MEAD – Five of the 14 members of the Sunnyside Little Grapplers who made the trip to Mead last Saturday returned home with first-place medals.
The five champions at the Spokane-area wrestling tournament included Joe Ayala (5/6-year-olds); Joan Gonzalez and Jesus Carreon (9/10-year-olds); Abraham Arreola (11/12-year-olds); and Alfonso Ramos (13/14-year-olds).
The Sunnyside Little Grapplers also secured a pair of third-place finishes at the Mead tourney. The two medalists were Daniel Cardenas and Isaac Guillen, both 13/14-year-old age division competitors.
The Little Grapplers are planning to compete this coming Saturday at a tourney in Waitsburg, with the final tournament of the season slated for April 12 in Spokane.
