MCHS wins section title in wrestling

The Mariposa County High School Grizzlies wrapped up another section title on Saturday, competing at Lincoln High School in the Sac-Joaquin Section Team Dual Wrestling Championships.

MCHS defeated Golden Sierra 63-12 (winning all but two matches) in the first round of the tournament before holding off Big Valley Christian 48-34. Michael Wilson of MCHS helped preserve the section title victory by earning an important pin late in one of the final matches of the day.

MCHS was without a handful of wrestlers due to various ailments but overcame the odds to win. 

The MCHS Lady Grizzlies also had an outstanding weekend. MCHS placed fifth out of 45 teams at the Southern Regional Tournament. Several MCHS Lady Griz will now advance to the Masters Tournament to be held in two weeks.
