Tulalip wrestler wins championship

Demitri Robinson becomes first Tulalip tribe state wrestling champ[W]hile proudly wearing black, long-sleeved shirts with the words TULALIP WRESTLING in red across the front, Hatch and Fryberg watched from a few feet away as Demitri Robinson made history.

Robinson became the tribe's first state wrestling champion when the Tulalip Heritage freshman upset Oroville's Bryce Woodruff in the 103-pound final of the B classification.

"I can't speak for everybody (in the tribe), but as one of the tribal leaders, it's big to me," said Hatch, who helps out as an assistant wrestling coach at Marysville-Pilchuck. "To be able to step in as a freshman and win it, that's great."
