The Scappoose Indians got almost everything they wanted out of the Cowapa League district wrestling tournament on Saturday in Seaside-they had six district champions, and qualified 16 wrestlers for the regionals this Saturday at North Marion.
The Indians weren't able to match Tillamook's depth for the team title, but they made it up with higher finishes. The 'Mooks had just three district champions. Tillamook put two wrestlers in each weight class (28 in all), while Scappoose had just 20. The Indians were short-handed and had no entries in the 182-pound and 195-pound weight classes due to injuries.
'We had a good tournament,' Scappoose coach Jim Jones said. 'Obviously we had some kids that performed well. You always hope for a bit more, but we pretty much met what our team expectations were.'
The regional tournament, which qualifies four wrestlers to state, gets under way at 10 a.m. at North Marion High School Saturday. Eight wrestlers are in each bracket-four from each district. Championships are slated for 5 p.m. Scappoose originally qualified 15 wrestlers for district, but will also take 220-pounder Jabin Pedro, because the other district didn't have a fourth wrestler.
Scappoose made their mark at the daylong tournament at Seaside, and finished the tournament with pins in the last two weight classes for district titles.
Highlights for the Indians included:
-Cody Jackson, 106-pounds, beat Collin Purington of Banks for the first time in six years to win the championship finals.
-Chris Wagner, unbeaten this season, breezed through the 120-pound weight class with pins in 24 seconds in the semifinals and 46 seconds in the finals.
-Ryan Bond, the No. 2 seed, posted a decision and a pin to earn the finals where he faced teammate Hunter Hoyt, who upset No. 1 seed Jed Coon of Tillamook 4-1 in the early going. The Scappoose pair were tied most of the final match, until Bond jumped ahead in the third round.
-Isaiah Goodrich wrestled smart to eke out a 5-4 win in the championship round to defeat Jonas Aayla-Sanchez of Tillamook.
-Brandon Bailey (285) and Devin Ray (220) started their championship matches at the same time, each fell behind 1-0 in the first round, and each won by a pin within eight seconds of each other to finish the district competition.
