EASIDE — The high school wrestling powers
of Northwest Oregon met Friday and Saturday at
Seaside in the annual Pacific Rim Armed Forces
Competing in their last Pac Rim as a member of the
Cowapa League, Scappoose powered its way to the team
championship ahead of wrestling powers Tigard and
Meanwhile, wrestlers from the Lower Columbia
region had their share of success individually — just not
as much in the team standings.
After a second-place showing in last year’s meet,
Ilwaco slipped to sixth, while Knappa, Seaside, War-
renton and Astoria all finished in the bottom six of the
team standings. Fifteen schools took part in the annual
Knappa had one championship qualifier, as junior
Luke Goozee reached the finals at 132 pounds.
Goozee scored three straight pins, including a 43-sec-
ond fall over Matthew LaVoie of St. Helens in the
In the title match, Goozee faced Emilio Jimenez of
Class 6A Tigard. Jimenez built an early lead, only to have
Goozee battle back and tie the match, 10-10 in the final
A late escape gave Jimenez the one point he needed for
an 11-10 victory.
Ilwaco’s Ghannon Whelden took second at 126 pounds,
and teammate Marcello Lazaro was second at 285.
Keegan Kemmer of Ilwaco lost a first-round match to
Knappa’s Robert Pina, but wrestled back to place third at
120 pounds. Teammate Royce Murry was third at 152.
The highlight for the home team was a third-place fin-
ish for Seaside’s Luke Nelson, who went 5-1 and scored
an 8-1 decision over Yamhill-Carlton’s Zackary Rodri-
guez in the consolation final.
After a first-round bye, Astoria’s Trey Hagemen won a
match to reach the semifinals at 160, where he lost a 12-4
decision to Estacada’s Justin Drury. Hageman bounced
back and eventually placed fourth.
Astoria held Corbett to just two
points in the first half, as the Lady
Fishermen cruised to an easy 53-21
win over the Cardinals in girls basket-
ball action Friday at the Brick House.
Brooklynn Hankwitz tossed in
a game-high 17 points for Astoria,
which led 31-2 at the break. Gracie
Cummings added 10 points.
The Lady Fishermen return to
action Tuesday at Estacada.
Newport scores win
NEWPORT — Newport’s Dakota
Rundell poured in 22 points — which
nearly matched the team total for Sea-
side — in the Cubs’ 44-23 win over
the Gulls in a nonleague girls basket-
ball game Friday.
The points were hard to come by
for the short-handed Gulls, who are
still playing without Emy Kiser, and
were without Bryre Babbitt Friday.
Newport led 23-7 at halftime,
before Annaka Garhofer knocked
down a 3-pointer and Jetta Ideue con-
verted a three-point play to bring the
Gulls within 10 points early in the
But Rundell got hot as the game
progressed, as the sophomore made
three 3-pointers in the final quarter to
help the Cubs pull away for their sec-
KNAPPA — The Knappa Log-
gers have won their last three
games by a combined 98 points,
with the latest victory an easy
67-37 win over Faith Bible in a
Northwest League boys basketball
Knappa led 44-9 at half-
time, as the No. 4-ranked Log-
gers improved to 4-0 in league, 9-2
Dale Takalo scored 20 points
and Colton Weirup added 11 for
the Knappa starters, who only
played two-and-a-half quarters.
Knappa will look to add another
30-point win tonight at City Chris-
tian, before they travel to No.

Two more wins
PORTLAND — After losing three
of four games in mid-December, the
Warrenton Lady Warriors have now
won six in a row, all by 20 points or
more, as they close in on first place in
the Lewis & Clark League girls bas-
Warrenton added two wins in two
days over the weekend, with a 61-30
victory Friday at home over Oregon
Episcopal, followed by a 62-42 win
Saturday at Riverdale, which lost its
seventh in a row.
“We’re just playing great team bas-
ketball,” said Warrenton coach Robert
Hoepfl. “Riverdale has a couple good
players, and we held their top scorer to
just 13 points. It’s another good win.
That’s six in a row by 20-plus points.”
Warrenton junior Fernanda Alva-
rez led all scorers with 18 points.
“She was a beast in the second
half,” Hoepfl said. “She had three
fouls in four minutes in the first half,
but just came out in the second half
and was unstoppable. She was doing
everything a coach wants.”
Morgan Blodgett and Tyla Lit-
tle tacked on 13 points apiece for the
Warriors, with Blodgett also grabbing
In Friday’s win over OES, Alva-
rez had 16 points and Little had 13, as
Warrenton led 18-3 after one quarter.
NEWPORT — Vengeance was
Seaside’s Friday night at Newport,
where the Gulls reminded the Cubs
that they are still the defending
state champion in Class 4A boys
After a 70-59 loss to Newport
Dec. 16 at Seaside, the Gulls won
the rematch Friday on the Cubs’
home floor, 64-63.
In a potential state championship
matchup, Seaside led by as much as
10 points in the fourth, and the No.
5-ranked Gulls made just enough
free throws down the stretch to hold
off the No. 2-ranked Cubs.
Chase Januik scored 20 points
to lead Seaside, and the Gulls had
three other players in double figures
to counter 35 points by Newport’s
Newport had three 3-pointers in
the first quarter, but the Gulls still
led after one period, 15-13.
Back-to-back scores by Januik
helped Seaside open up a 23-15
lead early in the second quarter; and
baskets by Ryan Hague and Payton
Westerholm kept the Gulls in front
throughout the first half, which
ended with Seaside ahead, 36-31.
The Gulls maintained their lead
in the third period, as Seaside’s lead
Blaser kept the Cubs close,
but Westerholm made 4-of-6 free
throws in the final 1:02 to clinch
to OES, Riverdale
PORTLAND — Warrenton
continues to close the gap, but the
Warriors are still looking for their
first league win, following two
losses over the weekend.
No. 11-ranked Oregon Epis-
copal posted a 43-31 win over the
Warriors at Warrenton on Friday,
and Riverdale held off the War-
