Wrestling: St. Helens updates from NW Duals day 2
Terry, Allen, Olmedo out for St. Helens
Missing many of their regular pieces, the St. Helens wrestling team found it difficult to compete with Cleveland in bracket competion, falling 53-24 on the second day of the NW Duals at Westview High School.
The Lions won just one of six duals on the first day, and lost second-ranked sophomore 182 pounder Myles Terry to an injury. St. Helens was also without heavyweights Mario and Miguel Olmedo, as well as 132-pounder Haidon Allen.
However, St. Helens still got a handful of positive results. Michael Bowen picked up a win by fall over Cleveland's Harper Lee in just 55 seconds at 138 pounds, and Logan Carter pinned Cleveland's Dylan Bringelson at 145 pounds.
The Lions will face Woodburn for third place in the sixth bracket.
