Top girls wrestler Hubby transfers to Lake Stevens

The reigning WIAA state champion and nationally-ranked junior was at Glacier Peak last season.

Kiley Hubby, the reigning Washington Interscholastic Activities Association state girls wrestling champion at 145 pounds and one of the most decorated prep wrestlers — male or female — in Snohomish County has transferred from Glacier Peak High School to Lake Stevens and has made at least two appearances for the Vikings this season.

Hubby, a junior currently ranked third in the nation at 152 pounds in the National Girls High School wrestling rankings, competed in the 160-pound weight class at the Everett Classic on Jan. 5 and at the Arlington JV Rumble on Jan. 12. Both events were boys tournaments.

Neither Lake Stevens wrestling coach Brent Barnes, Glacier Peak wrestling coach Bryan Mossburg nor Adam Aney, Hubby’s club coach with Snohomish-based Bad Draw Wrestling Club, responded to requests for comment.

Hubby won her first state title last season as a sophomore at Glacier Peak after finishing third as a freshman at 140 pounds in 2017, and her star has been on the rise both in Washington and on the national scene ever since.

She won the 161-pound bracket of the High School Varsity division at the Women’s West Coast Tournament of Champions in December of 2017, and followed that up with a dominant run to the Mat Classic crown in February 2018, two titles at the U.S. Marine Corps Junior Folkstyle Nationals in March 2018 and, representing Bad Draw, won the girls 15-and-under 155-pound division at the World of Wrestling Reno World Championships for a second consecutive season in April 2018.

Hubby then stormed to the finals at the Cadet/Junior National Championships in Fargo, North Dakota, in July, falling to Kennedy Blades of Illinois. Blades is the top-ranked 152-pounder in the national poll.

At Lake Stevens, Hubby will be under the tutelage of Barnes, who in addition to being a Washington State Wrestling Coaches Association Hall of Famer and winner of 11 Mat Classic team titles, has coached on the international level for USA wrestling, most recently as an assistant for Team USA’s women at the 2017 World Junior Championships in Tampere, Finland.
