Lakes Wrestling: Kiaya Van Scoyoc Wins Schools First-Ever State Championship

The 155-pound sophomore went undefeated in the 3A Mat Classic state tournament, pinning every opponent, this past weekend at the Tacoma Dome.

It was a historic moment for the Lakes girls wrestling program and the rest of the West Central District 3A this past weekend when sophomore Kiaya Van Scoyoc captured a state championship during the Mat Classic 3A state tournament at the Tacoma Dome.

The sophomore went undefeated in the 155-pound weight class and pinned Haylee Rabenstein of Sedro Wooley in the title match. Lakes Athletic Director Joe Keller told Patch it's the first women's state title in Lakes' history and the West Central District 3A classification.

Patch released a video of Van Scoyoc on her way to landing third place in the 160 pound weight class as a freshman.

yes she is good at throwing her head and arm but at state she never took a shot she just wated and did the head and arm to me a state champion should do every thing not just one move but congrats on the win lakes

I truly believe you and I hope she does go for other things because those girls who believe that they can beat her will learn her, She is now very predictable and should become an all around wrestler lol in college that won't fly. But I love her and care, so as a teammate we will go ham togather .
