A Sequim squad plagued by injuries looked for individual victories last week at the Battle of the Axe tournament in Port Angeles on Jan. 18.

The Wolves were swept by their Olympic Peninsula counterparts, falling 62-12 to Port Angeles, 64-24 to Port Townsend and 70-12 to Forks’ Spartans, the tourney champions.

Sequim’s Ben Newell went 2-1 for the Wolves, including a pin of Port Angeles’ Jackson Larson, while Jamie Schroepfer had a pin against PA’s Nate Harrelson. Kiara Pierson, ranked No. 6 in the state by Washington Wrestling Report at 135 pounds, wrestled tough matches against Forks and Port Angeles foes and earned a win against Port Townsend.

Sequim hosts the All-Comers tournament on Saturday, Jan. 27, and the sub-regional tournament on Saturday, Feb. 3.
