ASHLAND -- In the first Cascade Collegiate Conference men's wrestling championships event, hosted by Southern Oregon University, the Raiders and Menlo College split the conference crown. 

The Raiders had four wrestlers reach the championship match and two won individual titles. At 125 lbs., Trey Long fell to Menlo's Mikel Perales, 10-6. In the next match, 133-pounder Matt Peterson lost to Eastern Oregon's Blake McNall 9-7.

The next two Raider wrestlers had better luck. Devin Poppen, the Raiders' most consistent wrestler all season long, won the 141-lb. weight class, defeating Matt Weber of Montana-State Northern, 12-9. 

Tanner Fischer won the penultimate match of the evening, beating Isaac Bartel of Montana-State Northern to claim an individual conference title. 

In the team standings, SOU and Menlo tied with 120 points with Providence close behind at 119 and Montana-State Northern in fourth with 117 points. The Raiders qualified at least eight wrestlers for the NAIA national tournament and could potentially have more.

After the tournament, the conference's coaches decide on three "wild card" wrestlers that didn't automatically qualify who also get to wrestle at nationals.
