Lindquist leads Taft wrestlers to third-place showing at Tillamook

Senior Devon Lindquist, who placed second at Districts last season, won the 145-pound division while three other Taft High wrestlers placed second Saturday to lead the Tigers to a third-place finish among 13 teams at Scio.

Calling it “a huge day for Taft wrestling,” second-year coach Robb Ellis also watched seniors Cody Knott at 160 and Jacob Mayoral at 152 join sophomore Jose Flores at 113 with runner-up finishes in just their second tournament of the season.

The Tigers got third-place showings from Kaden White at 120 and first-year wrestler Jace Phippen at 285; fourth place from William Calderon at 138 and Victor Carrasco at 182; and fifth from David Jin at 170 and Eriq Aquino at 220.

The Tigers are scheduled to compete Friday in the Derek Blake Invitational at Yamhill-Carlton and Saturday at the Bill Haggerty Invitational at Nestucca.
