KRKO Russell and Hill Female Student Athlete of the Month-February 2023-Karianne Baldwin-Wrestler-Glacier Peak


Congratulations to our KRKO Russell & Hill Female Student Athlete of the Month for February 2023; junior Karianne Baldwin, State Champion Wrestler from Glacier Peak High School. Karianne won the WIAA 125 lb. title at the 2023 Class 3A/4A Mat Classic at the Tacoma Dome; defending her championship from a year ago.

Baldwin joined an elite group of Snohomish County wrestlers as she won her second state championship. Alivia White (Marysville Pilchuck), Chanel Siva (Stanwood) and Kiley Hubby (Glacier Peak/Lake Stevens) are the only other girls from Snohomish County to win multiple state titles. She’ll have the chance to tie White’s record of three next season. The victory pushed the unbeaten junior’s record to 50-0 this season, and 98-1 for her career. Karianne also holds a Purple Belt in Jiu-Jitsu.

Head girls wrestling coach at Glacier Peak is Jordan Gere.
