Elk Grove's full contingent of 14 wrestlers did quite well in day one of the Sac-Joaquin Section Masters' Wrestling Tournament at the Stockton Arena. Thanks to Will DeBoard of the Section, here's the team scoring after today:
Elk Grove 101.5
Bella Vista 53
Del Oro 46
Oak Ridge 45
In the quarterfinals 106 pounder Jacob Lopez and 113 pounder Ethan Larrabee both won. So did 132-pounder Martin Ramirez. He's going for his third Masters' championship.
Braden Henderson also is in the semis with a with at 145 pounds. Josh Letuligasenoa made the semi-finals, which will be tomorrow, at 220 pounds. This means these five have assured themselves of a spot in the State Wrestling meet in a week.
A few other local wrestlers are still alive in the race for the top seven places to qualify for Bakersfield. We'll have an update for you Friday night. You can follow Will's updates on the Sac-Joaquin Section Blogsite for continuous updates from Stockton.
