PORTLAND — Logan Doman returned to the podium Saturday at Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Portland.
After placing fifth in the 160-pound division a year ago, the
Canby senior placed sixth at the 2020 Class 6A wrestling state championships.
Wrestling in the 182-pound weight class, Doman, the No. 7 seed, opened the tournament by pinning Grant senior Cormac O'Hagan early in the third period.
After losing to Forest Grove senior and No. 2 seed Gavin Rice by a 9-3 decision, Doman defeated Aloha senior and No. 5 seed Drew Fritz 3-2 in the consolation bracket.
Doman lost his final two matches, 5-1 to David Douglas senior and No. 3 Josiah Green, and then 9-7 to Centennial senior Bailey Sparks, to place sixth.
Canby senior Brent Patterson (195) also advanced to Saturday's competition.
After losing 8-0 to Reynolds sophomore and No. 2 seed Robert Plympton in the first round, Patterson worked his way through the consolation bracket.
Patterson defeated Lakeridge junior Spencer Lenius 5-2, Forest Grove senior Jeffrey Falla 3-1, and then Grants Pass junior and No. 6 seed David Ruiz 8-4 Friday.
Patterson's tournament then came to an end Saturday morning, one win shy of the placing rounds, with a 10-5 loss to Newberg junior and No. 7 seed Alec Love.
