College Notebook: Talavera brothers make impact for Southern Oregon wrestling

By , Columbian Sports Editor

The Talavera brothers have wasted no time pinning down key roles on the Southern Oregon wrestling team.

Freshman Noah Talavera improved to 3-1 with a major decision in a dual meet against San Francisco State last weekend. The 15-6 victory at 165 pounds saw the Union graduate improve to 3-1 in dual matches this season.

He joins older brother JJ Talavera, who leads Southern Oregon with 11 wins this season including a second-place finish at the Spokane Open last month. Though he didn’t wrestle against SF State, the 157-pounder was set to return to the mat Thursday against No. 13-ranked Menlo.

Over his two seasons at Southern Oregon, the elder Talavera is 23-7 including a 5-1 dual record.
