As might have been expected, Nikko Triggas won the 119 pound title at the Five Counties meet at Fountain Valley High School on Saturday. Somewhat less expected was Foothill’s Tommy Wipfli winning the 135-pound title also. But, in what some might call an upset, Alhambra’s Jordan Abed is also bringing home some hardware, defeating Half Moon Bay’s Joey Wilson 5-4 to win the 152 pound title.
Other local finishers:
David Klingsheim (Liberty) placed fourth at 112 pounds. Kellen Aura (Foothill) finished fifth.
David Prado (Freedom) placed fifth at 125 pounds.
Tyler Sheridan (De La Salle) placed seventh at 135 pounds
Triggas (lower weights) and Abed (middle weights) were named tournament MVP’s. What a day for East Bay wrestling.
