Taylor Takes Masters Championship at 285

Elk Grove's heavyweight wrestler Jaharee Taylor defeated Sheldon's Sam Alnassiri, 2-1, Saturday to win the Sac-Joaquin Section's Masters Tournament at 285 pounds.

Taylor, who placed second to Franklin's Tyler Hecht at the Division I-A meet last weekend, got to the championship match thanks to a double-overtime win over Jeff Camilli of Ponderosa in the semi-finals.

Late in the third period of the championship match, Taylor reversed on Alnassiri who was riding Taylor throughout much of the period. The points came with only 20 seconds remaining in the match.

Taylor's teammate, Tristan Scott, was sixth at 106 pounds. Another Elk Grove grappler, Scott Votino, got a fourth place finished at 195 pounds. Those three will represent their school next weekend at the
 California State Wrestling Tournament next weekend in Bakersfield. The top seven finishers at each weight classification qualified for the big event.

Franklin heavyweight Tyler Hecht placed third at 285 pounds.

At 182 pounds, Franklin's Joey Banks finished second and Monterey Trail's Marlon Ward was sixth.

At 113 pounds, Ethan Brewer of Sheldon earned a third place medal. Franklin's Josh Villaflor finished third at 120 pounds.
