Vinny Waldhauser won the 160-pound weight class at the Tim Brown Memorial and Keaton Subjeck placed third at 145 pounds, as the duo had a great week for the team. After picking up their only wins in a dual match against rival Ponderosa on Wednesday, Waldhauser and Subjeck kept right on winning at the Tim Brown Memorial Tournament on Friday and Saturday in Sacramento. Waldhauser, ranked second in the state at 160 pounds, narrowly defeated McNair's Jim Wilson in the finals, 1-0, to win his weight class. McNair is ranked third in the state at 160 right behind Waldhauser. For his efforts, The California Wrestler website named Waldhauser the Wrestler of the Week. Subjeck's only loss of the tournament came against David Ferry from Oakdale, who last year won a state championship. Preston Dean won three of his first four matches before injury defaulting out of the tournament. Cameron Miller (130) and Zach Claiborne (171) both won three matches, while Taylor Ellerman won two at 135 pounds. In the 62-10 loss to Ponderosa on Wednesday, Waldhauser picked up a pin at 171 pounds, while Subjeck earned a 17-6 victory at 145. Those were the only two matches Oak Ridge won against the always-tough Bruins. At the middle school level, the Rolling Hills wrestling team had nine, top-three finishes at two different tournaments over the weekend. Michael Reamer, Ryan Campbell and Ari Escobedo won their weight classes, while Trent Smith, Billy Daly, Ryan Santos, Burke Viator and Dominic Smith placed second and Finn Knutila ended up third.
