IN PHOTOS: Warriors pace PIL in wrestling again

The Cleveland Warriors dominated the Portland Interscholastic League city championships in wrestling for the third year in a row.

The Warriors, with five individual champions and six runners-up, piled up 409 1/2 points. That was more than double the total of any team except second-place Roosevelt, which scored 245 points.

The annual meet took place Wednesday and Thursday at Marshall.

Franklin, Jefferson and Lincoln each had two individual champs.

Roosevelt heavyweight Semise Kofe, the defending Class 5A champion, edged Wilson's Bobby Powers 3-2 for the league title and earned one of two most valuable wrestler honors from the tournament.

The other MVP award, for weight classes 106 through 145, went to Jefferson's Jasiah Williams, who took first place at 132 pounds.

Cleveland had won the 2013 city championships with 420 point. Wilson second that year with 204.

In 2012, the Warriors won with 447 points, with Wilson second at 253 1/2.
