Prep wrestling: Stanwood 57, Everett 21
Ayling's performance was grouped together by another great showing by the young Spartans' squad.
"Ayling is a kid that is just growing from week-to-week," said Stanwood head coach Ray Mather. "He's fought through a hyderextended elbow (this season). But he plugged out a win, and I was extremely proud."
Mather's undefeated Spartans are a team that consists of five sophomores, three juniors and just four seniors.
"We've got four seniors that are leading by example," said Mather. "We (as a team) have a good string of quality wrestlers that pushes each other everyday. I'm really proud of how we've progressed."
Other highlights for the match included the Stanwood's, West Weinert (113-pounds) pinning Orlando Villa in 1:18 to remain undefeated on the season. Seagulls' 138-pounder Jessie Lopez -- a state champion last year in the 132-pound division-- defeated Nathaniel Zinkand by decision 9-3.
