Storm holds off Mariners

Squalicum’s boys’ wrestling team earned five wins by pin en route to a 42-27 win over Sehome on Wednesday, Jan. 7, at Sehome.

The Storm’s Zack Johnson (120 pounds), Spencer Wallace (126), Zachary Wallace (145), Victor Guerra-Rica (152) and Jacob Burgoon (170) were winners by pinfall.

Edgar Neri also earned a 13-11 win for Squalicum in dramatic fashion in the 132-pound weight class.

“Edgar came back and won his match. He did a nice job against (Chandler Heintz),” Sehome coach Scott Schroyer said in a phone interview. “He was down 8-5 and came back. He just stuck with it and got our kid at the end. He kept wrestling.”

Logan Franey at 113 pounds earned a 3-1 win over Jase Cooper for the Mariners in what Schroyer called the closest match of the evening. Sehome got wins by pin from Kyle Clemenson (138), Jace Rinker (182) and Briley Funk (285).

Sehome competes in the Burlington Duals at 9 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 10, at Burlington-Edison, while Squalicum takes on Bellingham at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 14, at home.
