Kristen Green and KC Moulden earned top honors at the inaugural Lady Hornets Classic wrestling tournament Dec. 10.

Kristen Green and KC Moulden earned top honors at the inaugural Lady Hornets Classic wrestling tournament Dec. 10.

The round-robin, skill-based tournament was a joint effort between White River and Enumclaw high girls wrestling programs. It matched athletes on skill level, weight and experience at three bracket levels – state level; experienced, but not state level; and new to the sport. The tournament drew 14 teams from across the state and 125 wrestlers. Team scores were not kept.

Green was among those with limited experience. She placed first in the 118-pound bracket.

Moulden was placed in the experienced bracket where she won her 275-pound division.

Chantel Capps won three of four matches in the lower bracket at 195 pounds for second place. She currently has four wins on the season.

The Hornets’ experienced 155-pound Logann Erskine finished third. She went 2-1 for the day, but finished third due to criteria. She pinned champion Dylan Fagan from White River, but Fagan had two pins for the day. Hoquiam wrestler Samantha King also had two pins.

Jade Paterson also placed third in the top bracket. The 195-pounder dropped a decision to White River’s Sam Mitchell, then lost a decision before earning a pin.

At 106 pounds, in the middle bracket, Jasmine Anderson lost her opening two matches before pinning Rebecca Kautz of Spanaway for third.

Back in the top bracket, EHS’s Danielle Cormier finished third at 145 pounds. She dropped the first two matches before earning a 13-3 decision.

Kasandra Renfrow finished fourth in the 155-pound top bracket.

The Lady Hornets were at the Rogers Holiday Tournament Saturday, but results came too late to be printed here.
