Oak Harbor competes in four events over weekend / Wrestling

It was a busy weekend — one of mixed results — for the Oak Harbor High School wrestling team.

Friday, Oak Harbor took part in two events in Everett. First, the Wildcats lost 57-22 to the Seagulls in a Western Conference contest. That match was followed by a battle between a regional all-star team and the Japanese Junior National squad. Three Wildcats (Caleb Fitzgerald, Blake McBride and Michael Fisken), none of who wrestled in the league match, were part of the all-star lineup.

Saturday, Oak Harbor’s first team placed fourth out of 15 schools at the Panther Classic in Snohomish, while its second squad took seventh out of eight schools at the Shoreline Invitational.

This week, the Wildcats (0-3, 3-7) entertain Arlington (2-0, 4-1) in Wesco action at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 11.

Everett 57, Oak Harbor 22

The Seagulls (3-0, 5-1) remained in first place in the Wesco North with the win.

Cultural exchange match

The regional team was no match for Japan’s best in the freestyle exhibition. The visitors rarely gave up a point in sweeping the competition.

Panther Classic

Eight of the 10 Oak Harbor competitors placed, led by champions McBride (145 pounds) and Fisken (220). Fisken recorded four consecutive pins to secure his title.

The Wildcats placed fourth in the team standings with 142 points even though they did not field a wrestler in four classes. Oak Harbor’s eight placers tied three other schools for the most in the meet.

Decatur won the team title with 168.5 points; Oak Harbor tallied 142.
