Bud Nollet came up just six points short in his quest to win a state title.

Nollet, a junior at Douglas High School, won his first three matches at the Class 4A state wrestling championships last weekend in Elko before losing to Baumgardner of Green Valley, 12-6, in the 103-pound title match.

All in all it was a good tournament for the Tigers, who had two medalists and finished 17th with 35.5 points. Also for the Tigers, Anton Toth placed sixth in the 140-pound classification.

Wooster, also the Northern Zone champion, won the team title with 149 points. Cimarron finished second with 135 and Fallon finished third with 112 points.

Also out of the 4A northern zone, Lowry placed eighth (70 points), McQueen placed 11th (49), Reno placed 13th (47.5) and Sparks placed 15th (37). Elko (18th, 30 points), Reed (20th, 27 points), Hug (24th, 25 points), Galena (34th, 11 points), and Carson (35th, eight points) also scored for the 4A northern zone.

Nollet pinned Chapman of Bonanza 53 seconds into his first-round match and pinned harvey of Carlin 2:40 into his quarterfinal match. He beat Osorio of Las Vegas, 16-1, in the semifinals.

Toth defeated Jennings of Durango, 6-4, in his first-round match. He pinned Ferrin of Elko 3:31 into his semifinal match, but lost by pin to Plummer of Sparks in the semifinals.

Toth then lost by pin to Matzen of Battle Mountain in the consolation bracket semifinals and to Ferrin in the fifth-place match.

Tony Alvarez went 1-2 in the 130-pound division. He lost his opening-round match, 13-6, beat Brooks of Carson, 3-2, in a first-round consolation match, and lost to Segura of Lowry, 6-0, in a second-round consolation match.

Matt Reiner won two matches in the 160-pound division. He beat Pursel of Yerington, 2-1, in a first-round consolation match and Serrano of Cheyenne, 10-7, after losing in the opening round. He finally lost to Robinson of Spring Creek, 10-4, in the consolation quarterfinals.

Garrett Anderson lost both of his matches in the 215-pound division.
