Wrestling: Wolves girls battle Bulldogs for win

With the visiting North Mason Bulldogs in town on Dec. 19, Sequim’s girls wrestling squad showed its strength with a 30-12 win over North Mason’s girls.

Sequim’s Emily Dodson pinned North Mason’s Calista Navarro with 24 seconds left in the second period at 120 pounds.

At 155 pounds, Aleah Chen pinned North Mason’s Destiny Ferber in 1:25.

Skye Henning won by forfeit at 135 pounds but won her exhibition match with Diamond Jenkins at 145 pounds anyway, topping the Bulldog with 58 seconds remaining in the second period.

Both Amara Sayer (130 pounds) and Petra Bernsten (145) won their matches by forfeit but lost exhibition matches; Sayer fell in 1:27 of the first period to Tyler Odette while Bernsten fell to Ethan Oien in 1:15 in the opening period.

North Mason’s Kira Schwerzier pinned Sequim 125-pounder Alexi Rampp-Taft with nine seconds remaining in the first period.

In the boys’ varsity match the same night, an over-matched Sequim squad fell 78-6 to North Mason.

Sequim 145-pounder Zachery Koch earned a pin against Pascual Victoriano Joaquin with 32 seconds left in the second period.

After Sequim (0-2) forfeited the 160-pound weight division, Sequim’s Murray Bingham lost a 3-2, overtime exhibition match to Bulldog Cole Varick.

Bingham nearly missed the match entirely after singing with the SHS choir, also held on the Sequim High campus that night, and several other wrestlers were unable to compete because they were likewise singing at the school choir event.

Sequim’s Kobe Applegate (126 pounds), Jakob Pyeatt (138), Logan Laxson (182) and Noah Eveland (285) also competed for the Wolves, each losing by pin.

SHS’s Ben Castle (170) forfeited because of an injury.

In all, Sequim’s boys forfeited nine weight classes.

Looking ahead

The Wolves are back in action Jan. 10 at Olympic.

Sequim boys are at the Island Invitational on Bainbridge Island on Jan. 12 while the girls compete at the Lads and Lasses invite at Fife High School the same day.

The Wolves host Port Angeles Jan. 17.
