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.
