CHS downs
weak ML

Rankings mean nothing at this juncture of the high school wrestling season. In high school wrestling, it’s all about the post-season.
That said, top-ranked Freeman High served notice in the strongest Class 1A wrestling league in the state that the Scotties will be a force to be reckoned with once District rolls around early next month.
Last Wednesday on the home mat, Colville eased past Medical Lake 60-18 in a mismatch that took all of 20-minutes to complete and included nine forfeits.

The Cougars have been hampered by slow starts all season. Last week was no exception. Chewelah was outscored 41-14 in the first quarter. Head coach Jason Norman is at a bit of a loss as to why this keeps happening.
