Ashland High junior Kirsten Ericksen smashed her own school record in the 100-yard butterfly as the Grizzlies split with North Medford, winning the boys dual but losing the girls Wednesday at the Medford YMCA pool.

Ashland High 189-pounder Christian Ostmo pinned two opponents and won a tight decision over a third to lead the Grizzlies in a three way wrestling meet against Klamath Union and Henley Thursday at Klamath Falls.

The Grizzlies also got multiple wins out of Cody Remington (135 pounds) and Jake Scarminach (160 pounds) and a victory by heavyweight Sam Cowan.

The Southern Sky Conference dual portion of the meet went down as a forfeit loss for Ashland, which did not bring enough wrestlers to match up with KU.

Ostmo pinned Max Nelson of Henley in the second period, pulled out a 6-4 decision over Dylan Steege of Klamath Union then capped a solid night with a third-period pin of Henley's Matt Walsh.

Remington also notched two victories by fall, pinning Chantz Mariscal of Klamath Union in the second period and Alex DiBrito of Klamath Union, also in the second period. Remington also was given credit for another win by forfeit.

Scarminach earned a decisive 10-3 victory over Nolan Sweet of Klamath Union, pinned Emilio Peck of Henley in the second period then was credited with a win by forfeit.

Cowan pinned Nelson Fisher of Henley in the second period.
