Reyes and Dougharity step to the top of the podium

WRESTLING - David Douglas sneaks past Crater for the second-place team trophy
by: David Ball Barlow senior Mick Dougharity lets loose with scream after pinning Oregon City's Mike McCoy in Saturday's 220-pound wrestling final.

East County crowned two champions Saturday night at the 6A state wrestling tournament with Josh Reyes of David Douglas winning the 138-pound bracket and Barlow's Mick Dougharity winning at 220 pounds.

After a scoreless first period, Reyes took command of his finals match with a takedown and near-fall en route to a 10-3 decision over Roseburg's Brody Faas. The win also pushed the Scots past Crater by half a point to claim the second-place team trophy.

Dougharity didn't let an opponent into the third round during the entire tournament, capping it off with a fall 3:46 into his title bout against Oregon City's Michael McCoy.

Barlow sent two others into finals Saturday night with Colby Winnett (132) and Jacob Childs (170) earning runner-up honors.

Roseburg won the team crown with 237 points - 135 more than the second-place Scots. The title is the Indians' fifth in the last six years.
