Highline Wrestling

Nov. 22, 2015   Spokane Open  (Report from Head Coach Scott Norton)

Andrew Ramirez was the wrestler of the meet for the Spokane Open.  He had a tough day on Saturday, but then led the entire team on Sunday through a difficult tournament.  Andrew made the finals by stringing a long a series of close matches over some very tough competitors.  Andrew lost by a point to Tyler Wicken of Clackamas in the finals to finish 2nd overall.  I can gaurantee that Andrew will beat him when it counts.

Andrew has some of the best technique on the team.  If you haven¹t seen him wrestle you should probably make a trip to see a meet.  He is a good one.  We are very proud of the way he competed yesterday.


Nov. 21, 2015 - Big Win at the North Idaho Duals
Report from Head Coach Scott Norton  
In the first dual of the day, we had wrestling powerhouse North Idaho. However, I think it was our day.  We got off to a quick start as Andres Tereza ranked #4 nationally teched 2 x state champ Trey Long at 125. However, the tables quickly turned as Jay R Small and Andrew Ramirez were pinned at 133 and 141. That put NIC out in front of the meet 12 – 5. Freshman Tino Nieves came through with a decision at 149. Then Josh Smith beat Alex Aguilar at 157 which brought the meet to 11-12 NIC. They put a little more distance between us when Angel Aguilar was pinned at 165. The tables turned again as Taylor Johnson came through with a victory at 174, followed by Tyler Noons win at 184. Then #4 ranked Elias Mason came away with a tech fall at 197. Lastly, Jacob Apodaca lost at hwt. It was a great team win. I was very proud of the way our guys wrestled. It was also the second time Highline has ever beaten NIC.

Gutsy Win On the Road
Nov. 25 - with only eight players available for a road game, Highline put together a gutsy effort in knocking off the host Shoreline Dolphins 62-52 stats for the team's first win of the season. After playing even throughout most of the game the Thunderbirds moved out to a 10 point lead at the end of the third quarter and withstood a Shoreline run following a key timeout called by Highline Head Coach Amber Rowe-Mosley. The Dolphins were unable to close to within more than five points before Highline closed out the game in the last two minutes.
The T-Birds, showing a balanced offensive attack, were led in scoring by Alyson Rippingham with 15 points. Holly Sugges followed with 12 points, including 3-7 from three-point range, and Chantal Hill added 10 points. Jasmine Hansgen pulled down a team high10 rebounds.
The deciding factor in the game was the poor shooting of Shoreline. While Highline only managed 35% from the field, the Dolphins shot a miserable 28%. This was enough to allow Highline to overcome its 28 turnovers and being outscored in points off of turnovers and second chance points.
Now at 1-3 for the season, the women next take to the court on Dec. 4, participating in the Bellevue Classic tournament.

Good to Be Home

Nov. 28 – Highline jumped off to a quick lead and never looked back in cruising to a 76-62 stats  win over the Wenatchee Valley Knights.  Jamie Orme of the Thunderbirds led both teams with 21 points and 10 rebounds while Alex Meyerhoeffer (13 points), Jared Murphy (12 points) and Coby Myles (10 points) all scored in double-figures for Highline.  Wenatchee Valley was led by Bryan Michaels with 20 points and nine rebounds. With the win the T-Birds improve to 2-1 for the season.

The first half saw the Thunderbirds, shooting 53% from the field, go ahead by double-digits after 10 minutes and expand it to a 47-31 lead at the half.  The second half saw the lead climb as high as 22 points before Wenatchee Valley made a run to cut the lead to eight points with six minutes to go but could not get any closer. 

Highline’s next two games are on the road, Dec. 2 at Skagit Valley and Dec. 5 at Shoreline before engaging in the Bellevue Tournament (Dec. 11-13), the Whatcom Crossover Tournament (Dec. 18-20) and the North Idaho Tournament (Dec. 28-30).  The team returns home and starts the new year with a home game on Jan. 4 against Bellevue College.
