Junior Varsity Wrestling Sections 29 Jan 18
MAHACA JV (9th grade league) wrestlers competed in the individual section tournament in Tracy on Saturday, Jan. 27.  There are 15 weight classes, and MAHACA had 14 wrestlers (we do not have a heavyweight).  You can only bring one wrestler per weight class.  One wrestler couldn’t attend due to the flu, but 13 wrestlers attended, and no one finished lower than 8th place.  The top 2 wrestlers in each weight class get to go on to the state tournament next Saturday, Feb 3rd.  Those two were  Jed Feuchtenberger and Hunter Gibson, pictured above.  Casey Nelson and Tristan Raths had very close matches but ended up in the 3rd place spot.  Overall the team did excellent.
 
15 teams participated in the individual section tournament.  Throughout the day, the scores of each individual wrestler gets added to their team score.  MAHACA finished in 3rd place out of 15, with ACGC taking 2nd and Redwood-River Valley taking 1st.
