Ferndale dominates in first wrestling meet (w/video)




Ferndale defeated both Anacortes and Squalicum on Wednesday, Dec. 4, at Ferndale High School.

The Golden Eagles won their first matches 60-21 over Anacortes. The momentum continued through the second match when Ferndale topped Squalicum 75-0.

"I am happy to see my guys go out there and be aggressive," Ferndale coach Caleb Schlack said in a phone interview. "We were more aggressive than our opponents and that helped us out."

The Golden Eagles won all but four of their matches through the two matches. Ferndale benefited from nine opponents' forfeits.

"We have to continue to work hard," Schlack said. "We can't rest on our laurels. The scores were a bit skewed because of forfeits, but we need to continue to work to improve. We can't think we're good enough."

The other match scores between Anacortes and Squalicum were not reported.

Ferndale next plays in the Big Dog Tournament hosted by Cascade on Saturday, Dec. 6.
