After Tye Lommasson became a district and a regional wrestling champion for Camas, Austin Miller delivered a sensational encore performance Saturday at Heritage High School.
Lommasson grounded Skyline’s Joseph Dematteo 6-3 in the 126-pound 4A regional championship match. Dematteo was one of the top-ranked wrestlers in the state, but the Papermaker was able to keep the Spartan on the mat.
“I had butterflies, but I just had to fight through it,” Lommasson said. “This just feels awesome. It’s my first time going to state. I can’t wait to show everyone what I got.”
In the hours before the match, Tye found out his sister Taryn also qualified for state at the girls regional tournament in Battle Ground. That was all the motivation he needed.
“I’m ready, and I know that she’s ready,” he said. “We’ve been waiting for this for a long time.”
