Place Winners

With military-style precision and strength, the Fresno City College Rams captured their 3rd consecutive team title at this year’s CCCAA State Wrestling Championship (hosted by Cerritos College). The Rams placed all 12 wrestlers, including four Champions and three runners up. The march  to their 16th State Team Championship featured team titles at the prestigious Golden Eagle and Santa Ana tournaments.

Head Coach Paul Keysaw and Assistant Coach George Moreno were named Coach and Assistant Coach of the Year.

Coach Keysaw’s thoughts on this year’s campaign, “I am very proud of this team. Sometimes when teams have success they stop working hard. This team worked hard and keep grinding through the end. We competed very well this weekend at the championship. The kids stepped up on the big stage and performed when it mattered most. I have to credit Coach Moreno for his practice plans and getting the guys ready to compete”

2nd Place Team – Sacramento City College

Sacramento City College placed 2nd with 119.5 team points. Head Coach Dave Pacheco assessed his team’s finals performance, “I was excited for my two finalists [Bronson Harmon at 184 and Brian Horn at 197] as they both worked hard to reach the final battle. We went one and one, but both showed true championship form. We are proud of all they accomplished to help our team.”

Palomar and Cerritos rounded out the top four teams. Greg Villoria, competing at 125 for San Joaquin Delta College was named the Outstanding Wrestler. The Manuel Gorrarian Award – Most Falls Least Accumulative Time, went to Steven Abbott (Sacramento City College), with four 1st period falls.
