Tiger Girls Go Toe to Toe With Tornadoes
YELM — Centralia’s girls wrestling squad more than held its own against defending state champion Yelm here Thursday night, coming up just short at 32-30 in a dual meet.
“To compete with a team of this caliber is a direct result of the hard work our girls are putting in,” Centralia coach Mark Holmberg said. “I’m extremely proud of the effort they showed. The fact that the majority of these girls will be here for two more years makes me very excited about our future.”
Taryn Salazar got a pin at 100 pounds for the Tigers, and Olivea Delaney picked up a pin at 105. Faith Halseth, a junior who joined the team midseason, got a second-round pin at 125, and Mariah Taylor had what Holmberg called her best match of the season in a second-round pin at 130.
Kupria LaPierre added a pin at 135 for the Tigers, and Jakayla Shipe got an exhibition pin over Laurel Bradford at 190.
