PORTLAND — The Warrenton girls wrestling team traveled to Portland last Friday to compete against 14 other schools in the Jefferson girls’ open tournament.
The Warriors finished third in the team standings behind Union (Camas, Wash.) and Century.
Libby Rehnert was Warrenton’s top finisher, as she placed second at 220 pounds.
Rehnert missed the 180 weight class and wrestled up, giving up almost 30 pounds to most of her opponents. She still went 3-1, losing in the finals.
Warrenton’s Brianna Quaschnick was 2-1 for third at 160, while Noel O’Brien was 2-2 at 180 to place fourth; and Bella Carr (2-2) also finished fourth in her bracket.
Sahanna Rodriguez competed in her first action of the season and finished 1-2, wrestling all three rounds of all three matches, plus one overtime period.
“We were super proud of our team and their ability to keep on learning from their mistakes and victories alike,” said Warrenton coach Corey Conant. “Our girls’ season ramps up over these next four weeks, and we are setting our sights on the state tournament in Springfield.”
