PORTLAND -- The HRV wrestling team finished what it started Wednesday night, completing an undefeated season with an impressive, come-from-behind 31-24 win over David Douglas. After falling behind 16-3 early, the Eagles reeled off seven straight wins -- two by fall -- to subdue a strong Scots side.
Highlights: Trent Shelton wrestled up a weight class, but still managed to pin his 152-pound opponent in just 32 seconds. John Harvey came back from a 7-3 deficit in the third round to push his 140-pound match to OT, then earned a takedown for the win. 135-pound Rocky Level worked his tail off to give HRV a needed 6 points by earning a pin early in the third round. Other winners on the night were: Esteban Avila (119), David Posey (130) Felipe Magana (145), Jacobe Krizman (160) and Jason Macioroski (171).
