WR girls second at Lynden tourney

Three wrestlers also got individual championships for their weight class.

Competing in a field of 36 teams, the White River High girls placed second at the Pride of Lady Lions wrestling tournament.

The Saturday competition was hosted by Lynden High School.

Highlighting the Lady Hornet effort were a trio of championship performances. Payton Stroud captured the individual title at 125 pounds, Claire DiCugno topped the field at 130 and Jalia Williams took top honors at 135. Stroud is a senior, DiCugno a sophomore and Williams a freshman.

Two other White River girls battled their way to the finals, placing second. They were Alex Hernandez at 145 pounds and Ailaina Cox at 235. Additionally, a pair of Lady Hornets placed third, Rachel Poussier at 130 pounds and Maria Hawthorne at 140.

The squad has little in the way of competition during winter break. The only thing on the schedule is a Dec. 27 meet at Orting. The team will return to post-break action with an overnight, Jan. 4-5 trip to a tournament in Kelso.
