Kodiak’s Olivia Troxell pins a wrestler from Houston at the Robin Hervey Tournament in Kodiak earlier this season. 

The one-two punch of Olivia Troxell and Emily Lorring were at it again at the Grace Grizzly Shakedown. 

Kodiak’s two star wrestlers captured titles, leading the team to a ninth-place finish Saturday at Grace Christian Schools. 

Troxell earned her fourth consecutive title, pinning Homer’s Mina Casavasos in the opening round of the girls’ 119-pound championship match. 

Over the last four weekends, the sophomore has reeled off wins at the Top Dog Invitational in Nikiski, the Lancer Smith Memorial in Wasilla, the Robin Hervey in Kodiak and the Grizzly Shakedown.

Troxell wasn’t on the mat long at the Grizzly Shakedown, netting pins over Service’s McKaylie Luedde (0:22), East Anchorage’s (1:11) and Colony’s Grayce Stigen (2:36).

Lorring won all three of her matches to capture the girls’ 135-pound crown. 

The junior pinned South’s Victoriah Haakenson (1:38), Redington’s Emily Earl (0:31) and Homer’s Michelle Wells (2:49). 

Ella Hamilton went 1-3 at 130 pounds, while Hannah Finley was1-2 at 145 pounds. 

Garritt Roberts led the Kodiak boys, going 5-2 at 125 pounds. After losing in the second round, the freshman reeled off three straight wins before bowing out of the tournament with a loss to Colony’s Tj Clapp.

Ivan Rodriguez went 1-2 at 130 pounds, while Jerron Bruce went 1-2 at 140 pounds.

Kodiak tallied 69 points to place ninth in the 25-team field. 

This Friday and Saturday, the Bears will be at the Northern Lights Conference Championships.
