Tommy Bailey makes finals at Rollie Lane

WRHS wrestlers in Nampa

     Tommy Bailey put together one of his best efforts for the Wood River High School wrestling Friday and Saturday during the prestigious 47-team Rollie Lane Invitational tourney at The Idaho Center in Nampa.

     The senior 152-pounder from Hailey won six of his seven matches over two days and ended up placing second overall. Bailey lost 7-1 in the championship final to Centennial senior Kris McFarlane (25-2), who was last year’s State 5A fifth-place wrestler at 145.

     Hailey coach Shawn Huntington said, “Rollie Lane in my opinion is the toughest tournament in the state. We finished 21st out of 47 teams.” Hermiston (Ore.) was first among teams from seven states.

     Wood River entered eight wrestlers in the Rollie Lane and sent the rest of the team to the Mountain View junior varsity tournament last weekend.

     Records at the Rollie Lane: Ryan Anderson 2-3 at 103 pounds; Tim Boyle 2-3 at 120; Cooper Bailey 3-3 at 132; Kyle Clark 3-3 at 160; Storm Anderson 5-2 at 170; Thomas Heiden 4-2 at 195, losing by a single point in quadruple overtime to place in the top six; and Chris Carnes 4-2 at 285 pounds.

     In the JV tourney, three Wolverines made the finals. Kaleb Guisasola placed second at 113 pounds, Jared Anderson second at 132 and Josh King first at 170 pounds.

     Wood River travels to Filer today, Wednesday for a triangular meet with the host team and Wendell, then opens its Great Basin Conference schedule Thursday, Jan. 10 against Minico in Rupert. The Hailey matmen travel back to Nampa Saturday for the Treasure Valley dual tournament.
