Medeiros to wrestle for state title

TACOMA — South Kitsap coach Chad Nass said during last weekend’s regionals at Snohomish High School that he expected a rematch between Damien Medeiros and Lake Stevens’ Brandon Johnson for the 285-pound Class 4A state championship. And that is exactly how it played out Saturday at Mat Classic XXV.

Medeiros, a South senior who placed eighth at state a year ago at 285, won a 3-2 overtime decision in the semifinals against Kentlake’s Tyler Deskins. Meanwhile, Johnson won 5-2 against Tahoma’s Ed Torres.

This will be the third time Medeiros and Johnson have faced each other this season. Johnson won 5-3 last week at regionals and 6-4 in overtime at Matman Classic on Jan. 12.

The championship match is scheduled for 9:10 tonight.
