The Deer Park wrestling program discovered eight can be really great.
The Stags, led by nine individual medalists, brought home their eighth state championship in the past 11 seasons on Saturday. Deer Park amassed 159 points to lead the Class 1A field at Mat Classic XXX in the Tacoma Dome. The point total easily outdistanced Northeast A League rivals Colville and Freeman, which held down the second and third place spots.
Fellow NE-A League schools Lakeside (ninth), Medical Lake (13th), Riverside (15th) and Chewelah (17th) also cracked the Top 20 last weekend.
