PREP ROUNDUP: Crater seniors lead rout of South

CENTRAL POINT — Senior night is always a special one for the Crater Comets wrestling program but Thursday night’s nonleague dual against South Medford proved extra special — and extra dominant.

Crater saw five seniors score pins in their final home match and 10 wrestlers win by fall overall in a 76-3 rout of the Panthers.

“I think we’re starting to hit on some cylinders pretty good here,” said Crater head coach Greg Haga. “We had a good week of practices after starting up two practices in a day and the benefits, I think, we’ll see even more in about a week and a half or so.”

Seniors Ryan McCarty, Jimmie Northrup, Matthew Bolanos, Brayden Gray and Gabriel Williams paved the way Thursday night, with it especially being a fun night for Haga since the fathers of Bolanos and Gray each wrestled for the coach.

Haga noted with a laugh that he had McCarty’s father in his class years ago at Crater “and he should’ve wrestled for me.”

Earlier in the day, Bolanos signed with Southern Oregon University’s wrestling program. The 152-pounder faced one of South’s more accomplished wrestlers this season in Isaack Valdez and allowed a quick takedown before scoring a pin in 1 minute, 31 seconds.

“That was probably jitters,” said Haga of the early deficit. “For these seniors, knowing it’s their last night under the lights some of them can get emotional. Some of them have been here hanging around the mat since they were 4 years old.”

McCarty won by fall at 126 over Brayden Ostvik in 2:58, and Northrup recorded a pin in 1:55 in his first match under the varsity lights after moving to the school from the Midwest last year.

Gray pinned Carson Alvarez in 58 seconds at 160, and Williams scored a pin over Li Moala in 1:13 at 220.

South Medford’s lone decision came from Carson Terry at 132. Terry scored an 8-2 decision over Moses Kyne.

Crater’s lone victory that did not come by fall or forfeit was secured at 106 by Sienna Caruso, who edged Kristian Hernandez 8-5.
