Foster’s Cale Woyvodich to wrestle at state, makes Seamount first team

Cale Woyvodich of Tukwila, who wrestles at 120 pounds for Foster High School, will compete in his third state wrestling tournament this weekend.

Cale Woyvodich of Tukwila, who wrestles at 120 pounds for Foster High School, will compete in his third state wrestling tournament this weekend.

As a freshman and sophomore, Woyvodich placed fourth at the state tournament; an injury at the regional tournament prevented him from competing at last year’s tournament.

Woyvodich was named this week to the 2014-15 Seamount All-League Wrestling first team.

Woyvodich won his berth at the Mat Classic in Tacoma with a second-place finish in the regional tournament on Feb. 14. In a match that went into overtime, he lost to Zach Edson of Highline High School.

“Cale’s last match at regionals was a tough one, but he fought to the end,” said his coach, Patrick Kalalau. “But in the end, the refereee has the final say, so he took second place.”

Edson also beat Woyvodich, a senior at Seattle Christian School, at the subregional tournament Feb. 7.

Woyvodich is the only Foster wrestler to make it to the state tournament.

Two Foster wrestlers placed sixth at regionals, Zane Galoia at 220 pounds and Kumar Teve at 285 pounds, a finish not high enough to make state.

Mark Schenck, the Seamount League champ at 132 pounds, wrestled at regionals losing his two matches.
