Lynden's 100-pound Nelly Medina placed third, and 190-pounder Alexus Magana and heavyweight Felicity Strain finished fourth in their respective weight classes.
"Nelly Medina started the day with a fever and (acted) like she was going to throw up," Lynden assistant girls' coach Sally Gallegos said in a phone interview. "She ended up wrestling very hard today and did really well."
