LA GRANDE — Mac-Hi wrapped up a perfect Greater Oregon League dual season with a 51-29 victory over La Grande Thursday night.

With their third dual victory in as many tries, the Pioneers earned the league crown.

“It feels great to become champions, the boys have put in the work and they deserve it,” Mac-Hi coach Beau Chester said in an email.

In a night riddled with forfeits, Mac-Hi won 4 of 5 weights that actually went to the mat. Riley Chester (120), Gabe McAlester (138), Josh Torres (195) and Gregory Morenoa (285) all took victories Thursday. McAlester, Torres and Moreno all won by pin.

Chester won his via a 9-3 decision over the Tigers Cory Isaacson.

Reigning state champion Cole Rohan of La Grande was the lone victorious Tiger. He defeated Mac-Hi’s Deazon Zerba by technical fall in the 106-pound match.

Mac-Hi will complete its individual tournament season at Heppner Saturday. The Pioneers will host the District 4 regionals on Feb. 14.
