Arlington wrestlers impressive
over multiple meets
The Arlington wrestling team added to its strong season by defeating Monroe in a dual meet on Friday Jan. 11. The Eagles went on the road to take down a perennial contender 52-22.
They followed that up with an excellent showing in the Marysville Premier wrestling tournament over the weekend, placing third out of 18 teams.
We had 10 guys place, said Coach Doug Byers. The guys did a great job.
Everybody on Arlington scored points for the Eagles during the event. Jesse Bosley, Chris Myers, and Mark Davis all found themselves wrestling in the finals of the event. All three placed second in their respective weight divisions.
Arlington also got impressive outings from Steven White, Dom Mangini, Nathan Shortt, and Richard Perkins. All four Eagles came in third in their weight classes. Jordan Anderson and Chris Berg came in fifth at 189 and 125 respectively.
stumble in second
half at Oak Harbor
After an impressive first half that saw the Eagles girls basketball team outscore Oak Harbor 28-26, everything went sour for Arlington. The Jan. 16 match-up pitted the 4-8 Eagles against a 10-2 dynamo in Oak Harbor and for one half it looked as if an upset was brewing. The second half told a different tale as the Eagles managed a mere five points after the break. Oak Harbor continued their strong play to win handily 61-33.
For the Eagles Alisha Murrin led the team with eight points, followed by Ginny Wilsons six. Whatever went right for the team in the first 16 minutes fell apart to give the home team an easy victory. Arlington falls to 1-8 in league.
Four Tomahawks scored in double figures as M-P won a road game at Everett 60-40.
Led by senior Jessica Masters 16 points, M-P improved to 5-4. Masters and senior guard Nicole Peterson each had a pair of three-pointers in the game, as Peterson accumulated 12 points. The Tomahawks leading scorer Britt Harris had 11 points and senior Shaelei Lucas had 10.
With 4-6 Cascade at their heels, M-P is currently in fourth place in the league, trailing Lake Stevens, Snohomish and Oak Harbor.
The Tomahawks have a tough stretch ahead of them, with another match looming against each of those teams. Theyll visit the 9-0 Lake Stevens squad Jan. 23 before facing Snohomish Jan. 26, Cascade Feb. 1 and Oak Harbor Feb. 6. Only the Snohomish game will in the Jim Linden Fieldhouse.
