The Ferndale wrestling team had clutch wins in the end to defeat Sedro-Woolley 40-27 in a Northwest Conference meet Wednesday, Jan. 16.
The win improved the Golden Eagles to 6-1, 3-1 NWC.
"We had a really good team effort," Ferndale coach Caleb Schlack said in a phone interview.
Schlack said he thinks it may be the first time since 2003 or 2004 that Ferndale defeated Sedro-Woolley.
"The kids really battled in close matches," Schlack said. "I was really happy to see that out of our guys."
Ferndale had pins by Braiden Klint at 126 pounds, Derek Vajda (132), Kam Williams (220) and Chris Hernandez (285). The Golden Eagles also had wins by Isaiah Heredia at 113 pounds, Erik Engels (160), Charnjit Mattu (170), Klinton Maassen (182) and Sam Alexander (195).
