Boxers drop to Cumberlands, Menlo in final duals of season

02/17/2008 -

FOREST GROVE ­ Pacific dropped their final duals before the upcoming NCWA
Nationals Saturday, falling to both Cumberlands (Ky.) and Menlo Saturday in
womenıs wrestling action at the Pacific Athletic Center.

Cumberlands won all but one of their matches by fall to take home a 34-3
victory over the Boxers. A pair of forfeits in favor of Menlo propelled the
Oaks to a 23-10 victory. Both matches were wrestled folkstyle. Cumberlands
and Menlo participated in a freestyle match later in the afternoon, with
Cumberlands winning 34-6.

Summer Scott (Jr., Castro Valley, Calif.) won the only match for the Boxers
against the Patriots. Scott wrestled back from a deficit at Norma Rurda at
55 kilograms and needed the riding time point to wrap up a 5-4 victory.

Valerie Prise (Sr., Diamond Bar, Calif.) opened the match against Menlo with
a decisive victory at 48 kilograms, dominating Maria Henriquez in a 15-3
major decision. A forfeit at 51 kilograms and a pair of victories by
Katherine Fulp-Allen at 55 kilograms and Carla OıConnell at 59 kilograms put
Menlo ahead for good at 13-4.

Samantha Stych (Fr., Oxnard, Calif.) revered the trend by grinding out Leann
Michel in an action-packed match, rallying to pick up a 12-9 victory at 63
kilograms. Jade Anderson (Fr., Simi Valley, Calif.) brought Pacific to
within three points with a victory at 67 kilograms, beating Ashlee
Evans-Smith 8-3.

Monique Cabrera wrapped up the victory for Menlo with a 23-9 major decision
at 72 kilograms, while Brittany Caolie accepted a forfeit at 80 kilograms.

Pacific will now have three weeks of preparation for the first womenıs
wrestling championships to be held by the National Collegiate Wrestling
Association. The national meet will be held Mar. 14-15 in Lakeland, Fla.
It will be Pacificıs first national meet to be wrestled folkstyle.
