Kara Smith swept to the top of her Bob Beisell Invitational girls' 160-pound field of five with a pair of pins against Class 6A talent Jan. 13 at Forest Grove High School.

The Lions senior received a quarterfinal bye, took down Centennial sophomore Simone Willingham in 4 minutes, 27 seconds in the semifinals and made quick work of Beaverton freshman Maria Reeder (:47) for the crown.

Smith's 24-point title and senior Quinnlyn Coddington's four-point run to the third consolation round at 180 were good for 12th as Class 6A Forest Grove (71) led Class 3A Warrenton (64) in the 17-team race.

"I thought the this weekend at Forest Grove went really well: That was probably the most competitive tournament that we will wrestle in this year, other than districts and state, and the kids wrestled as well as they have all season," St. Helens coach Greg Gadbois said.

In the boys' contests, Caleb Carter, also a senior, improved his record to 15-6 as he came away third in a Class 6A-laden heavyweight division: He beat Tigard sophomore Johnny Nomani (3:50) in the first round, survived Canby junior Kyler Boyd 11-10 in the quarterfinals and fell to Madison junior Rory Sullivan (2:56) in the semifinal before banishing Tigard junior Javier Velasquez (1:48) to fourth.

Tristin Buchanan (fourth, 113), Ryan Burri (fifth, 152), Matthew LaVoie (sixth, 132), Shawn Lee (sixth, 145) and Maverick Rask (sixth, 160) helped their side to eighth with 79 points as Class 6A Century (209) outgunned Tigard (199.5) for first.

The Lions are scheduled next to wrestle at Milwaukie at 7 p.m. Thursday and to enter the nine-team Tigard Invitational at 9:30 a.m. Saturday.
