One wrestler who had a successful tournament but didn’t win his weight class at Inland Empire TOC was San Bernardino High junior Alex Mattison, the all-Sun running back who is in his first season wrestling.
“I wanted to stay active, but I wanted to do something new,” Mattison said. “I played basketball last year.”
Mattison was seeded second and finished second in the 195-pound weight class on Saturday, a week after winning the Raymond Willemstein Invitational at Ontario High.
Mattison admits he has another reason for wrestling. Adding another sport to his resume, and hopefully one at which he can be successful, gives him a better chance of winning the Ken Hubbs Award as a senior, he reasons. Mattison also runs for the track and field team in the spring.
