Prep notebook: Arlington girls wrestling makes history

The Eagles fielded a full dual-meet lineup for the first time Wednesday night.

The Arlington High School girls wrestling team made history Wednesday night.

For the first time ever, the Eagles fielded a complete lineup in a dual meet. Arlington used its depth to beat Edmonds-Woodway 72-11 and Lynden 48-36 in a double dual at Arlington High School.

“That’s something we are really proud of as a team,” Eagles assistant coach Ali Hendricks said of fielding a wrestler in each weight class.

The full lineup is a reflection of the growth of the Arlington program. A total of 24 girls turned out this year, Hendricks said.

“Last year, we were down four weight classes and we couldn’t get them filled,” she said.

One of the stars of Wednesday’s double dual was Arlington senior Janet Velez. Wrestling at 105 pounds, Velez recorded a pin in each match. Against Lynden, her pin in the final contest of the meet secured the Eagles’ 12-point victory.

Kylany excels at combine

Lake Stevens junior Devin Kylany was one of five offensive linemen named to 247Sports’ All-Combine team from the National Combine held earlier this month in San Antonio, Texas.

The National Combine, held in conjunction with the annual All-American Bowl, is a three-day event featuring 600 of the nation’s top underclassmen. Modeled after the NFL Combine, the National Combine features various football drills and athletic tests.

Kylany, who stands 6-foot-5 and weighs 285 pounds, starred at left tackle during the Vikings’ run to the Class 4A state title game this past season, helping pave the way for a high-powered rushing attack that averaged 7.6 yards per carry and 250 yards per game.

South Whidbey standout honored

South Whidbey boys basketball player Kody Newman was named an Athlete of the Week by the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association for the period of Dec. 16 through Jan. 5.

The senior standout recorded 30 points, six rebounds, five assists, eight steals and a block in the Falcons’ rout of Sultan on Jan. 4.

Newman then hit five 3-pointers and finished with 26 points, four assists and three rebounds in a 52-50 win over Bellevue Christian on Jan. 5. Newman played all 32 minutes in the game.
