Cora Orton and Kristen Gaines stepped away from competing locally for the Sedro-Woolley Steelclaw wrestling club in order to represent the state.

The duo was part of Team Washington at the Turf War Duals in Pocatello, Idaho.

Gaines wrestled at 92 pounds on the middle school dual meet team, while Orton wrestled at 112 on the high school team.

Team Washington grappled in both Greco Roman and freestyle formats against squads from Utah, Hawaii, Colorado, California, Idaho and Nevada.

The Washington high school and middle school teams finished first in both styles.

In freestyle, Orton went undefeated.
