Big cats of Clark County
Tuesday, January 15, 2013
When it comes to girls wrestling, the Washougal Panthers are still the big cats of Clark County.
The defending champions scored 107 points to beat 15 other schools and stand on top of the mountain for the second year in a row Saturday, at Skyview High School.
Jessica Eakins, Erin Locke and Sara Sanchez were crowned individual Clark County champions. Yaneli Martinez and Katelyn Purkeypyle also reached the championship round, but settled for second place. Tara Duey and Romney Kellogg took third place, and Emily Alder-Storm finished in fourth place.
"It feels good to share this moment with my teammates," Locke said. "We beat each other up in practice every day. Sometimes you wonder if it's worth it. When everybody on the team works hard for the same goal and you get it, those are the moments when it really pays off."
