Newark Memorial High School grapplers opened their season at the Annual Iron Man Tournament held at Newark Memorial High School last weekend. This year's tournament featured a combination of two formats: dual meets and an individual 16-man bracket.
With outstanding 3-0 performances by Trevor Hubby, Anthony Rubio and Victor Pereira who led the way, the rest of the team garnered three second place finishes, two third place and four fourth place awards. Newark Memorial placed first with 181.5 points. The top four team standings were as follows: First Place: Newark Memorial 181.5 pts; Second Place: Selma 179.5 pts; Third Place: College Park 141 pts; Fourth Place: Firebaugh 121.5 pts.
The Cougars' power and speed was obvious in the Tournament and the coaching staff was excited about the results of an off-season training program. They were elated that Newark was able to compete with Selma which has an excellent wrestling program and one of the best wrestler's in the state.
In dual meet competition, the Cougars were led by First Place wrestlers, Tung Lee and Victor Pereira as they garnered a 6-1 record.
Congratulations to Newark Memorial High School!
