Vik grapplers gain momentum

Posted: Tuesday, Jan 15th, 2013

Siuslaw senior heavyweight Ryan Connor faces off against Coquille’s Zach Latimer last Friday. Connor went on to win the match by pin, as well as win the 285-lb. bracket at the Shamrock Invitational on Saturday.

The Viking wrestlers saw a lot of action this past weekend, beginning with a three-team non-league invitational dual meet against Newport and Coquille on Friday.

Ryan Connor, Turner Wyckoff and Hayden Miles each had wins Friday night, with the Viks returning to the mats the next morning at Waldport High School for the annual multi-team Shamrock Invitational.

“We are continuing to see growth, especially from our less experienced members,” said Siuslaw coach Neil Wartnik.

The Vikings placed third overall at the invitational, with eight placers among the top four in their divisions, and a tournament championship from Connor at 285-lbs.
