Indians place just one wrestler at state tournament
Luke Mills' sixth place top effort for the Indians
The Scappoose Indians didn't quite get the performance they'd hoped for at the 4A state wrestling tournament last Friday and Saturday.
The Indians sent just seven wrestlers to state, and only 170-pounder Luke Mills managed to place. Mills won his opening match of the tournament with a pin, but then dropped into the consolation bracket with a loss in the second round.
Mills fought his way back with two decisions, but fell into the battle for fifth with another loss. He finished sixth overall.
Cody Jackson started off with a pin at 106 pounds, but then lost a decision. He came back with a decision before being eliminated.
Taylor Walden (113), Isaiah Goodrich (160), and Branden Bailey (285) lost their first-round matches, won a match and then were eliminated.
Devin Ray (220) faced the No. 2 seed in his first round match, but lost just 5-2. He came back with a 6-3 decision, a win by a pin, and then lost to Trevor Derra of Mazama in a 2-1 overtime decision. Derra would take fourth.
Jabin Pedro, a last minute addition to regionals, lost his first two matches.
