NorCals Start Weds., State Wrestling Reaction

So you thought basketball season was over? No, there's still the NorCals. The top four clubs in each division (those who made the Sac-Joaquin Section semi-finals) will play again this week. Joe Davidson of the Bee has in his blog today the complete seeding for the boys' teams in all divisions, plus his comments.

Pleasant Grove boys have a home game Wednesday and girls open the NorCals in the Bay Area that night, along with the Florin girls. The Sheldon boys, winners of the Section's Division I title for the third year in a row, will host a game this Saturday after earning a #2 seed and a first-round bye.

I have a story in tomorrow's Elk Grove Citizen where I interview Elk Grove wrestling coach Pat Coffing about the Herd's disappointing performance last weekend at the State Wrestling Meet. The Herd sent a school-record eight grapplers to Bakersfield, but none of them placed.

He said, in essence, the boys gave it their all, but all of them just plain got beat.

I'll post a link to that story tomorrow.

The high school baseball season officially gets underway this week. Rocklin plays at Elk Grove Tuesday. I'll be there and have photos and interviews uploaded here tomorrow night.
