Warrenton’s Nic Pior, left, and Aidan Tice of Seaside were named the most outstanding wrestlers of the Warrenton Invitational.

Warrenton scored 323 points and finished with six individual champions to win their annual tournament for the second year in a row, Dec. 14 at Warrenton High School.

Warrenton swarmed the competition, as the Warriors finished well ahead of second place Vernonia (182 points), with Seaside (178.5) third. Ilwaco was fourth, followed by Raymond, Astoria, Clatskanie, Knappa and Wahkiakum.

Seaside’s Aidan Tice (most outstanding wrestler in the upper weights) won four matches to win the championship at 152 pounds, where Tice had a 51-second pin against Raymond’s Oscar Juarez, a 17-2 technical fall over Clatskanie’s Mike Hinsz, another quick pin (59 seconds) over Wahkiakum’s Braxton Jones, then a hard-earned pin (3:23) over Ilwaco’s Keegan Kemmer in the final.

A 4A state title contender, Seaside’s Luke Nelson pinned Cayden Mendez in 1:11 in the final at 220 pounds.
