Four wrestlers competed at the IWCOA State Finals with Briggs Sellers walking away with a sixth place finish.
Three more competed in the IKWF State Finals with Jack Benesh taking eighth and Cannon Ziller a runner-up.
Nine more competed in their first IESA State Finals with Levi Benton finishing in sixth and Oregon’s first-ever IESA State Champion Nelson Benesh.

“We have a great group of coaches, parents, families and friends that make it such a successful program,” the Facebook post said. “These accomplishments don’t happen without all of the support and these young athletes are becoming awesome wrestlers but even better members of society! It’s great to be an Oregon Hawk!”
