Three Vikes perfect at Coyote tourney

BURBANK - The Mabton Viking wrestling team opened its 2011-12 season this past Tuesday at the Coyote Takedown Tournament in Burbank.

Three of the seven Viking wrestlers posted perfect 3-0 records at the invite. In girls competition, Mabton's Mary Gutierrez was undefeated in the 106-lb. weight class. Two Mabton boys also posted spotless records, Vicente Mireles (126 lbs.) and Fabian Ruiz (152 lbs.).

Posting a 2-1 record for Mabton were Bryan Arrellano (220 lbs.) and, in girls competition, Marlen Chavez (118 lbs.).

The showing for Arrellano was a positive, noted Coach John Kilian, because he was out of action all last season due to a leg injury.

Also competing for Mabton on Tuesday night were Gabriel Martinez (220 lbs.) and Eric Huesca (285 lbs.), who were both 2-0 at the tourney.

Mabton returns to action this Saturday at West Valley for the Mel Carlson Invite.
