Shorewood and Stanwood girls wrestling teams
By Clark Norton

It was the dawning of a new era on Tuesday night as the Shorewood girls wrestling team had their first dual meet, not just of the season, but ever. For their inaugural meet the StormRays faced off against the Spartans of Stanwood High School. 

It was also the first ever dual meet for the Stanwood girls team. This is the first year both schools have passed the Washington Interscholastic Athletic Association’s (WIAA) minimum requirement of eight wrestlers for a dual meet team.

Shorewood senior captain Abby Tveit, who started wrestling on the Einstein boys team in 7th grade, was first up at 140 pounds. The match went back and forth and was tied 9-9 with 30 seconds left in the final period before Stanwood secured a pin with 14 seconds left. 

StormRay Aly Fellores came out at 145 pounds and it was another barnburner. Fellores used two first period takedowns to build a lead as she controlled the bout on her way to a third period pin to tie the team score at 6-6. Shorewood’s first lead came courtesy of a second round pin by sophomore Izzy Crave in the 155 pound matchup.

A decision, a pin, and a forfeit stretched the StormRays’ lead to 27-6. Freshman Finley Houck went out in the 110 pound bout and dominated her way to a first round pin to lock in the team victory. 

The intensity was not over though. In the 120 pound match senior captain Fiona Blair took a 5-2 lead into the third period, but could not hold on as penalties tied it up and forced overtime. 

Each of the first two overtime periods was scoreless, bringing up a sudden death 20 second final overtime. Blair scored an escape with moments to spare for a hard fought 7-6 win as Shorewood went on for a 42-12 team victory.
