Vatoria Keyes made history at Mat Classic XXXI.
Keyes became the first Edmonds-Woodway female wrestler to win a medal at the state tournament.
The junior took fourth place in the 235-pound division Saturday, Feb. 16, in the Tacoma Dome.
Keyes lost by fall to Toppenish senior Jaqueline Luna at the 4-minute, 38-second mark in the third/fourth place match.
“It feels amazing,” Keyes said of medaling. “I’m sad I lost the match, but I’m really happy I placed this year.”
Keyes went 1-2 at last year’s state meet and was 0-2 in her first appearance at state two years ago.
