Ramirez Wins Third Section Masters' Championship

Martin Ramirez-2nd EG man to win SJS Masters three times
Elk Grove 132-pound wrestler Martin Ramirez has won his third straight Sac-Joaquin Section Masters' Wrestling championship. Two years ago he won the title at 119 pounds and last season at 126 pounds. He finished third in the state at that weight class. 

Today he defeated Julian Purdy of Nevada Union, 6-4, to win the 132-pound title.

He'll likely be the number one seed when the State Wrestling Championships start next week in Bakersfield.

The only other three-time Masters' Champion in Elk Grove was Adam Coffing who won three titles between 1993 and 1996.

Eight Herd wrestlers have qualified for the State Meet.  Jacob Lopez was second at 108 pounds, dropping a 7-3 decision to Gionn Peralta of Vacaville in the championship match.

Josh Letuligasenoa lost in the championship of the 220-pound weight group to J.T. Goodwin of Bear Creek, 6-5. Ethan Larrabee was fifth at 113 pounds.
