  • Eagle Point won dual wrestling matches against South Medford and Ashland at South Medford High Thursday, eclipsing 50 points in each.
    The Eagles defeated Ashland, 52-30, then topped the host Panthers, 55-21.
    Against Ashland, Eagle Point won five matches by fall and got forfeits in three others. The winners by fall were Mikey Johnson (105 pounds), Ivan Valle (113), Kaden Crandall (145), Hunter Hoeptner (160) Caleb Ash (170).
    Against South Medford, Hoeptner recorded another fall, this time in 5 minutes and 51 seconds over Brandon Brooks. The two had wrestled before and Brooks was pinned quickly.
    "He (Brooks) was down by one and (Hoeptner) got a fireman's carry to his back," said South Medford coach Dave Alonzo. "It was a close match. It could have gone the other way."
    The Eagles won seven other matches by fall against a South Medford team missing four wrestlers because of illness and another due to injury.
