The Lynden girls' wrestling team competed in a double-dual against Lakewood, Stanwood and Burlington-Edison on Wednesday, Dec. 19, at Burlington-Edison High School.
"We have a lot of new girls this year and some of them are still learning how to get around the mat," Lynden coach Santos Gallegos said in a phone interview. "They have really improved over the last few weeks. We need to get more aggressive though."
No team scores were kept at the meet.
Lynden was led by Thalia Veliz, who pinned Quincy Gunderson from Burlington-Edison in the 170-pound weight class, and Lisa Hernandez, who pinned Larissa Carrel of Burlington-Edison in 36 seconds in the 235-pound weight class.
"The girls really stepped it up in the second match against Lakewood," Gallegos said. "We haven't wrestled for a while, so they needed to get back and get refreshed. I'm really proud of the results from today."
Natalie Martinez pinned Alexis Cary from Lakewood in the third round for the Lions in the 112 weight class, and Maria Ortiz pinned Hunter Clark in the 124 weight class.
Lynden will next participate in the Lady Lion Tournament of Champions in Auburn on Saturday, Dec. 22.
