WRESTLING CHAMP
-Continued from PAGE ONE
This year Flynn was better
prepared for the onslaught
and fended off the attacks
repeatedly to move to the
second round tied at 0-0.
After winning the coin
toss and choosing the down
starting position, Jones
exploded out for an escape
and a 1-0 lead. Within sec-
onds Jones attacked and
scored a takedown on the
edge of the mat to suddenly
go up 3-0.
Remaining composed,
Flynn completely turned
the action around at the
restart, busting out from the
bottom for an escape then
immediately taking Jones
back to the mat with a blast-
double takedown. And just
like that the score was tied

at 3-3. Flynn then went to
work and scored two more
points for a near fall as time
ran out in the second period.
Flynn chose down
to start the third period
but didn’t stay there long.
He reversed Jones in just
10 seconds to go up 7-3
with 1:50 remaining in the
match. From there he was
able to ride out Jones for
the remainder of the time to
claim his state gold medal.

conference teams
state finalist for Heppner/
Ione in the last seven years
and becomes the fourth
Mustang state champion in
four years. He is the first
ever Ione High School ath-
lete to win a wrestling state
championship.
“Nobody has worked
harder for a state cham-
pionship than Cord,” said
head coach Mark Lemmon.
“His better conditioning
and maturity were obvious.
The difference between
last year’s championship
match against Jones and
this year’s were the hours
he spent in the weight room
getting more powerful to
stand toe-to-toe and slug it
out with one of the most ex- Mustangs Jacee Currin (right) and Morgan Correa both

of wellbeing.”

These workshops are struc-
tured for adults. Anyone
bringing children should
be prepared to help them
with the instruments. Thirty
instruments will be avail-
able or the public is invited
to bring personal ukuleles.
The Heppner workshop

Steve Einhorn’s name
was synonymous with his

of people about music,
instruments and songs and

ing in the region.
Power’s first recording
was produced by Bothy
Band musician and produc-
er Micheál O’Domhnaill
with the band Wildgeese in
1983 (Celtic Music of the
Great Northwest). In 1994,
Scottish fiddler Johnny
Cunningham co-produced
her Dancing in the Kitchen
album with Steve Einhorn,
a debut of original songs.
Power has recorded seven
albums with music and life
partner Steve Einhorn and
has been featured on several
Hearts O’Space compila-
- THREE
tions, Celtic Twilight and
Celtic Woman.
In recent years, the
duo has brought brought
thousands of new play-
ers into the music-making
fold with their Ukalaliens
method while touring the
countryside with a fleet of
ukes-to-share. Their newest
album, Portland Romance,
was produced with Jon
Neufeld (Black Prarie) and
Billy Oskay (Big Red).
Power and Einhorn reside
in Portland, OR.
A grant from the Mor-
row County Cultural Coali-
