The Escalon Wrestling Club, EWC, com­peted at Sum­merville High School in Tuolumne City in the Mother Lode Wrestling Club’s an­nual Mother Lode Ma­nia SCWAY Zone 2-3 tour­na­ment on Sun­day, Jan. 22. The tour­na­ment also served as a Tour­na­ment of Cham­pi­ons (TOC) Qual­i­fier for wrestlers in grades 6-8.

“We had 36 reg­is­ter for the tour­na­ment and at least 28 of them placed in the top four and brought home medals. We had seven champs in a very com­pet­i­tive field,” stated EWC Pres­i­dent Derek Scott. “EJ Lewis took home a gold medal and joined JP Lial and Chris­tian Rowe as our Club’s TOC qual­i­fiers.”

De­spite the win­try weather mix, Scott said he was pleased with the sup­port the club re­ceived at the Sun­day event.

“Hav­ing 36 wrestlers and their fam­i­lies travel up to Tuolumne City in bad weather shows how strong of a com­mit­ment they’ve made to wrestling,” noted Scott. “And El Por­tal Mid­dle School’s pro­gram has started up so there is a lot go­ing on with Escalon wrestling as a whole.”

Fol­low­ing is a list of the Jan. 22 medal win­ners for the EWC.

Cham­pi­ons: Vince Reis, Caleb Boat­man, An­thony Jones, Alex Gu­tier­rez, Gideon Ger­ber, EJ Lewis, Sammy Hi­no­josa.
