Blaine wrestling continues to roll with two wins

THE BELLINGHAM HERALDJanuary 22, 2014 

Blaine boys' wrestling came away from a four-team match with two wins Wednesday, Jan. 22, at Sehome High School. Sehome and Burlington-Edison each won one match and Squalicum lost both of its matches.

The Borderites' Israel Hernandez (220 pounds), Tristan Hunter (170) and Billy Dodd (126) each scored pins in both of their matches. Gage Lott earned a pin and a technical fall for Blaine.

"They were just dominant in their matches," Blaine coach Craig Foster said in a phone interview. "We wrestled relaxed and with a lot of confidence."

Zach Zimmerman (182) and Briley Funk (285) each earned a pin and a forfeit win for Sehome.

"Elliot Berger did a nice job tonight (in his match against Squalicum's Max Angel)," Sehome coach Scott Schoyer said in a phone interview. "He wrestled well in his first match (against Lott) as well."

Zack Johnson led Squalicum, scoring two pins in the 126-pound division.

"He pinned two kids wrestling up two weight classes, which is impressive for a freshman," Squalicum coach Russell Robinson said in a phone interview. "Edgar Meri has never wrestled a varsity match and he battled with Hugo Diaz, who is a good wrestler."

Sehome and Squalicum compete in the Lynden Tournament at 9 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 25. Blaine's next match is at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 29, at Anacortes.
