Hunter Haney, who wrestled his way to a state championship while at Enumclaw High School, continues to shine as a member of the Washington State University team.

Haney became WSU’s fourth All-American wrestler by taking third-place honors during the National Collegiate Wrestling Association national tournament in Allen, Texas.

Haney, a sophomore on the Pullman campus, went 6-1 at nationals, pinning four opponents along the way. He and eight Cougar teammates advanced to the medal round, boosting WSU to an 11th-place finish.

To qualify for the national tourney, Haney went 4-0 with four first-round pins at the NCWA Northwest Conference tournament hosted by Grays Harbor College.

Because wrestling is a club sport at WSU, as opposed to an NCAA-level program, competition comes from a variety of schools. The 11-team NCWA Northwest Conference is comprised of large institutions like WSU, the University of Washington and the University of Oregon, along with 10 smaller four-year colleges and the two-year Grays Harbor College.

Aside from his success on the mat this season, Haney also achieved academic All-American status.
