After this weekend, the Cougar
wrestlers knowjust what tough com­
petition is all about.
Clackamas hosted a dual meet on
Friday, battling with Simon Fraser
University, Southwestern Oregon
Community College and Lassen Col­
lege, the top-ranked team in the nation.
The Cougars did not fare as well as
Coach LlSya Martindale had hoped,
suffering defeat to Simon Fraser,
SWOCC and Lassen by scores of 29-
12, 28-15 and 31-18, respectively.
Despite the disappointing meet,
there were some outstanding indi­
vidual performances.
At 118 pounds, freshman Abel
Valdez went 3-0 in the meet, includ­
ing a victory by pinfall over Simon
Fraser's Jason Bennett. Valdez also
recorded a 4-2 victory over Judd
Wilcox of SWOCC and a 7-5 victory
over Vince Cessa of Lassen.
Valdez is currently ranked #1 in the
Southern Region.
In the heavyweight division, sopho­
more Leo Sandoval also went 3-0.
Sandoval recorded a 4-0 victory over
Ali Sandhu of Simon Fraser, a 7-1 vic­
tory over Cisco Cole of SWOCC, and
defeated John Bell of Lassen by
pinfall.
Despite the lack of success Coach
Martindale's team enjoyed, he feels his
squad will still be a contender at the end.
" We got strong performances from evr
eryone, but injuries and eligibility have
hurt us," said Martindale, who is iti his
second year as head coach at Clackamas.
One injury that Martindale referred to
was that of Tyler Bransford.
At 126 pounds, Bransford recorded a
victory in his first match but was unable
to compete after that due to an injury.
Bransford is currently the top ranked
wrestler in the region for his weight class.
Clackamas is ranked 18th in the na­
tion but Coach Martindale feels his
team will improve on that ranking as
the season progresses.
"I think we have an excellent chance
of winning the regional tournament,"
said Martindale.

Along with Valdez, Sandoval and
Bransford, Martindale also has been
pleased with the performances of
freshmen Dan Kinney and Chuck
Buffington.
"Dan Kinney and Chuck Buffington
have been a pleasant surprise for us
all year," said Martindale.
Coach Martindale looks to improve
when he gets his ineligible and injured
wrestlers back in top form.
"[When the season comes to an end],
I really believe we'll finish in the top
five [in the nation]," said Martindale.
The Cougars travel to Ellensburg,
WA to compete in the Central Wash­
ington University Open on Saturday.
After two weeks off, Clackamas will
compete in the Region 18 Champion­
ships in Couer d' Alene, ID on Feb. 14.

Coach Martindale and the Cougars
hope to improve on their sixth-place
finish last year.
