St. Maries earns third place
Freeman, Wash. - Derek Charles won the 160-pound division with a 3-0 record and St. Maries placed third in the 12-team Freeman wrestling tournament Thursday.
"It's good to go to a tournament out of state and see some different styles," St. Maries coach Rodney Cochrane said. "Our leaders are stepping up and giving the younger guys some direction."
Cody Yearout (145) and Ray Flowers (135) placed third for the Lumberjacks with records of 3-1.
Colton Derry (112), Aaron Kolar (119), Joe Bloomsburg (140), Brandon Avalos (145), Jesse Johnson (189) and Devin Vint (215) each placed fourth.
"The guys can hold their heads high as a young team to go into a 12-team tournament and take third," Cochrane said. "They definitely earned it."
St. Maries next wrestles at the Priest River tournament Jan. 8.
WORLEY - Joelle Miller had 10 points, 11 rebounds, three assists and three steals for the Knights in a nonleague win against the Mustangs.
"Our kids off the bench really sparked us," Lakeside coach Ron Miller said. "Kim Duncan, Brianna Louie and Miaka Chittenden really put pressure on them and forced turnovers and created havoc for Deary in the second quarter and that's when we took control of the game."
Tah-wy-ah Davis scored 13 points for Lakeside (7-1), which faces Coeur d'Alene Charter on Tuesday at Holy Family Catholic School.
