Wildcats maul MG | Wrestling

Putting an exclamation point on a fine regular season, the Oak Harbor High School wrestling team mauled visiting Marysville Getchell 56-15 in the final Wesco match Thursday, Jan. 26.

The Wildcats wrapped up the regular season with a 7-1 record, second in the Western Conference 3A division behind Everett, and 15-2 overall.

Up next is the sub-regional tournament, hosted by Oak Harbor, Friday and Saturday, Feb. 3 and 4. Ferndale, Mount Vernon and Sedro-Woolley will join the nine Wesco schools in the meet; five individuals in each weight class will earn berths in the regional tournament.

The match with Marysville Getchell (3-3, 9-7), "on paper," coach Mike Crebbin said, "should have been closer."

He added, "The kids are really coming together. We had good matches up and down the weight classes. I am really proud of my kids."
