Feb. 6, 2019 — While Siuslaw wasn't able to advance anyone from its four-member girls wrestling team beyond district last weekend, it was an outstanding season for the team, which will return three of its four wrestlers next season.
During Friday's opening round of the first-ever girls state qualifier, all four Lady Vikings were dealt losses, with freshmen Hayden Muller (130 lbs.) and Bailey Overton (115 lbs.), and senior Kenga Bugajska, advancing into Saturday's second round of competition.
Sophomore Adriana Edwards (130 lbs.) lost her first two matches and didn't advance.
Muller was the only Viking to open the match with a win, pinning Sydney Bockway of Grant Union just 52 seconds into the second round (2:52).
She lost her second match of the day but went on to defeat Chantel Ramirez of Henley in the first match of day two.
Muller eventually lost by fall to Natanee Campbell of Mazama (:47).
Meanwhile, No. 3 seed Overton lost her first match in sudden victory (-1, 5-3) but qualified for day two after landing two pins in the consolation round, which included wins over Faith Hansel of South Medford (5:11) and Kora Lynch of South Eugene in just 58 seconds.
She eventually lost by forfeit to Ashley Henry of Grant Union.
Bugajska scored 4 team points, losing two matches and pinning Asha Orlinski of Thurston (1:51) to go 1-2 at the state qualifier.
