Sandy wrestlers drop dual to Reynolds
Sandy's wrestling team dropped a 46-36 decision to unbeaten Reynolds last Thursday.
The Pioneers found themselves within four points in the team tally after Mikey Platz scored a first-period pin at 182 pounds, but Reynolds responded with back-to-back quick falls of its own to wrap up the team dual.
Sandy's Isaiah Shideler had the quickest pin of the night in 42 seconds at 145 pounds, while teammates Caleb Hawkes (132) and Michael Castagnola (160) also flattened their opponents.
The teams split forfeits at four weight classes.
Sandy's Ford McKinnis won the heavyweight title at the Don York Invitational, needing barely two minutes to dispatch his first three opponents by fall. He scored a 4-2 decision in the semifinals and pinned Gladstone's Josh Heywood in 47 seconds in the title bout.
Teammate Isaiah Shideler reached the 138-pound championship bout before falling 12-7 to Hood River's Chad Muenzer. Shideler picked up three first-period pins earlier in his bracket, along with a 20-4 technical fall and a forfeit in the semifinals.
