|Elk Grove Wrestler Annastassia Ramirez in action
at last weekend's State Girls' Wrestling Championships
Elk Grove freshman Annastassia Ramirez finished in the top 12 at last weekend’s Girls’ State Wrestling Championships at Lemoore High School. She had three wins and two loses at the tournament. She finished the year 38-12 with 29 pins.
The other local girls competing in Lemoore were Tita-Marie Yasay (122 pounds) of Florin who won one match and Ciara Martinez (138 pounds) of Pleasant Grove who won one match.
Ramirez’ older brother, Martin, a former three-time Masters champion at Elk Grove and now at Adams State College in Colorado, placed third at the NCAA Division II Regional Tournament at Chadron State College, last weekend. That finish earned him the "Freshman of the Year" award and qualified him for the National Tournament, March 8-9 in Birmingham Alabama.
Also competing at that tournament was Isa Hurtado, a former Sheldon Huskie. Hurtado is now wrestling for San Francisco State. He earned fifth place at the Regional.
