The most exciting bout of the night came at 160 pounds where Jamerz Magomadov scored a takedown with 0:04 on the clock to earn a 7-5 win over Oregon City's Joshua Tuthill.
The Scots piled up 430 total points almost 150 more than runner-up Barlow.
David Douglas qualified 15 wrestlers for state. Roseburg will bring a state-best 19 to the Coliseum.
