PREP WRESTLING: Seniors lead Mount Baker over Nooksack Valley

The Mount Baker wrestling team dropped its first two matches of the evening, but a strong showing from its seniors got the team roll-ing to an eventual 61-12 win over visiting Nooksack Valley on Thursday.

Bonzai Billings (119) and Nathan Christofferson (125) got the Pioneers an early 6-0 lead, but the Mountianeers came back with pins from Tommy Williamson (130), Dawson Patrick (135) and Eli Jacoby (140), and they never trailed again.

Baker also had pins by freshmen Zak Lepper (103) and A.J. Howard (112).

Nooksack Valley’s Dillon Jimmie had the Pioneers’ only other win, by pin at 145 pounds.
