Winner captures second
at Worthington, Minn.
Cougar grappler Nathan
Winner claimed the second
place slot in the National Junior
College Athletic Association
tournament held last weekend
in Worthington, Minnesota.
Winner fell 11-5 by deci­
sion to Ignatio Garcia of Colby,
Kansas, in the final round of
In the first round, Winner
took a 10-3 decision over Scott
Chipperfield of Northwest
Wyoming and a 7-2 win over
Mike Winter of Waukesha,
Wisconsin. In his semi-final
round Winnter pinned Perry
Graehling of Lakeland, Ohio in
5:26 followed by an 8-3 deci­
sion over Rick Dorn of Willmar.
Winner finished the
season with a 40-2 season
record, what Coach Norm
Berney said was “one of the
best season records here.” He
was also the first Clackamas
wrestler to compete in a cham­
pionship round since 1976.
“He put out a commen­
dable effort,” Berney said. “He
did a really good job going out
there with no previous ex­
perience and taking second
place. He put up a full effort
and worked hard this year.”
Winner’s teammate Mike
Bolf who also competed in na­
tional competition lost a 12-3
decision to Ken Bennett of
Forest Park, Missouri, in the
opening round of action.
“Bolf got surprised and
didn’t wrestle to his ability,”
Berney said. “It was because of
lack of experience, but he’ll go
back next year.”
Overall Berney felt his
men did “an adequate job.”
