SC Wrestlers Place at State Tournament
Kelan Stever and Vincent Morales, two members of the San Clemente Youth Wrestling Club, placed at the SCWAY California State Championship tournament in Clovis on April 2.
Stever, who wrestles in the 7- to 8-year old division and Morales, who competes in the middle school division, had to compete against the best wrestlers in the state over the two-day event. Morales placed seventh in his division, and Stever placed eighth.
The tournament capped off successful seasons for both young grapplers, who had to qualify through multiple regional events to reach the SCWAY Championships. A highlight of the season for Morales and Stever came at the Orange County Championship tournament, where Stever placed first and Morales placed fourth. The high finishes qualified the two wrestler’s spot in the state championship.
