SEDRO-WOOLLEY — The wrestling mats were once again rolled out onto the football field for a high school girls' match Thursday evening.
Sedro-Woolley hosted Mount Baker, Burlington-Edison, Ferndale, Squalicum, Nooksack Valley and Blaine in the scramble-style event.
"Last night was changed last minute," said Sedro-Woolley coach Barb Morgan. "Blaine was unable to host their scheduled match so all those teams came down to Sedro-Woolley ...
"It was a great night with perfect weather and tons of girls all getting two matches."
Ellieanne Meyer won both her matches for the Cubs while Trinity Covert and Kaydence Shaner each won one apiece.

Coupeville Wolves 6
COUPEVILLE — The Hurricanes pushed their record to 7-1.
"We had a slow start and a poor night shooting, however our defensive rotations were very good," Mount Vernon Christian coach Jeff Droog said. "Kailey Faber made great choices offensively."
Faber finished with 18 points.
Coupeville Wolves 66,
Mount Vernon Christian Hurricanes 65
COUPEVILLE — The Hurricanes clawed back from being down at halftime to taking a lead in fourth quarter only to see the game slip away.
"I thought we played well enough to win," Hurricanes coach Pat Russell said. "We can't allow the officials to affect the end of games. We had our chances to seal the victory and simply did not finish out the game. It was a tough loss."
Mount Vernon Christian trailed by 12 at halftime and by nine at the end of the third quarter before storming back to take a five-point lead late in the game.
Hurricane turnovers and defensive miscues allowed the Wolves to close to 65-64 and they went up two following a pair of free throws.
Mount Vernon Christian's Davis Fogle — who finished with 21 points — took the ball the length of the court with time running out. However, his shot fell just short.
Bill DeJong scored 14 points and Julian Pedrosa tallied 10 for the Hurricanes, who are 5-3.
