Huff won all three of his matches by decision.

Honorable mention goes to Mapleton freshman Gabe Simington. He led scoring on the basketball court for the sailors with 19 points in two games last week. He also had three rebounds and three steals in the Sailors’ game against the Brookings-Harbor JV.
