Nikko Triggas did it again.

The Campolindo High School junior won the 112-pound division of the nationally-prestigious Reno Tournament of Champions on Tuesday. He also won a national title at the Asics/Ironman Wrestling Tournament in Ohio Dec. 9-10.

Las Lomas sophomore Jason Welch also won a TOC championship at 152. He is coming off a third-place finish at the Ironman.

Five other wrestlers in the Times region placed in the top eight in Reno. Foothill’s Kellen Aura (103) finished third, Freedom’s David Prado (119) and Las Lomas’ Jason Swisher (215) were fourth, and Foothill’s Phil Boyer (125) and Tommy Wipfli (135) placed fifth and eighth, respectively.

This was a great showing by the locals in a such a highly-competitive tournament.
