On the same day the Northview High School boys wrestling team won the CIF-Southern Section Division 2 dual team title, the Northview girls were making history of its own, edging rival West Covina to capture the CIF-Southern California Girls Wrestling Regional at Beaumont High School on Saturday.
Northview’s Vanessa Gomez (103 pounds) was the only individual champion for the Vikings, who won the team title with 242 points to hold off second-place West Covina with 235.
Even though West Covina beat Northview head-to-head in two different finals, it wasn’t enough to lift the Bulldogs past the Vikings in the team competition. (To continue click thread)
