Page 8 I Tt r - February 29, 2012 00)PORTS Wrestlers third [,ut mis00', top of podium By Scott Swanson Of The New Era For the Sweet Home wrestling team, the state 4A championship tournament was a fairly significant success as the Huskies finished third in a race of four teams loaded with experience and talent. For Colton Schilling, Tyler Cowger and Wade Paulus, though, their run through the championships ended on a sour note as all three lost in the finals. Coach Steve Thorpe, whose teams have won six 4A trophies (awarded to the top four teams) in a row - a division record - said the losses in the finals were disappointing "but there's no way I can be disappointed in them." "I was proud of those guys," he said of his team. "We were picked to be fourth." Cascade won the state title with 188 points, followed by Henley (185.5) and Sweet Home, 144. Crook County, which qualified 22 wrestlers for state, nearly double the Huskies' 13, was fourth, with 141. North Marion was fifth (70.5) and Stayton, led by first-year coach Kyle Temple, a Sweet Home alumnus, was seventh (66). In addition to the seco.nd-place finishes by Paulus in the 195-pound division, Cowger at 138 and Schilling at 120, the Huskies got CAR & TRUCK SALE 2007 HONDA CRV EXL STUNNING 4x4, leather, navigation &.much more.

It was a particularly disap- pointing evening for Schilling, who had been aiming for four straight state titles after winning championships as a freshman and sophomore. It became apparent immediately that Bresser, whose younger brother Zach had just won the ll2-pound championship by overwhelming his opponent with a frenetic attack, was going to em- ploy the same strategy. The two had split their two earlier bouts this season, Bresser came out bobbing and weaving, slapping and grabbing, which was effective in overwhelming Schil- ling long enough for Bresser to score a takedown. Schilling imme- diately scored as Bresser let him go for an escape, then spent the next minute trying to grab Bresser, and eventually caught him and lifted him off the ground, then fell on top of him at the edge of the mat with 30 seconds left in the first period. Referee Jim Phillips penalized him two points for an illegal throw, as Bresser writhed at the edge of the mat and Thorpe protested, to no avail and, after Bresser returned to the mat he was up 4-1. That was enough as he went on to win 7-4, af- ter exchanging reversals and a late takedown by Schilling, as Bresser went into a defensive mode which drew him a penalty point for stall- ing late in the match. "He's a lot faster than me," Schilling said. "Our styles are a lot different and he had the right plan. He got ahead in the first period and See Huskies, page 9 Tyler Cowger gets the win over Brendan Harkey of Crook County in the 138-pound semifinals.
