressure over the past year being a returning state champion and he's worked really hard. I know that was a big moment for him and it was a big moment for us."

Soler trailed 5-3 in the final period, but rallied with an escape with less than a minute remaining in the match and scored on a two-point takedown with less than five seconds on the clock to clinch the championship.

"We work that in practice all the time," Soler said. "You've got 10 seconds left and you've got to get to a shot. I just thought about it and thought about the team and had to get it."

Lake Stevens had a comfortable lead heading into Saturday's championship matches, but Moses Lake had just earned five points for Trey Long's victory over his teammate Cooper McCullough in the 106-pound final. The Chiefs could have drawn to even closer had Leyva hung on to beat Soler. Instead, the Vikings are champions again.

So far in Soler's brief high-school career, he has lost to just one wrestler from Washington State. It just so happens the loss was to Leyva.

Soler got revenge on Saturday. More importantly, he got his second state championship.

"Last year, it was awesome because it was my first year winning it," Soler said. "But this year there was just so much more on the line. The kid beat me earlier in the year. I had that going through my head. I knew the team counted on me. It was amazing."

The Vikings had three wrestlers in the finals on Saturday, but needed just one victory in those three matches to clinch the team championship. Soler was the first to get the opportunity, but confident the Vikings would get at least one, Barnes and his staff didn't discuss it with Soler.

"All we had to do was win one of those three finals and we knew we were going to get at least one," Barnes said. "We didn't talk about it with Michael. They're smart enough to figure out the scoring themselves, but I didn't want to him to carry that burden."

Viking senior Noah Cuzzetto, who won two state titles while at Edmonds-Woodway, failed in his bid to become a three-time state champion, losing to Union's Junior Godinho 6-2 in overtime. But the Vikings were still able to celebrate one more individual title when 195-pounder Cody Vigoren pinned Lewis and Clark's Andrew Backlund.

"It's just a great way to end the tournament," Barnes said. "We lost a tough one with Noah at 132. That hurts, but Cody capped off a great season."

Bonus points help Lake Stevens take first-day lead


Six Lake Stevens wrestlers advance to semifinals as the Vikings score 70 points, 14.5 ahead of Tahoma.


By Aaron Lommers, Herald Writer

TACOMA — The Lake Stevens wrestling team is no stranger to winning state championships, that’s why it was a shock to see them come in second at last weekend’s regional championships. Friday though, the Vikings were back to their old tricks. Lake Stevens advanced eight of its 11 wrestlers to the quarterfinals and six of those eight advanced to today’s semifinals.

At the day’s end, the Vikings were in first place with 70 points, 14.5 points ahead of Tahoma and in striking distance of the state championship for what would be a second consecutive season and the third time in four years.

“You never get used to winning state championships,” Lake Stevens head coach Brent Barnes said. “Each year is different and you can’t help but get excited just as much for the next year.”

Michael Soler (113 pounds), Tyler Headland (113), Alex Rodorigo (120), Garrett Gershmel (120), Jake Douglas (126), Noah Cuzzetto (132), Logan Johnson (160) and Cody Vigoren (195) all won their opening-round matches. Soler, Rodorigo, Douglas, Cuzzetto, Johnson and Vigoren went on to win in the quarterfinals.

“We started out the morning with a great round and then we just followed it up (in the) evening,” Barnes said. “You couldn’t ask for more than (having) six guys in the semis, that’s great. We got some pins too, which always helps.”

Soler, the defending state champion at 106 pounds, started slow in his quarterfinal match against Davis’ Ramiro Ortiz, but came on strong in the second period and scored a pin for the Vikings with 0.3 seconds remaining.

“I was watching the clock as I was pinning him,” Soler said. “I knew I would have to thrust my hips to try to get it. I didn’t think I was going to get it, but it’s cool I did. It helped the team out.”

It’s bonus points like those that come along with Soler’s pin and those Cuzzetto earned by earning a major decision in the final seconds of his victory over Skyline’s Tristan Steciw with a two-point takedown that have the Vikings in position to win yet another state title.

“We have to bonus points to win,” Barnes said. “The way we look at is, let’s produce another state champion with wins and bonus points. Our goal is to get 25 or 26 bonus points and if we do that’s like having another guy get to the state finals.”
