GRANTS PASS — Crater put itself in solid position by advancing 10 wrestlers into today's semifinals at the Class 6A District 4 Regional Championships at Grants Pass High.
As expected, top-ranked Roseburg built a commanding lead during the first day. The meet wraps up today with semifinals starting at 11 a.m. and championship finals slated for around 5:30 p.m. The Indians amassed 203.5 points, with Redmond (143) and Crater (126) the closest challengers.
The Comets advanced a pair of wrestlers into the semifinals at 160 pounds (Chase Mackey and Jacob Young) and 195 (Taylor Peterson and Lane Augustson). Morgan Walters (120), Nate Walters (132), Tyler Montague (138), Kody Gray (145), Chance Fahndrich (182) and Derek Turituri (220) also earned a spot in the semis.
North Medford is sixth with 57 points and advanced Tyler Crist (126), Reid Shipley (170) and Kaden Johnson (182) into the semifinals.
The Black Tornado suffered a setback when fourth-ranked heavyweight Marlon Campos tweaked a season-long injury in his first match and opted to injury default his quarterfinal match with fifth-ranked Wyatt Spears of Sheldon. Campos returned to score a 23-second pin in his only consolation bout to remain in contention in a weight class that boasts Nos. 1 and 2 in the state in Sheldon's Chet Spears and Roseburg's Marq Randall.
Tyler Thomas, at 120, was the lone South Medford wrestler to make the semifinals. The Panthers are eighth with 32.5 points in the nine-team tourney.
The top four wrestlers at each weight class will advance to the 6A state tournament in two weeks at Memorial Coliseum in Portland.
