Skyline League District Four-AA District Four-3A The Skyline League is rated the top Double-A district in overall performance. It came into being be- fore the 1970-1971 school year, combining elements of the Umpqua Valley and Rogue Valley schools. In fact, at first it was called the Umpqua-Rogue Conference be- fore adopting the name "Skyline." Eagle Point was the early power of the new league, winning all but one of the district tournaments before moving up to Triple-A prior to the 1980 champi- onships. The school also won the 1978 Double-A state tournament. Phoenix became the Double-A power in the south after Eagle Point moved up. They won the first of six state championships in 1980 (1980, 1981, 1983, 1988 , 1995 and 1996 were the years they won the title.) The 1981, 1983 and 1988 teams were of about equal relative strength. The 1981 team had two champions, three sec- onds and two consolation placers. The two Phoenix champions, Tim Mondale and Vince Lockett, were both repeaters from the year before. The 1983 team also had two champions, three seconds and two consolation placers, but the consolation places were slightly higher than in 1981. Scott Jones and John Lehnherr were the Phoenix top placers in 1983. In 1988, Phoenix again had two individual champions, followed by one other state finalist, two seconds and five other placers in the consolation bracket. The Skyline League has been the top district eight of the last twenty-five years. The strongest show- ings were in 1975 and 1976 with four champions each time. In 1975, five runners-up were also from southern schools. Of the ten teams in the league, nine had plac- ers at the state meet in both 1975 and 1976 for a very balanced district effort. Skyline Triple Crown winners have been Tris- tan Proett of Illinois Valley, Mike Bolf of Eagle Point and Robie Lawrence and Lockett of Phoenix. Other outstanding wrestlers have included two-time champi- ons Bob Chastain of Eagle Point, Mike Palmer of Dou- glas, Russ Rodgers of Henley and Steve Holden and Chuck Mondale of Phoenix. In 1991, David Vizzini of Phoenix became 3A wrestling's first four-time state champion. He also gar- nered four district crowns along the way.
