Shows how tough the Oregon Sectional is, Tom Holder and Tyler Baker will not be participating in the state tournament this year another respectable wrestler not participating Allemans Chuck Piertz. I have always said this was the toughest sectional in the state, but this just proves my point. These wrestlers enter the sectionals with 1 or 2 losses and then fail two qualify for the state tournament.
Other notes Decap falls to Walk in the finals 3-2, now lets see who has Connor on their side of the bracket. Also at 125 Hollowell wins over Harding 3-2, on an escape in the last 30 seconds. Tough weight.
130 Lahman over Loy in the finals, and Meyers over Holder for third and fourth.
This Sectional is unreal.

Everyone looses and at sectionals everyone wrestles there best. Also Plano was hard a few top ranked kids didn't make it out. Nasti and Rud both top 4 in the state and didn't even make it out.

Correct, he lost to a Montini frosh for 3rd place.

You do have to say that there was some outstanding wrestling at the Oregon sectional. First of all, Walk over Decap was amazing, not because of the result, but because of the whole match. Two great wrestlers. Lahman from AFC was on fire this weekend, and in my opinion, if you chose a outstanding upper and lower weight wrestler at sectionals, he would have to get it, so aggressive. 152, wow, who would have thought. Blanton, unreal, Bird, good, and how bout Kuebal, not expected to do anything, beats BOR Long in Prelims, Graybill in Quarters, loses 6-3 to Blanton, beats Piertiz 9-4, and wins in ot in 3rd place match, great weekend. 160, Troye, up to form and should be on the top of medal stand, Wenger, unbeatable for the next week and next year. 189 young doesn't even make it to a placing match, Noreberg and Winterhaulter final will be repeated in a week. Haffey is dominating and will win it all, and I do have to agree, while 275 overall was weeker than I thought, Stack at second and Richmond at 4th both made names for themselves. Good Luck to all next week.

This past week, I predicted that Vercelli, Doe, and Goebel would get out to Champaign and Nasti would be the odd man out. Lord knows I have been wrong plenty of times with predictions but I really believed this one would pan out and it did. Some Plano poster all but had me committed to the insane asylum for even suggesting Nasti would not get out. My rationale was simple. When a guy stalls all season against good competition, he will get bit in the behind when he least wants it to happen, like at sectionals. Against weaker competition, Nasti looks super because he goes on the offensive. But the minute he faces a stud, he plays defense and won't wrestle. To his credit, he took his loss like a man and didn't have a fit. I think the future is bright for this talented sophomore if he learns from this experience, improves on some technique, and continues to learn. There are few guys that are the physical specimen this boy is. Best of luck next season, Nick.
