Masters Wrestling: Davis Dominates

TEMECULA – Santa Fe High School wrestler Joey Davis didn’t get angry. He just got even in the only way he knows how – pure domination.
Davis, a little upset after an official’s decsion cost him a chance to become a four-time CIF-Southern Section divisional champion, followed up last week’s disappointment by cruising to the 160-pound title during Saturday’s CIF-SS Masters Meet at Temecula Valley High School.
Davis, the Chiefs’ first three-time Masters champion, also was named Upper Weight MVP after scoring two victories by pin and three by technical fall, including beating Martin Luther King’s Harland Kistler, 23-6, in the final.
La Habra’s Elder Cruz, who won a Southern Division title last week, was second at 195, with Santa Fe’s Kioni Villalobos placing fifth at 113. All earn spots to next weekend’s CIF State championships, scheduled for Friday and Saturday at Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield.
Davis is making the trip north for the fourth consecutive season.
Joey Davis: “There was a little anger there (this weekend). I felt what happened to be (at the Eastern Division championships) was (bull). I didn’t knock (Agustin Marquez of Shadow Hills) out. It just made me more hungry for this weekend, to dominate. I had two pins and three techs, so I was able to dominate.”
