Cav matmen are in form at LO
Llewellyn, Anderegg, Prow, Pfeifer and Jett win by fall
Clackamas High Schools youthful wrestling team wrestled tough in last weeks Three Rivers League dual-meet opener at Lake Oswego, winning eight of 12 matches contested on the mat en route to a 52-24 victory.
The Cavaliers won five matches by fall, two by forfeit and one by major decision.
Junior 132-pounder Gabe Llewellyn had the Cavaliers quickest fall, dispatching with Lake Oswegos Grant VanHoomissen in just 59 seconds.
Cavalier junior Kyle Anderegg (220) pinned Paul Carlson in overtime, after a low-scoring match in regulation.
Also earning falls were Clackamas senior Tristan Prow (145), over Justin Hanson; Cavalier senior Brad Pfeifer (182), over Marco Young; and Clackamas junior Zach Jett, over Joe Morse.
Clackamas junior Luis Zarate was impressive at 152, where he defeated Ethan Waggoner by 14-6 major decision.
Clackamas sophomore 106-pounder Brian Pham won a barnburner, eking out a 7-6 win over Hayden Hanson. Clackamas senior Matt Miller decisioned Brian Fay at 138.
Clackamas coach Jayson Wullbrandt commented on the meet: It was a good matchup for us. Our better kids wrestled their better kids, and we were able to battle through some tough positions to the needed wins.
106 was a great match. Hayden Hanson from LO is a tough little guy, and Brian Pham is a real raw wrestler for us. He is real strong, and was able to control positions that he felt comfortable scoring from.
113 was good as well. Will was up by one and got out of position, and Fox was able to get him on his back.
220 was also exciting. There was not a lot of scoring in the first three periods, and Kyle finally decided that he wanted to get to Carlsons legs, and he did. Tristan Prow also wrestled well at 145and was able to really lay the hammer down on top.
The Cavaliers return to league action tonight, hosting Lakeridge. They play host to Oregon City on Thursday, Jan. 23.
