OSAA State Wrestling Championships Thursday, February 14, 2008

Lebanon's Amy Bloom tries to get Marshall's Huyen B Hoang off her back Feb. 14 at the 5A state wrestling tournament in Portland. The 112-pound junior may be the only girl among more than 1,100 wrestlers competing at the tournament.

The state wrestling tournament started this morning at Memorial Coliseum in Portland. It continues through Saturday evening. You can find the latest information on the OSAA's website.

Bloom finished eighth in her bracket.

I've since discovered that there was at least one other girl wrestling at state this year—Kelsey Carl of Gold Beach competed in the 112-pound bracket for 3A schools. She finished fourth.
