Emotional ending for Washougal wrestlers
Tuesday, February 19, 2013
Neither Sara Sanchez nor Erin Locke could have made it to the Tacoma Dome alone.
"Having such a tough partner to work with every day makes you a better wrestler," Sanchez said. "One of us usually goes on before the other one. It's like tagging in your partner. Now it's your turn."
Sanchez and Locke each won their first round matches in the girls state tournament Friday, but got caught on the wrong end of pin falls in the quarterfinals. Both Panthers fought through to Saturday and wrestled three more matches to get a medal.
