Area girls were well represented during the weekend’s state wrestling championships at the Tacoma Dome.
The tourney brings together female grapplers from all schools, regardless of size, for the annual two-day tourney.
In the end, Sumner High senior Nicole Clark claimed a solo championship, besting the rest of the field in the 140-pound weight class.
As a team, White River made the biggest splash, qualifying four wrestlers for state and taking eighth place. Once in the Dome, junior Payton Stroud battled her way to the 120-pound finals, placing second. Teammate Claire DiCugno, a freshman, finished fourth at 125. Also representing White River at state were seniors Tatiana Molinero and Esperanza Aparicio-Gamez.
Enumclaw High sophomore Kenzie Cormier placed fourth at 110 pounds. Also earning a state trip from EHS was senior Alexandra Puzon.
