LHS wrestlers take first place

ESTACADA — The La Grande wrestling team took first place at the Estacada Tournament this weekend.

The Tigers finished with 246.5 team points, while Estacada placed second with 163.

Scappoose was third (152.5), Washougal was fourth (138) and Beaverton finished fifth (137.5).

“The stars aligned for us,” head coach Klel Carson said.

“Estacada is always a good preseason tournament. This is the first time we’ve won it. Couldn’t ask for a better start to the season. It was a great weekend.”

Every wrestler placed for La Grande.

Seth DeViney took first place at the 120-pound weight class, while teammate Taran Hardwick placed third.

Gunnar Long won the championship in the heavyweight division.

“I’m really proud of Gunnar. He’s stuck it out, and he beat some tough kids this weekend,” Carson said.

Cole Rohan had a second-place finish at 106 pounds.

Ryan Middleton finished in second place at 132 pounds, while David Jackman took second at 138 pounds.

Nic Kavanaugh wrestled his way to second place in the 152-pound weight class, while Caleb Woodward took second at 170 pounds.

At 182 pounds, Leon Fuller finished third, and Quentin Durfee placed fourth at 113 pounds.

In the 195-pound division, Max Leavitt wrestled to fourth place, while Tyler Isaacson placed fourth at 126 pounds.

Travis Hardwick (145 pounds) and Micah Fuller (220 pounds) both took fifth place in their divisions, and Jake Girard placed sixth at 160 pounds.

“I was kind of surprised that the kids stepped up as a team,” Carson said.

“To see how the whole team came together was great. We had outstanding performances all the way through.”

The Tigers will return to the mat Wednesday when they travel to Nyssa for a dual match.

La Grande will host the Muilenburg Tournament starting Friday.
