Enumclaw girls wrestling team looking for championship | Preview

The girls wrestling team at Enumclaw High is on a championship quest.

KC Moulden won her second state wrestling title at the Mat Classic Feb. 22 at the Tacoma Dome.

The girls wrestling team at Enumclaw High is on a championship quest.

The eight girls on the team include two-time state champion KC Moulden at 235 pounds. Moulden is the team captain and has a 75-7 career record.

Last season the EHS girls took second place in the South Puget Sound League 3A, seventh at regionals and ninth in the state tournament.

“Our goal this year is to really focus on improving ourselves as both a wrestler and a person,” coach Jerry Scheidt said. “Even though we voted and have elected one captain, all the girls will be taking on some leadership responsibilities this year.

“The goal is to be league champion.”

Enumclaw wrestlers to watch include Raquel Cormier, 15-15 last year. She injured her elbow at regionals but is back in form.

Ally Smith will wrestle at 170, same as last season, and Jaelen Hobert is back on the mat. She was an alternate to state two years ago.

Scheidt said Laurel Zemke, “spent most of last year learning wrestling, but has worked in the offseason doing judo and was a state judo champion…and that has added to her mat time and experience.”

Scheidt said freshman Alexandra Puzon, at 100 pounds, has put many hours on the mat during the offseason wrestling in large tournaments and is expected to make an impact.

The coach said the team has an agreement with the Muckleshoot Tribal School. “We practice, compete and travel together except for when we get to the postseason, (then) we score and become two separate teams,” Scheidt said.

The tribal school has seven wrestlers and the coach is Heather Scheidt. The wrestlers are Jasmine Arivizu,  Monique Brace, Lexi James-Mason, Leondra Keeline, Virginia Marquez, Natasha Underwood Elkins and Gahlaho Wier.
