NICH JAMES takes a shot for a takedown against Stayton’s Clay Dickerson.

Sweet Home placed fourth at the 26-team Rose City Championship tournament Saturday, behind Newberg, which took home the team title, and two Washington schools.

Senior 132-pounder Kobe Olson and junior 145-pounder Ricky Yunke were the highest placers for Sweet Home, both finishing second.

Olson lost 6-0 to Westview’s Joey Coste, the defending 6A state champion.

“It was a good match,” Coach Steve Thorpe said. “Kobe was very dominant in the tournament, leading up to the final.”

Yunke lost by a fall in 3:47 to Sumner, Wash.’s Nathan James after pinning his way to the final.
