Baker had three individual placers and took 10th in the team standings Saturday at the annual Muilenburg Memorial wrestling tournament at La Grande High School.

Jon Henry finished 4-1 to place third at 171 pounds. Grant Marcum was 3-2 to place sixth at 119. Nick Garrick also finished 4-1 to win the consolation championship at 275.

"We were impressed with the kids," said Baker coach Dee Gorrell. "We have a young team. A lot of the kids went much farther then we might have expected. They continue to improve by leaps and bounds."

Gorrell said he was especially impressed since at least a half dozen of the teams at the tournament were either state champions or runners up last season.

"Overall, teamwise I was happy to be in the top 10," Gorrell said.

Estacada won the tournament. Union/Powder Valley won the small school title.

The Baker JV compete at a tournament in Pendleton today. Baker hosts its own dual tournament Saturday.
