Three of Lindbergh’s female wrestlers competed during the school’s senior night, taking two wins and a loss.

The three athletes were senior Riley Omonaka, in the 115 pound weight class; junior Keilani Jollimore, in the 170 weight class; and freshman Ell Vergava, in the 105 pound weight class.

The three wrestled against other female wrestlers from Renton High School. Omonaka won her match by pinning her opponent in the second round. Jollimore also won her match by pinning her opponent in the first round. Vergava “wrestled a great match,” according to Vicki Maddy, but lost after being pinned in the third round with less than 10 seconds remaining on the clock.

Check out some photos from the event.

The team, part of the “Gear to the Max” division championship game, took the tournament title after winning all four games. The Patriots competed against California teams from the cities of Stevenson, Calipatria, and Rancho Mirage, and a Canyon Springs, Nevada team. Players Tyler Anderson and Josh Chung were named for the all-tournament team and senior captain Jeff Yamada was named tournament MVP. Coach Omar Parker said this was due in large part to his defensive efforts during the games. Before this, the team has also won 10 of its last 11 games, including seven games in a row. Once back from the California tournament, the team went on to win against Lake Washington and Bellevue in tough away games, Parker said.
