The Cowboys were one of the top teams in the 72-team field at the Rollie Lane Invitational in Nampa, Idaho, last weekend.

The Cowboys blasted Redmond 57-23 at home on Wednesday in an Intermountain Conference dual meet, then fought to a fourth-place finish at the 72-team Rollie Lane Invitational in Nampa, Idaho, over the weekend.

The dual meet victory over Redmond avenged a loss to the Panthers a year ago.

"I think it's amazing because they ground on us last year," Crook County senior Mitch Warren said of the dual meet win. "I knew that wasn't going to happen this year, but I was shocked. I didn't think we were going to show up as good as we did. I'm just proud of our whole team."

With matches starting at 113 pounds on Wednesday, the Cowboys took control from the start.

Landon Lavey opened things up with a pin for the Cowboys. Warren then fell behind early at 120 pounds, but came back to pin Logan Hill to give the Cowboys a 12-0 lead.

"Gonzo (Crook County head coach Jake Gonzales) always says stay in the fight, so I stayed in the fight," Warren said. "I've just been dreaming of wrestling this kid and making a statement. I knew I had to beat him not just for me, but for the team and I think I did that and set the tone for the match."

Tucker Bonner, 126 pounds, and Cash Wells, 132, also picked up pins as the Cowboys rolled out to a 24-0 lead.

Then, in the closest match of the night, Wyatt Wood took an early lead, then held on to edge Ansen Widing 10-6 at 138 pounds to put the Cowboys ahead 27-0.

Redmond finally got on the board when Junior Downing earned a technical fall over Ross McKinney at 145 pounds. However, Gonzales was even happy with that result.

"Ross fought and only gave up a tech," Gonzales said. "There were a couple of matches I would like to get back, but we fought. Just super proud of the effort, super proud of the team. It feels good to beat Redmond."

The Cowboys' Gavin Sandoval then pinned Joseph Downing at 152 pounds to stretch the Crook County lead to 33-5.

Other Cowboys to win, all by fall, included Gage Hanson, 170 pounds, Brayden Duke, 182 pounds, Ray Solis, 195 pounds, and Jubal Brumble, 220 pounds.

The Cowboys continued to pick up pins at Rollie Lane, finishing with 29 pins, one more than was earned by tournament champion Flathead.

Other Crook County placers included Bonner, fourth at 126 pounds; MaKenna Duran, fourth at 132 pounds in the women's competition; and Lavey, fifth at 113 pounds.

However, it was a team effort that propelled the Cowboys to the fourth-place finish.

"It was a tremendous all around team effort," Gonzales said. "It was the toughest Rollie Lane tournament we have been to, so I'm pleased overall. We had a lot of kids win matches."

The Cowboys took their entire team to the tournament, and had 22 wrestlers win at least one match.

At 106 pounds, Alberto Flores went 1-2 and Duke Wentzel went 2-2. At 113 pounds, Mason Lacey went 3-2 while Landon Lavey finished with a 6-2 record. At 120 pounds, Justin England went 2-2, Mitch Warren 2-2 and Cameron Vail 1-2. At 126 pounds, Tucker Bonner went 6-2 while Robert Lacey finished with a 3-2 record.

At 132 pounds, MaKenna Duran and Cash Wells both went 4-2. At 138 pounds, Wyatt Wood finished 3-2. At 145 pounds Gavin Sandoval went 5-2, Collier Buffington 1-2, and Ross McKinney 2-2. At 170 pounds, Gage Hanson finished with a 1-2 record while Brayden Duke went 5-2. At 195 pounds, Ray Soliz went 5-1 while Preston Duke went 1-2. At 220 pounds, Jubal Brumble finished with a 1-2 record as did heavyweights Coy Mathiasen and Mauricio Ambriz.

Flathead finished with 231 points to win the tournament while Meridian finished second with 206 points. Couer D Alene finished third with 152 points, followed by Crook County, 148, Post Falls, 129, Minico, 127.5, Columbia, 118, Caldwell, 116, New Plymouth, 116, and Wasatch, 111.

The Cowboys are back in action on Thursday when they host the Mike Shinkle Memorial Duals. Teams expected to wrestle this year include West Linn, Burns, and Molalla. The Cowboys then head to Redmond, where they will compete on Friday and Saturday at the Oregon Wrestling Classic, which will be held at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds.

"We are getting better, and that's all I care about is getting better every day," Gonzales said. "I think that we are seeing it. Go Cowboys."

Crescent Valley are the favorites to win the Class 5A division in the Oregon Wrestling Classic, but the Cowboys should be in the mix for second — and hope to do even better than that.

"We aren't finished yet," Warren said. "We are going for Crescent Valley."
