This past weekend at the San Diego Section Masters Wrestling tournament, Noah Rupp took 3rd Place in the 172 lb weight class. Rupp went 4-1 overall and his only loss was to a familiar opponent from Brawley in the championship semi-finals in over-time. Rupp made his way to the consolation semi-finals and convincingly defeated his RBV opponent with a major decision. His next match was in the finals for 3rd/4th place where he pinned his Westview opponent in the second period. Rupp qualified for the State tourney last year and went 3-2, missing the podium by only 2 rounds.
The top four wrestlers from each weight class will advance to the CA State Championships this Thursday through Saturday in Bakersfield CA. In all, the top 40 wrestlers at each weight class, from all over California, will be competing for 1 of 8 spots on the championship podium.
This is another huge accomplishment to an already fantistic high school wrestling career for Noah Rupp. We wish him the best of luck as he prepares to represent Maranatha one last time at the State Championships.
