Enumclaw High girls wrestling | Coach Jerry Scheidt

This week the Enumclaw girls wrestling team had three outings in which the girls posted some good results.

On Wednesday Jan. 9 the Hornet girls wrestled the White River girls at White River in dual competition.
Both teams had some girls out due to injury, illness or for other reasons, but the here were the results of the match up that evening.
In the first match Raquel Cormier of EHS pinned Emma Walker of WR 40 seconds in the first round.
Then in the second match KC Moulden of EHS won by fall over Hannah Lewandowski of WR in 3:24 seconds in the second round.
In the third match Morgan Shirey WR pinned Jaelen Hobert EHS just 25 seconds into the second round. In the fourth match Kristen Green bumped up a weight class and wrestled Kendra Blue of White River at 130lbs. Kendra took Kristen down in the first round and tired hard to turn her for but only ended up with a 2-0 score at the end of the round. Then in the next 2 rounds, she scored two reversals and won the match 6-0 to earn a victory for the White River Hornets. In match 5, Danielle Cormier pinned Jamie Meagher of WR at the 5 minute mark of the 3rd round to run her season record to 12-3. In the sixth match of the evening, Raquel Cormier wrestled a second match of the evening and lost to Kylie Norton of WR by fall in just 8 seconds into the second round. Finally in the last match of the evening, Hannah Lewandowski of WR pinned Chantal Capps of Enumclaw in fifty five seconds. Capps took Lewandowski down, but was quickly reversed and pinned shortly after. For the girls it was a good evening of wrestling. Both teams competed hard and are starting to look ready for their post-season tournaments coming up in two weeks.
The second outing of the week pitted the Enumclaw Girls vs Lakes at Enumclaw Thursday evening January 10th. There was only two matches on the evening at the dual because Enumclaw was hit with the flu and injury bug and only had two girls that could wrestle lakes that evening. In the first match at 124 pounds, Kristen Green wrestled Jessyka Windley of Lakes and dominated the match most of the way. At the end of the first round, Green was ahead 6-1 with 2 takedowns and 1 - 2 point nearfall. Then in the second round, she scored a reversal and a takedown after Windley got an escape to make the score 10-2 Enumclaw. Finally, after another reversal in the 3rd round, Green pinned Windley with just under a minute left in the match to earn a victory for the Hornets. Then in the second match, Raquel Cormier wrestled Juliana Trujillo at 137lbs to an 8-3 loss. Trujillo was the SPSL Tournament Champion in December and a State Participant in 2012, but Cormier gave her a good battle but came up short. In the first round, Trujillo dominated Cormier with a takedown and a 2 point nearfall leading 4-0 at the end of one period. Then in in the second period started off the same way with another reversal and nearfall running the score to 8-0 before Cormier reversed her at the end of the round and put her on her back out of bounds, but got no points for the effort. Finally in the 3rd round, Cormier got a penalty point for an illegal hold and finished the match losing 8-3 but gaining confidence she will fair well against Trujillo in the post-season tournament in a few weeks.

 

Finally, the Enumclaw Hornets ended their week attending the Burlington Edison Tournament on Saturday January 12th unexpectedly because the Fife Tournament got cancelled at the last minute. It worked out for the hornets though as they were able to travel 2 hours north and wrestle some very talented teams from the north to place 8th in the tournament of 27 teams. At 124lbs the Hornets had 2 girls Kristen Green and Jaelen Hobert. Kristen lost her first two matches and was eliminated from the tournament after her two losses earlier in the day. Jaelen Hobert was put in a Round Robin Bracket and won all 3 of her matches to win the Bracket at 124lbs. Hobert wrestled with a sore thumb and had it wrapped since injuring it last weekend at the Kelso Tournament. Then at 137lbs, Raquel Cormier hurt her shoulder in her first match against Chloe Gardner of Nooksack Valley, who was 3rd in state last year, and did not wrestle the rest of the day as a precaution. "We need her for the sub-district tournament. and so I pulled her out to make sure she didn't injure it more by wrestling on it,". At 145lbs, Danielle Cormier won 4 matches on the day and earned a tournament Championship as well. She won her first match by pin in one minute and 22 seconds. Then in her second match she won by a technical fall over Kylie Norton of White River 19-3. Then in the semi-finals, she pinned Shelby Burress of Burlington Edison in 2 minutes and 26 seconds to face Kyla Campbell of Yelm in the finals. In the finals, Campbell took down Cormier before she scored a 2 pt reversal and a 3 point nearfall and almost a fall to end the round 5-2. Then in the second round Cormier got another point for an illegal hold to make the score 6-2 to start the 3rd round. Finally, the match went back and forth with no points awarded until the end when Campbell got a point for Cormier stalling to make the final score 6-3. It was a hard fought and good battle. At 190lbs, Jade Paterson made her first appearance of the season by winning in 24 seconds of the first round with pin over Logan Riggles of Sedro Woolley. Then in the second match, Jade Paterson fought hard with Delisha Hodges of Burlington and was leading 12-3 before pinning her in the 3rd round to earn a trip to the semi-finals. Then in her 3rd match, she met up with Aysha Schwinden of Mount Baker and fought hard but was pinned with just 1 second left in the second round to drop down and wrestle in the consolation bracket. In her final match she wrestled Tonie Edwards of Yelm and won by a pin in 3 minutes and 5 seconds to earn 3rd place in the Tournament. To end the day, KC Moulden wrapped up the 235lb title by pinning all of her opponents in the first round. In the process, she improved her own personal best 17 second pin, by earning a 16 second pin in her first match to move her to 3rd on the list of fastest pins by EHS girl wrestlers.

 

The Hornets will only have one outing this week Friday Night at Emerald Ridge for the SPSL Duals. The SPSL dual season will end Thursday Night, but Decatur does not have any girl wrestlers, so the Hornets are not left with 2 events left. This Friday's at Emerald Ridge and next weekend at Jackson High School.
