We kind of snow balled them tonight.” The Indians had three forfeits to start the match then five pins, a decisions and finished with five more pins.

Roseburg lost to first ranked Newberg in the final last year. “The Oregon Classic is considered the dual meet championships,” Lander said. “We will have four dual meet matches on Friday starting at 3:30 and will four three more dual meet matches on Saturday. We can take our varsity roster plus six other kids. It’s good experience wrestling kids we don’t normally see. We look forward to wrestling Newberg again if we can win our first six matches and they can too.” Photos courtesy of Kim Root. Photos of Colin Rietmann, Kahleb Diaz and Cameron Cross.
