Sunset Conference District Four A-2 The Sunset Conference was one of the original participants in the state A-2 & B tournament in 1959. The league almost didn't participate that year, though, as a severe blizzard hit the coast and the Saturday tour- nament had to be rescheduled for Tuesday, just three days before the Corvallis championships. Only three teams participated, two wrestlers making it to state unopposed. Six wrestlers placed in state that first year. In 1961, Myrtle Point placed second at state with three champions and one runner-up. The district had one more champion, one runner-up and a third placer for a very strong showing overall. The best year the Sunset Conference ever had came in 1969. Myrtle Point High School, third best team at the Sunset Six championships, walked off with the state team title. This winning team had one champion, one runner-up and four consolation placers. The league also finished at the top that year with a total of two champs, three seconds and nine consolation placers. Four Sunset Conference wrestlers have won two state titles each. They are Mickey Kinchloe, Bill Mack and Jim Mast of Myrtle Point and Herb Reiling of Brookings. In 1966, Jerry Stidham of Myrtle Point won the league's only Triple Crown.
