THE BELLINGHAM HERALDDecember 5, 2013 

Blaine's boys' wrestling team topped both Lynden and Meridian in matches Thursday, Dec. 5, at Meridian High School. In the third match, Lynden defeated Meridian 60-6.

Blaine defeated Lynden 62-12 with quick pins by Derreck Camba, Gage Lott, Christian Sharp and Israel Hernandez. In the 152-pound class Lynden's Christian Mouat pinned Collin Nielson in just more than a minute.

The Borderites also got some quick pins in their 66-9 win over Meridian. Colton Economy and Trevin Brady each got pins in less than a minute for Blaine.

"Colton Economy stood out today," Blaine coach Craig Foster said in a phone interview. "As a freshman in his first high school matches he pinned a kid (against Meridian), and won 15-1 over another (against Lynden)."

Lynden coach Randy Anderson was impressed with Mouat's two pins.

"Christian Mouat was 2-0 today and showed good poise and leadership," Anderson said in a phone interview. "He came out and wrestled like a veteran."
