Siuslaw to send Connor, Miles to state mats

Posted: Tuesday, Feb 19th, 2013

Seniors Ryan Connor (left), who won the 285-lb. title, and Hayden Miles, who placed third at 152 lbs., will advance to the 4A state wrestling meet this weekend at Memorial Coliseum in Portland.

The Vikings sent 10 wrestlers to the regional meet this past weekend, with the best of the Far West locking horns with the Skyline League’s top placers. At the end of the day, only two Vikings — Ryan Connor and Hayden Miles — remained standing, earning themselves a trip to the 4A state tournament this weekend in Portland.

“We had some outstanding performances,” said Siuslaw coach Neil Wartnik. “The Skyline is truly tough. So, for our younger wrestlers, it was an eye-opening experience.”

The day’s top performance for the Vikings came from senior Ryan Connor, who virtually pinned his way through the season before claiming the Southwest Oregon Regional title at 285 lbs. with relative ease.

“Ryan was simply stellar,” Wartnik said of Connor’s performance.

At 152 lbs., fellow senior Hayden Miles had a tougher time in one of the tournament’s most competitive brackets, advancing to the third-place match for his division after a loss earlier in the tournament.
