Umpqua Community College’s Sawyer Myres finished second at the 31-team Clackamas Open on Sunday in Oregon City.

Myres fell to Shonn Roberts of Providence, Montana, in the first-place match of the 149-pound bracket in 1:30, but defeated his other three opponents.

Myres received a first-round bye, but won a 10-0 major decision over Central Washington University’s John Dickerson in the second round. In the quarterfinals he won by injury default over Clackamas Community College’s Marty Margolis III. Myres pinned Zachery Sias of Warner Pacific in 1:05 in the semifinals to advance to the title match.

Myres was the lone UCC wrestler to place at the Clackamas Open.

In the 149-pound bracket, Garrett Russell made it to the consolation semifinals, where he fell in 1:02 to North Idaho College’s Bryce Parson. Russell won five matches — two by forfeit — and dropped a 6-4 decision in the second round to drop him into the consolation bracket.

Brayden Schultz made it to the quarterfinals in the 197-pound competition where he fell in 5:13 to Eastern Oregon University’s Harley Dilulo.

Umpqua will host Highline Community College and Clackmas Community College on Saturday.
