5 Falcons place at Darrington tournament / Wrestling

The South Whidbey High School wrestling team took sixth out of 10 schools and five Falcons placed at the King of the Mountain Tournament Saturday, Jan. 11, in Darrington.

Seniors Aiden Coleman (182 pounds) and Dylan Davis (285) and junior Drew Aposhyan (126) all finished second, while senior Dayton Birchfield (170) and junior Caleb McArthur (152) grabbed third.

The tournament “went well” for the Falcons, according to coach Robbie Bozin. “Tough wrestling throughout the tournament.”

Bozin added that “these tournaments are all just a stepping stone to get to what we really want, and that is state.”

South Whidbey is halfway through the season, Bozin said, and “it’s time to buckle down physically and mentally.”

“As a coach, I want to take my whole team to state,” he added.

South Whidbey’s only female wrestler, Nicole Helseth, competed in the Highway 9 Championships in Arlington Saturday.

The 135-pound senior won one of three matches, pinning Ilaria Battisti of Rogers of Puyallup in 57 seconds.

South Whidbey’s lone home match of the season is 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 23, with Sultan.
