The Stallion Wrestling Club recently participated in the California USA Freestyle State Championships and came away with the intermediate division’s girls state championship.

The club took 22 wrestlers to the event at Fresno Selland Arena on June 1-2 and 14 placed at the tournament.

“One of the many goals this program focuses on is creating opportunities for the kids of Madera,” coach Eddie Cortez said. “We want to be able to serve the youth during the ‘off season’ to enable them to grow as invidivuals and wrestlers. Our club age ranges from 5 years of age up to 14 at the moment.”

Stallion Wrestling Club coach Sal Gonzalez brought in Michigan State wrestling coach Chris Williams andwrestler Jaden Enriquez to host a two day camp last week.

“It is not usual for a coach of this caliber to come through Madera to hold a camp so it was truly an honor,” Cortez said.
