From the sideline: Federal Way High School junior London Houston is the ultimate competitor. She is 34-1 this season and recently eclipsed the 100-win mark. London has 90 pins with 104 wins. Although, her greatest feat may not be on the wrestling mat. She is taking a full load of rigorous college classes at Highline College. London became a two-time girls wrestling state champion at the WIAA Mat Classic XXXII State Wrestling Tournament last weekend at the Tacoma Dome. Last year, London was the 125-pound state champion, and this year she took home the 130-pound title.
