Next up for the Huskies, ranked fourth in the state 4A divi- sion behind Henley, Crook County and Cascade, is the regional tour- nament, which will be hosted by Sweet Home this Friday and Satur- day, Feb. 17-18. This is where it counts, Thorpe said. "I told the kids, in a season oVerview, that they&apos;ve won all these matches, but who cares. We don't get any points for what we've done so far. The next two tournaments are the ones that matter'now." The Huskies have done well in nearly all the weight divisions against regional competition, their only dual meet loss to a District 4 team coming against Cascade early in the season. Since then, they've beaten the Cougars three times, though Cascade is still ranked high- er by state wrestling pollsters. Thorpe said he believes District 4, which includes Central, Cottage Grove, Elmira, Junction City, New- port, Philomath, Stayton, Sweet Home and Taft, is the toughest of the four 4A districts in Oregon. "Our region is head and shoul- ders above the other regions in the state," he said. "When you have Cascade and Sweet Home, the No. 3 and 4-ranked teams, in the same region, we'll beat each other up. Then you have to remember Philo- math. They're seventh in the state. It's tough, tough. Everything is tough." In addition to the team smength in the district, Elmira's Kyle Smith is undefeated as the No. 1 heavy- weight in the 4A division and Mitchell Kuenzi of Stayton is No. 2 at 195 - behind Sweet Home's Wade Paulus. Josh Stanley of Cot- tage Grove is No. 1 at 160 pounds, ahead of Braden Calder of Philo- math, who is fourth. Cascade has seven wrestlers ranked in the top five in 4A: Tra- COMICS vis Bledsoe (fourth) and Spencer Crawford (fifth) at 126, Ryan Doz- ler (third) at 138, Tyler Howe (first) at 170, Cody Crawford (first) and Zach Soto (fifth) at 182 and Dustin Johnson (second) at 220, with a few more ranked slightly lower. Sweet Home, on the other hand, goes into the tournament with six ranked in the state's top five: Justin Nicholson fourth at 106, Colton Schilling (first) and Scottie Stockman (fifth) at 120, Ty- ler Cowger (second) at 138, Paulus (first) at 195, and Zach Gill (third) at 285. The likely line-up for the Hus- kies going into the regional will be: 106 pounds - Tyler Schilling and Justin Nicholson; 113 - Nene Mauer and Anthony Hardy; 120 - Colton Schilling and Scottie Stockman; 126 - Dylan Elder and Ty Kirkland; 132 -Ty Harvey and Ryan Adams; 138 - Tyler Cowger and JT Weld; 145 - Trever Olson and Bobby Malloy; 152 - Raul Hernandez and Inn Search; 160 - Nate Melcher and Nick Hall; 170 - Alex Armstrong and Ben Terry; 182 - Chance Jucutan and Quin Wise; 195 - Wade Paulus and Da- vid Skeen; 220 - Troy Hazelton; and 285 - Zach Gill. "We've come a long way," Thorpe said. "We've come togeth- er. It hasn't been anything short of hard work. We have a team full of guys who absolutely reliable, re- sourceful and unselfish. That's what makes for our success at the end. "But, like I said before, we haven't done anything yet, but what we're about to do is what we've worked towards." Tournament sessions start at 11 a.m. both Friday and Saturday. Saturday's wrestling will be di- vided into an early session, which will end after the fifth-sixth conso- lation matches, and a later session that will include third/fourth-place and .championship matches and the awards ceremony, which will start later in the afternoon or early eve- ning. Admission for each session is $6 for adults and $4 for students K through 12. Only OSAA Gold Cards will be accepted.
