Good morning all:
I just arrived at Rabobank Arena for the final day of the CIF State wrestling tournament.
Our area has five competitors still alive, four of which are in the semifinals.
La Habra’s Aaron Le Farge just got knocked out the tournament. He lost by fall in the consolation fifth round by Sean Silva of Barstow.
The remaining four are Northview’s Steven Salinas (119) and Frank Martinez (130), California’s Matt Melendrez (145) and Santa Fe’s Nikolai Crouch (189). I will update how they do today in the comments section.
