WESLEY CHAPEL — Before most teams got their first event of the season in next week, Windermere’s girls team had its second trip over to the greater Tampa area on Saturday afternoon.
Competing in Wiregrass Ranch’s Princess Punchout, the Lady Wolverines finished 12th in the 13-team event, scoring 12 points.
Two Windermere wrestlers competed on Saturday, with freshman Emily McCormack (140) placing sixth at 140. McCormack’s two losses were to ranked competitors — Bell Creek’s Fikayo Aroyewun (135-5th, in the second match between the pair) and to Immokalee’s Genesis Turrubiartez (130-11th), but a pin over another Immokalee wrestler assured another placing finish.
At 170, Lady Wolverine sophomore Sarah Viers picked up her first win of the season, a pin over Admiral Farragut, and that got her advanced enough to place sixth. Viers also had a loss to a ranked wrestler, Admiral Farragut’s Alyssa Dunn (155-18th), in the consi semis.
The top ranked team in the field, Boca Ciega (13th), had no individual champions, but topped the team standings with a 39.5-point win over Bell Creek and Immokalee, 177.5-138.
Windermere will have a home event for its next competition — and the area’s next event as well — on Tuesday night, as Ocoee, Wekiva & West Orange will all participate in the Lady Wolverines’ roundrobin.
