Siuslaw sophomore Ryan Jennings

Siuslaw sophomore Ryan Jennings was the last Viking standing Saturday in the Oregon School Activities Association 4A wrestling championships in Portland.

Madras senior Victor Torres ended Jennings' hopes of a high finish with a pin in 1 minute, 32 seconds in their 152-pound division consolation bout.

Jennings finished 2-2 in his first trip to the state tournament.

Friday, Vikings teammates Elijah LaCosse, Riley Jennings and Matthew Horrillo were each eliminated.

LaCosse, a sophomore competing at state for the second time, lost both his matches at 126 pounds by pins.

Riley Jennings, the only senior on the Vikings varsity, lost his opening-round match by pin. Trailing 7-0 midway through the third period, Jennings won his first consolation match on a reversal and then a pin at 4:20. Jennings lost his final match by a major decision.

Horrillo, a junior, had three tough matches, losing his opener 6-4, winning in overtime 3-2 and dropping his final match 2-1.
