The Wahkiakum Mules wrestling team fared well at a mix-and-match meet in Onalaska last Wednesday.
Lilian Hale won both of her matches and come home with a sportsmanship award in the form of a pin.
“She always shows amazing sportsmanship,” Coach Kyliegh Harlin said.
Zaya Ray went two for three in competition and teammate Lilly Snead was three for three.
Mason Curl won both his matches, and Harley Popp won one of two. Brody Ashe lost both his matches but, according to Harlin, put up an intense battle and lost in the third round by two points, 21-19.
“They all did absolutely fantastic,” Harlin said. “I am so proud of each one of these kids and am so grateful to be their coach.”
Sub-regionals begin this Saturday with the boys competing in Kalama and the girls headed to Hockinson. Regionals take place Feb. 10, and qualifiers for the state tournament will head to Tacoma Dome on Feb. 16-17.
