Jeff Stutznegger, Astoria’s senior heavyweight, posted a 7-2 decision over Tillamook’s Raul Ledesma, then scored a first round fall against Seaside’s Will Kautz to finish 2-0.
Astoria’s final wrestler, Dalton Somers, lost by fall to Abraham Rosas of Tillamook. He also wrestled an exhibition match against Seaside’s Donald LaTourette, who won by fall in the second round.
