Jan. 30 - Highline vs. SWOCC

Report from Head Coach Scott Norton

his weekend we were down in Coos Bay to wrestle Southwestern Oregon. We have some wrestlers that are trying to get healthy for the Region 18 Championships in two weeks. So we had a bit of an uphill battle because we forfeited 3 weights, all due to injuries, and left 3 starters on the couch. Highline picked up victories from Andrew Ramirez 133, who hasn’t been beat by a junior college wrestler at 133 lbs. Josh Smith 157, also looked dominant using a series of double leg takedowns to take out Leroy Santos 15 – 5. The other victory came as Tyler Noon beat Tyler Webley 5 – 2. I think our guys wrestled pretty well. What also hurt us was the closely contested matches at 165 and 184. Volodymyr Kalenin was in a tight match at 165, made a mistake in the third period and was caught on his back. Taylor Johnson had the same thing happen at 184. Neither have been in practice over the last week so they weren’t as prepared as they could have been. Highline will be in action at home on Feb. 13 for the Region 18 Championships that qualify each individual wrestler for the national tournament. There should be some great wrestling taking place there.

125 Fransisco Barrera(SWOCC) win by forfeit.
133 Andrew Ramirez (H) 3-2 over Beau Shatto(SWOCC)
141 Braydon Akeo(SWOCC )md. 16-3 over Cole Morrison(H)
