Bonney Lake's Colton Tracy wins 132 pound 3A state wrestling title.

Colton Tracy has made winning state wrestling titles at Bonney Lake High a family affair.

Tracy won the 132 pound title over Tyler Wicken from Kelson 9-7 Saturday at the Tacoma Dome.

Tracy’s brother, Addison, won the first state title for the school in 2009 at 145 pounds.

“My brother won it when I was in the seventh grade,” Tracy said. “When he won it I knew I wanted it.”

Tracy said, “It was tough getting to the final. The past few weeks have been challenging. But I had a good feeling the past three days.”

Moments after Tracy won he hugged his coach, Anthony Clarke, then sprinted to the top of the stands to greet his mother, family and friends.

Clarke said the coaching staff saw early this year his timing and strength were very good.

“And his technique is at another level,” Clarke said. “It’s at a D-1 level.”

Clarke said Tracy told him he worked out at least twice a day all season and the worked paid off in a title.

Tracy had beaten Wicken earlier in the season, but Clarke said they were not taking him lightly.

“We know how hard Wicken works,” Clarke said.

After the first round there was no score and Tracy said, “I figured I could win it if I stuck to my game plan. The only time I’ve gotten into trouble this year is when I didn’t stick to my game plan.

As the match continued Tracy conditioning and technique wore down Wicken.

“I’ve been dreaming for this moment,” Tracy said.
