Lady Hornets earn ninth place

Mikaela Kilcup puts the squeeze on during Saturday’s tournament at Emerald Ridge.

Sam Lovelace and McKaela Kilcup placed third and the White River High girls wrestling team finished ninth out of 24 teams Saturday at Emerald Ridge in Puyallup.

Lovelace also won her varsity match Thursday during boys wrestling competition against Peninsula with an 11-9 overtime decision. For more information see the White River High boys wrestling story on this page.

Coach Joe Klein hopes the Lady Hornets will be able to see some additional league competition Thursday night when the Hornets meet Enumclaw; however, the two girls’ teams do not match up well.
