Day One of the Sac-Joaquin Section Masters Wrestling Championships at the Stockton Arena is in the books and Elk Grove has a narrow 103.5 - 100.5 lead over Del Oro. What will help the Herd in Saturday's final round is that three wrestlers - Jacob Seto (113 pounds), Kalani Tonge (132 pounds) and Terrell Turner (145 pounds) - are all in the semi-finals. Plus, several other Elk Grove wrestlers will grapple for medals on Saturday.
