PREP WRESTLING: North’s Roe, South’s Moala advance at state

SANDY — North Medford senior Atreaue Roe and South Medford sophomore Li Moala each advanced to the quarterfinals at the Class 6A wrestling state championships to pace the local contingent Saturday at Sandy High School.

Roe scored two pins in his only matches at 160 pounds on Day 1 of the two-day event, while Moala put in strong work at 220 with two decisions that went the distance.

The unseeded Roe opened his day with a pin of Mountainside’s Noah Morris in 4 minutes, 25 seconds, and then pinned Jaden Poulshock of David Douglas in 3:25 to reach today’s quarterfinals, where he will face top-seeded Price Pothier of Newberg.

Moala, who was the Southwest Conference champion at 220, was similarly unseeded but landed a 10-0 major decision victory over Tualatin’s Bodan Griffith in his first match before knocking off eighth-seeded Jonathan Moody of Newberg in a tight 3-1 match.

Moala will face top-seeded David Sherman of Sprague in this morning’s quarterfinals.

Still in contention for a podium spot today for North Medford are Joseph Borraggine (106) and Jace Garibay (145), who each suffered second-round losses but responded with a pair of wins apiece in the consolation bracket.

South Medford saw its other four state qualifiers fall by the wayside on Day 1, with Kristian Hernandez (106), Brayden Ostvik (126), Carson Terry (132) and Caleb Dalke (170) unable to get through consolation matches.

North Medford’s Calvin Chan (120), Conner McDougall (170), Robert Caster (220) and Dutch Nicholson (285) also picked up two losses Saturday and were eliminated.

Owen Hull (132), Tagge Fry (138), Dredan Myers (182) and Owen Townes (195) were each able to advance to the championship quarterfinals for Grants Pass, which stands 10th in the team scoring.
