Eagle Point Middle School 7th and 8th grade wrestlers competed at the SOMSAC District Tournament, hosted by EPMS, and held at EPHS, on Feb. 19.
EPMS crowned three 8th grade District Champions: Loren Denn, Nate Leonardo and James McCoy.
Also placing in the 8th grade competition were Blaine Clooney, Caleb Strong and Dalton Wolf.
Placing for the 7th grade were Josh Long, Ryan Lorenz and Wade May.
The road to the State Tournament continued Mar. 5 at Scenic Middle School. The top four wrestlers in each bracket will punch their ticket to State, which will be held Saturday, Mar. 12 in Woodburn.
The qualifying event as well as the State Tournament are not school sanctioned and therefore not funded. You may well see the qualifying state contenders out in the community this week in a rush to fund raise. Weigh-ins are Friday night so an overnight stay is required, as well as entry fees.
Coaches Moose Leonardo, Larry Denn and Kevin Leonardo hope the community will support their effort and the hard work put in to represent Eagle Point this Saturday. For information, call Moose at 541-531-8539.
