The Mount Baker Mountaineers may have taken first place at last weekend’s sub regional wrestling tournament at Squalicum high school, but their performance did not stop the Borderites from securing a third place overall finish and advancing 10 wrestlers to regional competition this coming weekend.
Blaine’s boy’s basketball teams has won two games this year. Squalicum’s team has won two consecutive state championships. While the fab five that brought those trophies to Whatcom county has moved on, the program continues.
The Borderites were unable to hold onto a 21-5 opening lead halfway into last Wednesday’s wrestling meet at Mt. Baker high school and succumbed to the Mountaineers’ pin-happy middle and heavyweights, losing the Northwest Conference (NWC) regular season wrestling title 47-2
