Twelve out of 14 Washougal wrestlers snagged medals from the Columbia Gorge Invitational Saturday, at Stevenson High School. And the team brought home the trophy.
The Panthers racked up 161.5 points to win the seven-team meet. Castle Rock was second with 156 points.
WHS junior Jacob Brown became a Gorge champion for the second year in a row. Sophomores A.J. Christianson and Bailey Duncan, and freshman Tanner Howington, finished in second place.
“It was awesome seeing two sophomores and a freshman earn trips to the finals,” said head coach John Carver.
Ruben Aguilar, Tanner Baldwin, Andrew Bedjan, Dylen Cherry, Taylor Leifsen and Ulrich Reyes took third place. Zach Oster and John Sutherland secured fourth place.
