Roseburg thumps North Medford 57-12 in SWC dual
The Roseburg High wrestling team scored a convincing Southwest Conference dual meet win over North Medford on Wednesday night, whipping the Black Tornado 57-12 in Medford.
The Indians are ranked No. 1 and North Medford No. 3 in Class 6A by Oregon Wrestling Forum. Roseburg is No. 2 and N.M. No. 5 in the OSAAtoday coaches’ poll.
Roseburg won nine of 12 contested matches and received two forfeits against the Tornado.
Winning by fall for the Tribe were Carson Dunn at 106 pounds, Darian Thacker at 160, Logan Folsom at 170, Owen Vredenburg at 182 and Hunter Hillard at 195. Kaden Schlatter (120) posted a technical fall, Austin David won by major decision and Archer Bergeron (138) and Mason Labahn (285) each won by decision.
Nash Singleton (113) and Devin Folk (132) won by forfeit.
“For the most part, we were good,” RHS coach Steve Lander said. “We gave up a couple of matches, but got a couple, too. Archer (Bergeron) had a good win, Austin (David) had a dominant performance, Darian (Thacker) got us more bonus points and Mason (Labahn) beat a good kid.”
Roseburg will head to Hillsboro early Friday morning to compete in the Reser’s Tournament of Champions at Liberty High School. The tournament runs through Saturday.
“We’re looking forward to it,” Lander said. “It’s our last tournament before district. The JVs will get a good quality tournament similar to district and state, and that will be beneficial to us. The varsity gets to wrestle against guys they’ve lost to.”
