Lynden boys' wrestling pulls out tough win over Anacortes


The Lynden boys' wrestling team defeated Anacortes 45-31 on Wednesday, Jan. 15, at Lynden High School.

The Lions were led by their lower-weight wrestlers, getting wins from Jordan Scotter, Primitivo Cruz, Johnny Lara, Christian Mouat, Kollin George and Andy Herrera.

"We took the lead early and didn't relinquish it," Lynden coach Randy Anderson said in a phone interview. "Our lower-weight guys did the job."
