Lake Stevens wrestler runner-up at national tournament

Kiley Hubby was 1 of 3 area girls to earn All-America honors at Cadet/Junior nationals in Fargo.

Kiley Hubby, a rising senior at Lake Stevens High School, was the national freestyle runner-up at 152 pounds Wednesday in the Junior Women’s division at the 2019 Junior and Cadet National Championships at the FargoDome in Fargo, North Dakota.

Hubby was one of three area girls to earn All-America honors during the tournament, which began July 12 and finished Friday.

Marysville Pilchuck rising freshman Alivia White placed third in the Cadet (16-and-under) Women’s division at 164 pounds, and Snohomish rising junior Alycia Pidgeon took fifth place at the same weight. The top eight wrestlers at each weight class are recognized as All-Americans.

Hubby, who also finished second in Fargo last season in the Cadet division, won four matches, including one by fall, before losing 4-2 to Pennsylvania’s Tiffani Baublitz in the championship bout.

Baublitz was ranked fourth nationally and Hubby sixth entering the tournament. Baublitz took a 4-0 lead a minute into the first of two three-minute periods in the bout, and fought Hubby off the rest of the way to earn the national crown.

White, competing in Fargo for the first time, won her first three bouts, two via pinfall, before losing 10-0 to Illinois’ Kennedy Blades in the semifinal round. Blades beat Hubby for the national title last season, and went on to defend her crown this year.

White rebounded to win a consolation bout by fall before pinning California’s Alyssa Arana to earn third place.

Pidgeon won her first bout by fall, but lost 12-0 to Arana in her second-round match. She bounced back to earn a pair of tight victories by decision in consecutive elimination matches before losing by fall in the consolation semifinals, dropping her into the fifth/sixth place match. Pidgeon pinned Kiersten O’Neill of Indiana to take home fifth place.

On the boys’ side, Lake Stevens rising freshman Jake Hubby — Kiley’s younger brother — went 3-2 in Cadet freestyle and 4-2 in Cadet Greco-Roman, both at 106 pounds.

Marysville Pilchuck rising senior Cayden White — Alivia’s older brother — went 3-2 in Junior freestyle and 2-2 in Junior Greco-Roman, both at 182 pounds.

Isaac Gust, who graduated from Lake Stevens in June, went 1-2 in Junior freestyle and reached the quarterfinals of the Junior Greco-Roman bracket at 182 before a comeback attempt fell short in a 7-6 decision against Josh LaBarbera of Illinois. Gust trailed 7-1 with 2:17 to go in the match before rallying to within a point.

In all, 15 area wrestlers (11 boys, four girls) competed during the week, and the tournament featured freestyle and Greco-Roman brackets for boys in both the Cadet and Junior divisions, and freestyle for girls in both divisions.
