PIL Athletes Shine at 2024 Wrestling State Championships, Earn Two Individual Titles

The 2024 wrestling season reached its conclusion at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum for the 6A State Championships on February 23rd and 24th. 

Dozens of student-athletes from the PIL made it to compete with their peers from around the state on both the boys' and girls’ sides. 

This year the PIL is proud to celebrate two individual state champions from the girls' 6A/5A championships. Cleveland’s Isabel Herring and Ida B Wells’ Zorina Johnson were both the best wrestlers in Oregon this season in their respective classes. 

They were joined on the girls’ side by three other semifinalists: Maria Caudillo (Cleveland), Lillian Courtnage-Dyke (Grant), and Emony Greely (Roosevelt), as well as two more girls’ quarterfinalists: Niazeal Orduna Torres (Grant) and Micah Muir (Lincoln)

On the boys’ side, Jefferson’s Titus Rodela made it the furthest, finishing second in the state after reaching the final for his class. Lincoln’s Elijah Borrayo was the other semifinalist from the PIL this season.

Additionally, the league produced five more boys’ quarterfinalists: Isaiah Snyder (McDaniel), Nico Farinola (Lincoln), Ethan Holstein (McDaniel), Max Copus (Cleveland), and Dane Hartmann (Franklin).

Overall, eight PIL schools were represented in this year's state quarterfinals. Congratulations to our PIL student-athletes and coaches on a tremendous wrestling season!
