Viks among top 10 at Sutherlin

After competing well in Sutherlin during a three-team meet last Thursday, the Vikings were back on the mats at Sutherlin again during Saturday’s 22-team regional invitational.

“We had a great day,” said Siuslaw coach Neil Wartnik, whose line-up was short its two top senior wrestlers, Ryan Connor and Hayden Miles, who were out with illness. “Our squad was amazing and really stepped up to the challenge.”

Among the day’s highlights was the championship won by sophomore Luke Carroll in the 145-lb. weight division over Harrisburg senior powerhouse Josh Hendrickson.

“Luke’s victory was definitely an upset,” Wartnik said of the title bout.

The Viks had two other medalists finish among the top three.

At 113 lbs., freshman Isaiah Burkhalter wrestled his way to tie for third place.

“Isaiah defeated some very good wrestlers throughout the day and showed great improvement,” Wartnik said.
