MILTON-FREEWATER — Mac-Hi rolled up 10 victories on the way to a 54-15 Greater Oregon League wrestling victory over La Grande here on Tuesday.
"We thought this would be a really close dual," Pioneers coach Beau Chester said. "But the kids came out and they wrestled really well. We had a lot of close individual matches. Joey Paez won a close 3-2 match. Wyatt Law had a good win over Matt Nicholson at 9-6. And Angel Placios had a good match and won 5-3.
"It was one of those nights when things turned our way, which was nice to see," Chester said.
The Pioneer varsity returns to the mats at Baker next Thursday with a 5 p.m. start.
