Wrestlers finish in tourney top half

By Alli Hand - Staff Reporter



Led by Mitchell Owens, Highline's wrestling team placed 11th at the Spokane Open this past Sunday, Nov. 19.

Owens took third place in the 187-pound weight class. His opponent, Bob Coleman had already wrestled six matches that day and due to NCAA rules he was forced to withdraw from the final match, putting Owens in third place.

Simon Fraser University placed first out of the 29 schools who competed.

Highline's Liam Corbett surprisingly returned from his leg injury that was inflicted last week and wrestled in the 157-pound weight class. Corbett fell to Chandler Michael of Southern Oregon and did not place.

"Liam did ok this weekend he will get better each match. The big thing for Liam is being confident in his ability to score points," said Head Coach Scott Norton.

Austin Lister, a 133-pound class sophomore who dominated last week, unfortunately fell to Elijah Ozuna of Clackamas in Lister's third match on Sunday.

Highline's wrestling team also faced North Idaho last Saturday Nov. 18 and was defeated 40-9.

This was Highlines second time facing North Idaho. Though their first match was 39-7, Assistant Coach Bradley Luvaas thinks the team performed much better the second time around.

"We performed much better, although the score does not reflect that due to some unforeseen circumstances we had to forfeit a couple of more weights than usual," Luvaas said.

The team will next compete Dec. 2 in Portland, Ore.. at the Clackamas Duals.
