The varsity Cowboys ran away with first place at the North Bend Coast Classic, while the JV squad fared well in Culver.

PMG PHOTO: LON AUSTIN - While the Cowboy varsity team was winning four individual championships at the North Bend Coast Classic, JV wrestler Mason Lacey won the 113-pound bracket in Culver.It was a busy but successful week for the Crook County High School wrestling team.

Thursday the Cowboys rolled past Thurston 50-28 in a dual meet. Then Friday and Saturday, the Cowboys cruised to an easy win in the North Bend Coast Classic, while the Crook County JV squad finished fifth in the varsity Culver Invitational Tournament.

"I think it went really well," Crook County head coach Jake Gonzales said of the week. "At the Coast, we had 10 placers, four champs, and went for four for four in the finals along with a team trophy. There are some matches you want to get back, but the team fought. They competed. Everyone is getting matches and everyone is improving. We just have to continue to get better."

Thursday the Cowboys dominated the lower weights as they built a 34-0 lead before Thurston won a match. Alberto Flores, 106, Landon Lavey, 113, Mitch Warren, 120, Tucker Bonner, 126 and Wyatt Wood, 138, all picked up falls, while Cash Wells picked up a major decision. Thurston won their first match at 145 pounds as Kolton Malone earned a major decision over Garrett Cobb. Although Thurston won several matches in the upper weight classes, the dual was already decided by then.

Kyree Willis, 160, and Ray Solis, 195, also picked up falls for Crook County, while Brayden Duke, 182, won by major decision.

The win was especially impressive as Thurston edged Crook County for second place at last year's culminating week unofficial state tournament.

The North Bend Coast Classic was close until midway through the day Saturday.

Grants Pass held a tiny lead heading into Saturday with 56 points. Crook County had 55.5 points, and Redmond was third with 54 points. However, by the time semifinal matches were over Saturday morning, Crook County held a solid lead, while Roseburg had moved up to second place. That's the way things stayed as the Cowboys pulled away, amassing 254.5 points to easily outpace the second-place Indians with 183.5 points.

Rounding out the top 10 in the 34-team tournament were Crater, 149.5, Grants Pass, 148, Redmond, 123.5, McNary, 111, Eagle Point, 98, Century, 79, Henley, 77 and Stayton, 77.

Individual champions for Crook County were Landon Lavey, 113, Mitch Warren, 120, Tucker Bonner, 126, and Brayden Duke, 182.

Flores, 106 and Wells, 132, finished third for the Cowboys, while Ray Solis, 195, finished fourth. Other Cowboy placers at the Coast Classic included Wood, 138, Gavin Sandoval, 152, and Jubal Brumble, 220, who all finished fifth. Willis, 160, Gage Hanson, 170 and Mauricio Ambriz, 285, also won at least one match for the Cowboys during the tournament.

The Cowboy JV team also had a strong tourney at Culver. La Pine won the event with 241.5 points, while Culver was a close second with 233 points. Madras finished third with 222 points, while Illinois Valley was fourth with 168. The Cowboys were a close fifth with 162 points, while Mazama, 151, Rainer 111.5, Glide, 90.5, Heppner, 84, and Grant Union, 83, rounded out the top 10 at the 23-team tournament.

Mason Lacey at 113 pounds was the lone Cowboy champion, while his brother, Robert Lacey, finished second at 132 pounds.

Other Cowboy placers included Camron Vail, third at 120 pounds, Duke Wentzel, fourth at 106 pounds, Preston Duke, fifth at 195 pounds, Mason McCallister, sixth at 126 pounds, Justin Mitchell, sixth at 132 pounds, and Jeffrey Schuler, sixth at 170 pounds.

Also winning matches for the Cowboys at the tournament were Cooper Nelson, 120, Aiden Bonner, 126, MaKenna Duran, 132, Caleb Buffington, 152, David Mahnke, 160, and Brennan Allen, 160.

The Cowboy varsity has possibly their toughest tournament of the year this weekend when they travel to Nevada for the Reno Tournament of Champions, which is billed as the toughest tournament in the country. Meanwhile, the JV team will once again compete in a varsity tournament as they will attend the Adrian Irwin Invitational, which will be held at Caldera High School in Bend.

"We are looking really good on top," Gonzales said. "So, I think that's a strength for us right now. And we have done a good job of fighting and competing, staying in the matches that maybe we are outgunned in and not supposed to win. We have to just continue to get better."
