Mount Baker tops both Sehome and Lynden

THE BELLINGHAM HERALDDecember 18, 2013 

The Mount Baker boys' wrestling team defeated both Lynden and Sehome on Wednesday, Dec. 18, topping the Lions 42-30 and the Mariners 42-30. Sehome defeated Lynden in their matchup 47-36.

Standouts from the meet included Mount Baker's Travis Linsey, who had little trouble with both his opponents recording consecutive pins, Max Martinson and Alex Ray. Both Martinson and Ray, like Lindsey, won both of their respective matches by way of pin.

"They're just tough, gritty kids," said Sehome coach Scott Schroyer in a phone interview. "Hats off to Mount Baker. Their kids are just flat-out tough."

Sehome's Steven Yazzie, who wrestled out of the 132-pound weight class, won both of his matches in the dual meet. He won both matches by points.

"I thought our kids tried hard," Schroyer said.

Lynden's Christian Mouat, who wrestled out of the 145-pound weight class, won both of his matches for the Lions by way of pin.

For Sehome, Schroyer wants to see a greater level of consistency from his kids, a level of consistency he thought Mount Baker brings with it to every meet.

"They're grinders," he said of Mount Baker. "We've got to learn how to compete better, and until we do that we're kind of up and down."
