Something will be missing Saturday from the Oregon Trail/Brian Muilenburg Wrestling Invitational.

For the first time since the tournament started in 1978, a La Grande wrestler wont be involved in a championship bout.

The Tigers top grapplers seniors Adam Kleck and Austin Zander and junior Levi Hug were upset early.

Im a little disappointed for a couple of the guys, La Grande coach Miles Hancock said. In all three cases, it came down to not executing and flat getting out-wrestled.

Pendletons Justin Carter beat Hug 14-3 in the third round, Capitals Matt Racine pinned Zander in one minute, 28 seconds in the second round, and Kleck was pinned by Bakers Doug Hills in the second round in 3:20.

Overall, our guys are putting out good effort, Hancock said. With a lot of youth, you cant expect these guys to win some of the tighter matches.

We have everybody still in the tournament. I hope we plug away and get guys in for a placing.

Pendleton leads the way at the 16-team tournament with 116 points. Greshams Barlow High School is runner-up at 107.

La Grande is in 12th place with 34 points, Enterprise is 13th at 32, Elgin is 14th at 19, Wallowa is 15th with eight and North Powders six points puts it at 16th.

Area wrestlers still alive for a tournament title include Enterprises Jake McCleary (112 pounds) and Joe Osborn (152), and Elgins Brian Sanders (135) and Blake Eckstein (215).
