Five Counties Invitational gets a little stronger

Already a tournament that many call the toughest Invitational in the state of California, the Five Counties Invitational in Fountain Valley got a little bit tougher this morning when the 125-pound champion at last week’s Doc Buchanan Invitational, Liberty’s David Klingsheim, got a spot in the tournament. After missing some match time earlier this season, Klingsheim had some matches to make up and so he’s heading south to again do battle with the top wrestlers in the state.

Scheduled to attend are the top three wrestlers in the state at 125 pounds (Lemoore’s Brandon Rocha, Sultana-Hesperia’s Ryan Fillingame and Selma’s Nick Pena) as well as Gilroy’s Martin Gonzalez, who is currently ranked No. 1 at 130 pounds. Add Klingsheim to the mix and you’ve got an unbelivable amount of talent in the 125 pound class this weekend.
