Wrestling: Masters Meet takes center stage

For complete pairings and results of the Masters, click thread

By Steve Ramirez, Staff Writer
February is about surviving and advancing for high school wrestlers.
It’s the same this weekend, when 35 area competitors look to advance to next week’s CIF State championships when they take part in the CIF-Southern Section Masters Meet at Temecula High School. The meet begins today at 10 a.m., with preliminary bouts, and concludes Saturday. The top nine competitors in each weight class advance to the state championships, scheduled for March 5-6 at Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield.


“I tell my guys it’s all about advancing,” said South Hills coach Robb Froh, whose Huskies will have an area-best seven competitors. “While it’s nice to win a (Southern Section title), what you really want is to be (at Bakersfield).”

Area competitors, led by traditional-powers Northview, South Hills and West Covina, are expected to be in position to punch their tickets north.

Atop the area contingent is Northview senior Frank Martinez, who is the favorite to win at 140 pounds after winning at the 5-Counties Invitational earlier this season and following it up with Valle Vista League and CIF-SS Northern Division championships the past few weeks. He is ranked No. 1 in the state at 140.

Others who will be in position to score titles are Rosemead’s Matt Fregoso, who is ranked No. 9 in the state at 119, and Arroyo’s Noel Blanco, ranked No. 7 at 145. Fregoso won a Southern Division title last week, while Blanco finished second in that division.

Area competitors who are expected to be in position to advance include Northview’s Nick Jacobo (103), who was lower-weight MVP at the Northern Division finals; Glendora’s Haydn Scharbrough (140), who was Eastern Division lower-weight MVP; and La Puente’s Jesus Vargas (215), who qualified for the state last season and finished second at the Southern Division finals last week.

Others to look out for are South Hills’ Trevor Behr (140), Sierra Vista’s Jose Maldonado (135), Glendora’s Jacob Hoxsey (160) and Diamond Bar’s Brian Ryu (heavyweight).

    Unfortunately this happens every year. I know of several area coaches that call in there results and not even a blip in the paper. But there are many wrestling fans that have had the privilige of watching Raymond have a great year. Good kid from a great family that started wrestling as a freshman. Good luck to him in Bakersfield, I know I’ll be watching and rooting for him.

    ol galera, com certeza ter um veculo custoso devido ao altos custos de algumas empresas como as de leasing. Estas nem do valor ao contrato assinado ou tem escondidas em letras ilegveis regras que no beneficiam ao consumidor do automvel. O Cdigo do Consumidor muitas vezes no protege todas as clauslas do consumidor. Estava lendo umas experincias no http://www.carrousado.org sobre todos os cuidados para a compra sem ter dor de cabea depois. Foi mal, realmente est difcil fazer bons negcios.

    Boa tarde companheiros, provavelmente possuir um automvel difcil devido ao altos custos de algumas empresas como as de vendas de usados. Estas nem do valor ao contrato feito ou tem escondidas em letras ilegveis deveres que no beneficiam ao comprador do carro. O Cdigo do Consumidor muitas vezes no protege todas as deveres do comprador. Estava lendo umas conselhos no http://www.carrousado.org sobre todos os passos para a compra sem ter dor de cabea depois. s um desabafo, realmente est difcil fazer boas compras.

    ol pessoal, verdadeiramente enviar um SMS gratuito est cada vez mais oneroso devido falta de opes das operadoras mveis. H ainda servios de terceiros (sites) que prometem entregar meu torpedo mas quase nunca chegam destinatrio final. Alguns como o Mundo oi e o Oi Torpedo funcionam mas e para as outras operadoras? E os que dizem que enviam e nada chega. Para onde est indo as meus SMS? E para a Tim, Vivo? Alguma Idia? Ou significa ter de comprar?. Desculpem, realmente est difcil achar bons sites para enviar SMS sem custo.
