Danica Barto was the Wolves’ lone representative at Chugiak for the first gymnastics meet of the season Friday, Aug. 25. But the junior gymnast didn’t compete. Instead, Barto watched the Mustangs defeat East High 181.90 to 130.35 from the stands.
Blood squirted from Travis Craig’s nose like water escaping a pinhole leak in a water balloon.
He got off easy.
Craig’s broken nose forced him out of Saturday’s Cook Inlet Conference bloodbath at Anchorage Football Stadium in the first quarter, leaving him safe from further punishment as Service handed the Mustangs a 42-6 loss that wasn’t nearly as close as the score indicated.
Chugiak and Eagle River each took big losses on Saturday night. The Mustangs fell 42-6 to Service at Anchorage Football Stadium, while the Wolves dropped a 48-21 decision to Bartlett at Tom Huffer Sr. Stadium in Chugiak.
Chugiak's loss dropped the Mustangs to 2-1 in the Cook Inlet Conference and overall. Eagle River fell to 0-2 in the CIC and 0-3 overall.
