Ryan Lockman of White Salmon swept his four-man bracket last Saturday during a Northwest Junior Collegiate Wrestling Association league meet hosted by the Centennial Mat Club, in Gresham, Ore.

The Airtime Wrestling club member won the 77-pound novice class for 11- to 12-year-olds with a first-period fall, a second-period fall and a 5-4 decision against a wrestler with five years of experience.

Lockman's record now stands at 7-2 and includes a seven-match win streak.

Prep Girls Soccer:

The SWW 1A League Trico Division's top-two players were named to the Associated Press's Class 1A/2B/1B All-State First Team last month.

Columbia High senior midfielder Shannon McNallan and La Center junior defender Shelby Wilkerson were two of three SWW 1A players selected for the First Team.

At the conclusion of the 2007 season, Trico coaches chose McNallan as their offensive player of the year and Wilkerson as their defensive most valuable player for the second year in a row.

Moreover, McNallan finished fourth in the voting for 1A/2B/1B Player of the Year, an honor that went to Jasmine Stohr of Union Gap's La Salle High School.
