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.

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."
