A short-squad had good results yesterday in Sutherlin for the Siuslaw Vikings. Coach Neil Wartnik said a combination of circumstances led to only five wrestlers making the trip. Three of those came away with double-victories in dual meets against both Sutherlin and South Umpqua.
Isaiah Burkhalter won twice at 126 pounds; Tyler Coolidge and Markel Bliss did the same at 138 and 220. Jose de la Mora had a single victory at 113 pounds and Dylan Jennings won at 285.
Viking wrestlers will be back on the mats tomorrow in Sutherlin for the Bulldog Invitational.
