[EDITOR’S NOTE: The following article is from our youngest-ever Contributor – 10-year old Isabel Herbruger – who submitted this story and photos as part of her effort to earn a Girl Scout badge for journalism, as well as qualify for a 4H photography project. She also has three brothers on the Highline wrestling team. We encourage residents of all ages to submit stories and photos for posting – for consideration, please email yours to [email protected]!] Photos and article by Isabel Herbruger, age 10 Last Thursday, the Pirates beat Kennedy High School in wrestling. The final score was 61 to 18. Kennedy’s points came from one pin and two forfeits. Highline pinned almost every Kennedy opponent they faced. Wednesday night, the Pirates won a close competition against Fife High School. The final score was 39 to 38, decided by a pin in the final match. Highline forfeited three and won six out of a total of fourteen matches. Four of those wins were pins. Fife had only two pins and one forfeit. The next match is tonight at 7 p.m. against Evergreen and Tyee at Evergreen High School. There is another wrestling event at 9 a.m. Saturday, Dec 20 at Highline High School.

  1. Way to go Isabel! These are great photos and an informative story. And everyone, ask Isabel how many Girl Scout cookies Isabel sold last year. Hint: the Girl Scouts need to create a new award for her level.
