Wrestlers Advance To State

Day two of the Oregon Sectional failed to see any wrestlers capture any titles but this area will be well represented at the state finals.  Leading the way were Rockridge’s Dallas Krueger at 126, Mercer County’s Stone Engle at 132 and Rockridge’s Collin Schmidt at 195 with second place finishes.  Nolan Throne of Rockridge, Steve Speaker II at 170 and Orion’s Logan Lee at 285 all finished 3rd.  Fourth place finishers included Noah Schnere of Orion at 126, Trent Scharpman of Orion at 145. Going as alternates are Mercer County’s Broctyn King at 106 and Camden Whitenack at 120 and Orion’s Mason Loete of Orion at 138.
