Wrestling: 14 area wrestlers qualify for State, Northview’s Frank Martinez wins thriller in final

“He was trying to keep me down,” said Northview’s Frank Martinez, who improved to 48-0. “So, I tried to get my hands up and get out.”

Not only did the Whittier area and San Gabriel Valley combine to qualify 14 wrestlers to next week’s CIF-State meet but the areas also produced a couple of champions at Saturday’s CIF-Southern Section Masters Meet at Temecula Valley High. Perhaps the day’s biggest drama took place in the 140-pound final between Northview High School’s Frank Martinez and El Dorado’s Charles Chavez.

    I’M BACK. BUSY PLAYING TENNIS I MEAN BOWLING, HEY FRED! WHY IS IT, THAT YOU ALWAYS FORGET TO NOTICE THE OTHER AREA WRESTLERS IN THE SGV WHEN THEY ALSO DO GOOD?, YOU STATE THAT YOU WOULD PROVIDE MORE INFORMATION WHEN CIF DUALS/INDV/MASTERS WOULD COME AROUND, AND NOW IN YOUR BASKETBALL BLOG YOU ARE ASKING FOR ALL-LEAGUE INPUT, BUT YOU HAVE NOT ONCE ASKED FOR ANY WRESTLING ALL-LEAGUE INFORMATION.
