A regional match-up between Oroville and Tonasket proved victorious for the Tigers, including pins from Peter Williams, Keegan McCormich and Rafael Padilla.
Oroville won the annual battle with Tonasket Dec. 13, besting their southern rivals 69-62.
Both teams played well in what Tonasket head coach Glenn Braman, a WSU graduate, called “The Apple Cup of the north.”
“Zac Guenther was the difference,” said Oroville head coach Carl Iverson. “He took the game over in the last 11 minutes. He scored 12 points in that time, but as importantly, he had five big assists in that time. That, along with Luke Rowton hitting three threes in the second half, ended up being the difference.”
OROVILLE – The Oroville Hornet Wrestling program opened its season by hosting a Jamboree in Coulton Auditorium on Nov. 29 and several of the home team wrestlers posted perfect performances.
