Roseburg has a battle in state team race
After three consecutive state titles, and five in six years, sending 17 wrestlers to the state tournament would basically put Roseburg High into its fourth-straight and six in seven years.
That would be an easy conclusion.
But, David Douglas has been building for several years, is coming off a second-place finish and has more district champions than the Indians do as the state tournament prepares to begin Friday at Memorial Coliseum.
And, Hillsboro and McNary seem ready to be contenders as well.
A title by any of those three teams would take fans into their history books as none has won a team title since 1990, when Hillsboro won. McNary hasn’t won since 1975, and David Douglas last won in 1966.
