  • DOUGLASS — The Newton High School wrestling team claimed five individual titles and a fourth-place team finish Saturday at the Douglas Goodwill Invitational.
    Derby won the team title with 150 points, followed by Andover Central at 143, Augusta at 137, Newton at 129, Wichita Heights at 105, Pratt at 90.5, Great Bend at 88.5, Topeka Seaman at 72, Douglass at 34.5, Goddard Eisenhower at 31, Rose Hill at 27 and Wichita South at 18.5.
    "We were the only team that put five in the finals and won all five," Newton coach Jack Thaw said. "Also, I can't remember in my 40 years of coaching where you have five first and one fourth and you finish fourth."
    Winning titles for Newton was Logan Treaster at 106 pounds, Jared Langley at 182 pounds, Hayden Mock at 195 pounds, Noah Ornales at 220 pounds and Raymond Gallegos at heavyweight.
    One other medalist was Caleb Nelson, who took fourth at 113 pounds.
    "We wrestled very well overall as a team," Thaw said. "Logan Treaster extended his record to 12-0 (11 pins, one decision). Logan wrestled outstanding from the neutral position, top and bottom. His technique was almost flawless."
    Treaster won all four of his matches by fall. He downed Nick Lucas of Pratt in 3:12 in the finals.
    Langley won three matches, two by fall. In the finals, he downed Jose Santillon of Derby 6-2.
    "Jared extended his record to 11-0," Thaw said. "Jared thus far has improved a lot. That says a lot because he was state runner-up last year at 170."
    Mock received byes in both the first and quarterfinals rounds. He won his semifinal match in 29 seconds and edged Blake Bradford of Derby 2-1 in the finals.
    "Haydon Mock won his first tournament," Thaw said. "Haydon has been a two-time state qualifier, so this is another step to becoming a state placer."
    Ornales won two of his three matches by fall. In the finals, he edged Sterling Brown of Andover Central 4-2.
    "Noah Ornales, a state qualifier as a freshman, looked extremely skillful, winning first place, going 3-0," Thaw said.
    Gallegos received a first-round bye, winning his next three matches by fall. In the finals, he stopped Jacob Crane of Great Bend in 3:11.
    "Raymond Gallegos placed first, going 3-0, and has improved his takedown skills," Thaw said. "Raymond had three pins."
    Nelson lost in the second round, won by pin in the consolation semifinals and fell to Khamin Crow of Topeka Seaman in 59 seconds in the consolation finals.
    "He has steadily improved each match," Thaw said.
    At 120 pounds, Justice Grant finished 1-2. At 126 pounds, Jeremy Christenson finished 1-2. At 132 pounds, Robert Lyles finished 0-2. At 152 pounds, Michael Vela finished 0-2. At 160 pounds, Jordan Palmer finished 0-2. At 170 pounds, Cordell Clark finished 1-2.
    Page 2 of 3 - "Justice Grant also has made tremendous gains," Thaw said. "His wrestling has improved immensely since the start of the season. Jeremy Christenson has had a good week, winning a big match at our Derby home dual, plus winning several matches at the tournament. Robert Lyles continues to improve. Robert was 0-2 at the tournament, but has steadily improved at each meet.
    "At 152, Michael Vela (freshman) stepped in and lost two hard-fought matches, but the future looks promising. At 160, Jordan Palmer stepped in and filled the spot for injured Justin McBeth. Jordan lost two hard-fought matches. Cordell Clark went 1-2, winning his first match. He too has shown a lot of improvement."
    Newton was open at 138 and 145 pounds.
    "We were open at several weights due to injuries and illness," Thaw said. "Once we get straight here, we will be much improved as a team."
    Newton competes at 8:30 a.m. Saturday at the Bishop Carroll Invitational.
    "We need to place people at the right weights and bring back our injured, and we are on the way to a great year. We had a lot of fan support, and that is appreciated by the coaches and team."
