Wrestling FROM PAGE C1 University, taught a lot of high- percentage moves -- holds and moves that tend to be particularly effective. He said their expertise will help give Washington high school wrestlers a better reputa- tion across the country. "This means we're getting ex- tra help," DeMatteo said. "Wash- ington needs to get help with its reputation." Henson and Seay coach at the highest level of collegiate and professional wrestling -- Henson is now at the University of Okla- homa and Seay at Oklahoma State -- but they stressed that some aspects of the sport are the same at all levels. "The key to wrestling is their stance, their positioning. A lot of the things are basic techniques that you use at every level," Hen- son said in a phone interview while in New York. "I give them some insight into how to get into a shot or to finish a shot." Another focus of the commuter camp was training wrestlers to be more disciplined as early as pos- sible. "We're all trying to help oung athletes become better technicians at a younger age," Seay said as wrestlers practiced on the mats July 3. "I teach all levels the same things. I try to get the most sound, fundamental base. To me, wrestling is like a physical chess match." Henson said he keeps coming back to Skyline because he has close ties with Spartan coach Gus Kiss. He also likes the youths here. Every year, he sees 20-25 returning participants from East- lake High, Eastside Catholic, Sky- line and other schools in the area. "I love the Sammamish area, and that's why I'm back there every year," Henson said. "It's definitely a place where I feel comfortable."
