Sandpoint prepped for the decibel competition as the mats were rolled out for the wrestling portion of Friday night's Battle of the Paddle against Lakeland.
The Bulldogs got a pair of pins from Jorden Tyler (195) and Calvin Hinds (220).
"Calvin had to go way up to wrestle at 220," head coach Doug Fry said. "He had to give up about 20 pounds to wrestle him and he pinned him."
Dakota Rief (160) had a huge match for the Bulldogs.
"He's a guy that stepped up and got a win which he's going to remember for the rest of his life," Fry said.
Freshman Jeremiah Palmer (182) was awarded winner by decision.
"He came out there and did great," Fry said.
Ashlei Hawkins (126) won his match by major technical and Andrew Duke (106) lost his match by decision.
"It was a tough match for Andrew because it was against a guy he's been looking at all year," Fry said. " I'm glad it happened now if it had to happen because now he has time to prep and get it together."
Aiden Roark wrestled at 113 which was up a weight class from his normal standing but lost to Lakeland's Duke Williamson.
There were a few points Sandpoint lost to weight class forfeit and the Hawks took the team win, 52-30 over the Bulldogs.
On the spirit side of things, the decorations were judged, Sandpoint won the boat race competition, and both teams showcased their dance team's performances.
Sandpoint heads to Thompson Falls today for its next match.
