Wolverine’s wrestling team competed in the King of the Mountain tournament this past Saturday in Darrington, and came away with multiple wins. Junior James Guard took second place in the 113 pound weight class, and fellow Junior Jesse Payne placed third, weighing in at 120.

Seniors Ben Ware and Thomas Synoground placed third and fourth in their respective weight classes. Sophomore wrestler Wade Swirtz took sixth at 145 pounds.

Junior Hunter Rustad was out this week with a knee injury, but coach Taine Pyle is hopeful he will back on the mat this coming Wednesday Jan. 20 when the team wrestles in their final home match of the season against Concrete, Darrington and LaConner.

The Lady Wolverine’s Varsity basketball team won one and lost one this past week. On Tuesday, Jan 12, the girl’s played Cedar Park Christian at home and came away with a 20 point win.

The final score was 45-25. Once again LaConner proved tough to beat and the Wolverines couldn’t quite pull out a win in Friday’s away game, losing 46-25 on Jan. 15
