Mikayla Elfrank wins Langley Middle boxing title | NOTABLE

Fists flew at Langley Middle School.

Instead of referrals, detentions or suspensions, students were handed awards after a school-wide boxing tournament at Langley Middle School.

From the 33-kid pool, Mikayla “Bonecrusher” Elfrank won first place. In a news release, Elfrank is colorfully described as, “the golden gloves angel of pummel, the lightning hands of Langley, the master of disaster, the queen of the ring.”

Students competed through five rounds in front of 10 judges April 12. A six-way tie for fifth place occurred among Rebekah Merrow, Lauren Demareau, Justin Gonzalez, Lake Smith, Lewis Pope and Seth Daley, each of whom scored 72 points.

Cameron Asay claimed fourth place. Bethany Justus finished in third place and Will Simms finished in second place.
