Wildcats hold 1st home match / Girls wrestling

It wasn’t a win but it was a first.

The Oak Harbor High School girls wrestling team, in its second year of existence, hosted its first ever dual match Wednesday, Jan. 8.

The Wildcats (0-6) dropped both ends of the double dual, falling to Lynden 36-27 and to unbeaten Burlington-Edison 66-0.

Oak Harbor’s only other home action this season will be in the Women in the Arena Tournament at 9 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 18.

Oak Harbor will compete in the A-Town Tournament at 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 11, in Arlington.

Forfeits proved to be the difference in Oak Harbor’s loss to Lynden (2-3). In the seven classes the Wildcats did fill, they won five.

Oak Harbor was forced to forfeit four weights, one by injury default; there were three double forfeits.

Adelina Lopez, who won with a third-round pin, “had a great performance,” according to assistant coach Erin Locke.

“Christina Frank also had an outstanding quick pin fall,” she added.
