Bowmen wrestle strong at Classic

Sherwood also gets a league dual win over Milwaukie


It turned out to be a pretty good week for the Sherwood High School wrestling team.

First, the Bowmen scored a dramatic 35-34 dual meet win over Milwaukie and then they followed that up with a strong performance at the Oregon Wrestling Classic, held Friday and Saturday in Redmond.

“It was a great weekend,” Sherwood coach William Taylor said.

In the Bowmen’s dual meet win over Milwaukie, in a match held Jan. 16 at Milwaukie High School, Sherwood junior Martin Layna wrapped up the team win with a victory by fall in the 220-pound match.

But, maybe the key match may have been the 185-pound bout, where Sherwood junior Corey Keohane avoided getting pinned, saving a point.

“That made the difference,” Taylor said.

With the victory, Sherwood improved to 3-1 in Northwest Oregon Conference matches.

At the Oregon Wrestling Classic, the Bowmen fell 61-21 to Hood River Valley and 51-21 to Dallas before posting a 39-35 win over Bend in pool play.

In the bonus rounds, Sherwood fell 46-33 to West Albany and then the Bowmen downed 58-23.

Junior Andrew Rice, wrestling at 160 pounds, led the way for the Bowmen at the Classic, going 5-0 in his matches.

Sherwood freshman Jesse Hatfield, at 113 pounds, went 4-1 at the Classic. He got all four of his wins by fall and his only loss was to a defending state champion.

Bowmen junior Ryan Jurgens also went 4-1 at the Classic with his only loss coming against a defending state champion.

The Sherwood squad will be back in action tonight (Thursday) when it hosts Rex Putnam in a NWOC match set to start at 7 p.m. at Sherwood High School.
