Sandy, which took third at the OSAA Class 5A State Championships last year, won Saturday's 14-team tournament with 207 points. The Indians (112 points) were fifth.

"We have four returning wrestlers [Broadbent, Cody Erhardt, Braxton Sue and Tyler Cooper] with state experience, two of which [Broadbent and Sue] are looking to place for their third straight year," Scappoose coach Nick Byrd said. "While this is a younger group as a whole, we also have some top-level wrestlers in the room."

Scappoose was fourth at the Class 4A State Championships with 121.5 points last season, where Broadbent was fourth at 195 pounds and Sue was fifth at 120 pounds.

Broadbent, first in the oregonwrestler.com preseason ranks, claimed the title on Saturday with a pin of Washougal (Wash.) senior Ruben Aguilar in 3:10.

Sue, ranked third, took second at 138 after ceding a 6-3 decision to Sandy senior Zachary Wigzell.

Erhardt, ranked tied for sixth, took second at 170 after losing a 5-2 decision to Churchill senior Justin Kearney.

Zeddy Jamerson finished fourth at 182 after yielding a 10-0 major decision to Banks senior Brock Smith.

Jhamante Woods was fifth at 220 after he and Astoria senior Tristen Osborne accepted double forfeits.

Jack Eggers took sixth at 152 after falling to Washougal junior John Gable in 3:16.

The Indians rank eighth in oregonwrestler.com's OSAA Class 4A preseason rankings.

"Our group is very growth oriented and is looking to improve every week," Byrd said. "They understand that it takes a lot of hard work in order to achieve at a high level, and we have a core group that is motivated and putting in the work needed. This group has bought in to Scappoose wrestling and truly embodies what is means to be part of the wrestling community in Scappoose. The main goal of this team is to wrestle our best at the regional and state tournament."
