ALSEA – For a number of years, 1A schools from around the state have gathered to hold a small school wrestling championship. As the OSAA combines 1A and 2A for the formal state tournament, this is a chance to small schools/small teams to gather and hit the mats.

With the tournament rotating venues for each year, the 1A State Championships were held on Saturday, Jan. 21 in Alsea.

As the tournament came to a close, the Elgin Huskies returned home with the team title after putting up 131.5 points. Joseph, with 84.5 points, was fourth and Crane took a top five showing at fifth with 83.5 points.

Union finished seventh followed by Pine Eagle in eighth and Imbler in ninth. Adrian was just outside the top 10 in 11th and in their first year of wrestling, Four Rivers placed 13th. The combined team of Enterprise/Wallowa finished in the 14th position.
