There are more than 25,000 high school wrestlers in California. But only the very best get to compete for a state championship.
The CIF Finals get underway Friday in Bakersfield and one Humboldt Del Norte wrestler is taking to the mat.
Eureka’s Kolton Martin who only has two losses this season, will compete in the 170 weight division. To advance to the state finals, the senior finished second last week at the NCS Championships. Martin has worked hard this week knowing he’ll face the top athletes during the two-day event.
