In the span of a week, the Woodinville Falcons experienced the yin and yang of the universe.

Senior captains to leave a winning legacy

“The main thing about them is that they’re extremely committed individuals,” Christensen said. “They’re both pretty quiet, and they’re the first ones in here getting things set up and they’re the last ones to leave. They’re always helping people. They’re great all-around kids who have devoted themselves to wrestling.”
