This weekend was a highlight in the careers of many a young grappler: The OSAA State Wrestling Championships at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Portland.
The Canby Wrestling Team sent an incredible nine athletes to state this year, including Logan Doman, who finished second in his weight class at the league championships two weeks ago, and Three Rivers League champion K’den McMullin.
The Cougar wrestlers have been preparing for this moment all season, and they came in ready to make some noise. Ethan Ensrud, Kaden Boyd and Doman won their first championship round matches by fall; Asher Chaffee took his first by decision, while Dominic Netter won his by major decision.
Doman made it the furthest this year, falling by three-round decision in the quarterfinals to Forest Grove’s Gavin Rice. Also competing at state this year were Nick Marquez, Brent Patterson and Juan Vargas.
Congratulations to Canby’s boys and girls’ wrestling teams on a fantastic season.
