Wrestling: Douglas takes 4th at Spring Creek

After winning last week's Carson Valley Lions' Club Invitational, Douglas wrestling coach Lamont McCann remarked that on any given day, one of four or five teams is capable of stepping up and winning the regional title.

After Saturday's Spring Creek Kiwanis Invitational, it appears that he is correct.

Douglas, currently ranked No. 1 in the Sierra Nevada Sports Media Poll, finished well ahead of Fallon at the Carson Valley Tournament last week.

But, Fallon came back at Spring Creek to be the top scoring Nevada team, taking second place overall..

Douglas, on the other hand, finished fourth coming in behind Minico of Idaho and Northern 3A power Spring Creek.

The Tigers produced two tournament champions and four runner-ups along the way.

Sean Molina won the 189-pound weight class for his second individual tournament win of the year. He pinned Brady Cooper of Minico in 3:10.

Jake Williams won the 160-pound class, pinning Cse Hruza of Minico in 3:54.

Garrett Hekhuis took second in the 112-pound bracket, losing to Nate Crane of Minico in the championship and Ryan Olsen took second in the 119-pound class, losing to Nick Wooden of Spring Creek.

Ryan Pruitt was the runner-up in the 152-pound class, losing to Spring Creek's Trinity Perkins in the championship and 171-pounder Tony Ferris also finished second, losing to Kamas Wing of Spring Creek.

Wesley Peterson was Douglas' only other top-three finisher, taking third in the 103-pound class with a win over Fallon's Colin Markley in the consolation finals.
