Page 12 :he qe ra- December 19, 2012 00'SPORTS Sweet Home wins at Thurston wrestling tourney Sweet Home's wrestlers swept the Thurston duals Saturday, defeating Lowell 24-15; Thur- ston 42-28, Springfield 58-15 and McKay 75-0. Earlier in the week, the Huskies defeated Stayton 63-18, Molalla 72-6, Sutherland 57-15 and North Marion 52-18 in a five-way dual meet at home. "What we're getting to see now is the kids getting in better shape, gelling as a team," Coach Steve Thorpe said. He said he's particularly pleased with the "unselfishness" he's seen from team members willing to go up a weight or compete when un- der the weather. "We've had a couple of guys who were pretty sick who kept competing," Thorpe said, citing Trever Olson, Tyler Cowger and Bob Mal- loy as examples. "Anybody can compete when they feel good. Bob Malloy competed really hard when he was really sick." Other standouts were Cowger's bumping up a weight to defeat two-time state champi- on Lincoln Cesarez of Lowell 5-4, and a "big boost" out of newcomers Tyrell Miller, Aaron Blanchard and Brandon Keenon. Keenon (152) and Blanchard (106), both freshmen, helped the Husky junior varsity to wins over varsity teams from Central, Molalla and Riverside at the Stayton Tournament Satur- day. "It's tough to be young in this line-up with th schedule we put them in," Thorpe said. Assistant Coach Steve Hummer, who led the team at Stayton, said Keenon beat a three- time state qualifier from Riverside, as did sopho- more Ryan Adams (132). He said Sam Woosley did well at 145 pounds as well. "We're in a different spot this year than we were last year when we opened up," Thorpe said, referring to how Sweet Home was slowed by in- juries early last year. "But we're far from where we want to be. We have to get better if we want to attain some goals we want to reach." The Huskies will wrestle Friday and Satur- day, Dec. 21-22, in the Lebanon Tournament.
