A wrestler for West Valley High School who was examined for a possible head or neck injury is OK today after a scare last night. Junior Sam Mooney was taken to Central Washington Hospital last night when he was slammed to the mat during his varsity match. The wrestler remained motionless for several moments as paramedics were called.
