Madera’s Alec Gamboa faced a familiar opponent in the Central Section Masters and came away with the same result to advance to the State Wrestling Championship Friday and Saturday at Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield.
Gamboa faced Nick Callender of Clovis East in the 170 pound Consolation Championship and came away with a pin for a third place medal Saturday at Mt. Whitney High School in Visalia.
Gamboa defeated Callender 1-0 on Feb. 16 to win the Consolation Championship in the Yosemite Divisionals at Madera South.
Gamboa will be joined by four other teammates at the State Wrestling Championships...
