Wrestlers finish second at Oregon Classic

Sweet Home’s high school wrestling team finished second to Tillamook in the 4A tournament at the Oregon Classic Friday and Saturday in Redmond, a performance that left Coach Steve Thorpe pleased.

“I think we overachieved,” Thorpe said, noting that many of his wrestlers were competing one or two divisions above their normal weights due to injuries and other factors.

“We stepped into that tournament. It was a tournament in which guys unselfishly moved up a weight class to let someone else wrestle in their place. It was very much a team effort.”

Sweet Home defeated LaPine 64-15, then dispatched a tough Mollala squad 46-32 in the first round, before downing Ontario 51-23 and McLoughlin 39-28 to reach the semifinals against the state’s top-ranked team, Scappoose.

Behind pins from Scottie Stockman (103), Tyler Holly (112), Taylor Tagle (140) and a major decision by Brock Crocker at 152, the Huskies eked out a 37-30 win and a trip to the finals for their second match against the Cheesemakers in a week, despite losing 285-pounder Logan Clark to an injury default.

“We beat the number one-ranked team,” Thorpe said. “We train to beat people like that. That’s what we want to do.”

With Clark out of the lineup, the Huskies juggled positions and it caught up with them as Tillamook took a 39-28 win.

Thorpe said there were quality performances up and down the lineup.

“We had some guys, Jack Perry and Donny Roberts, who wrestled the entire tournament injured,” he said. “Brad Pitts has had mono and these were the first matches of the season for him.”

In the final against Tillamook, Pitts was pinned but Thorpe said he wasn’t sorry.

“Brad hasn’t had any mat time,” he said. “He was trying to win the dual, not the match, so he was going for the big win (when he was pinned).

He did a good job. It’s nice to have him back.”

He noted that Crocker finished the tournament undefeated and Athony Albright and Kyle Hummer both posted come-from-behind wins when the team needed them.

“Taylor Tagle looked very tough,” Thorpe said. “He also bumped up a weight and pinned a couple of people.”

He also cited the performance of the one “extra” wrestlers the Huskies took to the tournamnet, Marshall Arndt, who gave Scappoose state champion Seth Honl a match before being pinned at 4:47 and losing 2-0 to Tillamook state champion Dustin Woosley, and winning by a fall in his other match.

With the league schedule starting Thursday at Newport, Thorpe said it’s time to move on.

“It was a good weekend for Sweet Home wrestling,” he said. “I like where we are at.

The Huskies will have another chance at Tillamook Friday when they travel to the Cheesemakers’ tournament there after facing Newport on Thursday.

Their next home match is Jan. 29 against Central and Taft.
