By: Staff Report
It's a long, hard road to get to the greater Sacramento area Regional Wrestling Championships and a small contingent of Folsom's top middle school age wrestlers qualified and competed at Elk Grove High School on Saturday. The matches were hard-hitting, emotional rollercoaster rides with closely-matched competition and a prestigious title on the line. In the end, five of the Folsom hopefuls placed. Derek Stiles went home with a first-place title at 168 pounds. Curtis Booth (62) and Nick Fiegenor (100) both placed second, Jeffrey Garrido (89)finished third and Dalton Boyer (66)and Chris Cooper (128) took fourth. In the team competition, Folsom Middle School finished fourth. Qualified wrestlers will continue training for Northern California's Tournament of Champions (TOC) in two weeks.
