Wrestling Over,
State Gets Two
Last weekend the Ashland
High wrestling team finished a
fair season by taking fifth at the
District meet.
This weekend, Jerry Sessions
and Larry Cullop, because of
their performances at the Dis
trict meet, earned berths in the
State Wrestling Meet. They will
wrestle at Corvallis today and
tomorrow. Coach Mobley feels
that both have an excellent
chance to capture honors in
their weight classes.
During the regular season, the
team won three and lost ten
matches. Jerry Sessions and
Larry Cullop had the best sea
sons, Sessions losing one by for
feit and Cullop losing one by de
cision and one by pin. Other
Bears with good records include
Tim Durbin, Tim Fisher, Alan
Engstrom, Gary Hooper, and
Tim Jones.
The AHS matmen beat the
Eagle Point wrestlers, 34-21, in
the first match of the season.
Henley and Crater fell to the
Grizzlies soon after, 25-21 and
