Brandon Jeffers, left, and Caleb Jeffers both won titles Saturday for Roseburg at the Class 6A Special District 6 tournament at North Medford High School. The brothers are among 22 Indians advancing to the OSAA Class 6A Championships.

Roseburg had 10 wrestlers claim individual championships and will send 22 to state after winning the Class 6A Special District 6 tournament at North Medford High School this weekend.

The Indians, ranked No. 2 by Oregon Wrestling Forum, rolled to the team title with 526.5 points. North Medford was second with 326.5.

“I feel good about that, the numbers (to state) are good,” said RHS coach Steve Lander. “I think we wrestled well. We had some kids who hadn’t been to state before qualify and others who were competing in their first district meet make it. We’ll enjoy this for a day or two, then get back to work.”

Roseburg’s Logan Folsom topped teammate Ethan Stoner 5-4 to take the 160-pound title. Folsom was the No. 1 seed and Stoner was No. 2.

Top-seeded Cameron Cross won the championship at 106 with a pin of North Medford’s Alex Silva in 1:33. Top-seeded Thomas Spence pinned North Medford’s Benjamin Ziegler in 5:20 to take the crown at 126.

“Cameron Cross was pretty dominant in the tournament,” Lander said.

At 132, Roseburg freshman Caleb Jeffers was able to pin Adam Bratland of Sheldon in 4:21. Top-seeded Brandon Jeffers, Caleb’s older brother, pinned South Medford’s Ryan Beck in 3:07 at 182.

“Caleb Jeffers was a bit of a surprise at 132,” Lander said. “He’s been dealing with some adversity with his health. He’s a freshman, and to see him win was exciting.”

Roseburg’s Austin David won a 3-2 decision over Andres Ramires of North Medford in the 152-pound final. Garrett Russell won the title at 170 with an 8-4 decision over South Medford’s Cole Schumack.

In the 120-pound final, Roseburg teammates Hunter Sparks and Kahleb Diaz faced each other. Sparks, the No. 1 seed, won by forfeit. Roseburg’s Colin Rietmann, the No. 2 seed, won the 145-pound match by forfeit over teammate Darian Thacker.

Roseburg’s Terrell Jacks won the 195-pound title with a 7-2 decision over Joshua Robbins of North Medford.

Shaun Konig (126), Tristin David (132), Archer Bergeron (138), Devin Folk (138), Bryson Diaz (152), Rourke Martin (170), Doran Gillespie (182), Owen Vredenburg (195) and Cayden Gingery (220) will also represent the Tribe at the 6A Championships, scheduled Feb. 16-17 at Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Portland.
