Mid-Valley wrestlers won seven state titles Sunday at the OSAA state championships at Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Portland.

In 6A boys, McNary’s Max Blanco (106 pounds) and Josh Friesen (170 pounds) won state championships. 

“I knew I was going to win, kind of,” said Blanco, who won 9-7 in the title match. “When it was 7-7, I’ve got to go all out now. I’ve got to give it everything I’ve got.”

In 6A/5A girls, West Salem’s Reese Lawson (145 pound), North Salem’s Mariko Sonis (120 pounds), McNary’s Ali Martinez (190 pounds) and Dallas’s Polly Olliff (105 pounds) won state championships. 

McNary’s Ali Martinez grapples with David Douglas’ Mckenzie Mills in the 5A/6A girls 190-pound championship match during the OSAA wrestling state championships at Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Portland on Sunday.

“I was really focused,” Lawson said. “I was really nervous, but I knew if I stuck to what I know how to do, I’d do good.”
