Wrestling tourney to draw 12 teams

October 11, 2013 

Teams from 12 California schools will gather Saturday for the Mike Camana Invitational, Modesto Junior College's annual wrestling tournament.

The event, named for the late father of former MJC wrestler Aman Camana, also features Skyline, Chabot, Menlo, Shasta, Lassen, Mt. San Antonio, Rio Hondo, Victor Valley, West Hills, Santa Rosa and Delta along with the host Pirates.

Action begins at 9 a.m. at MJC Gym with the finals scheduled to start at about 5 p.m.

Skyline will make a return trip to Modesto after it was beaten by MJC 27-19 in Coast Conference action Wednesday night. Winning by fall for Modesto was Jesse McDaniel (184) while teammate Carson Homuth (149) worked for a 7-3 victory. Luis Quintero (157) and Latrell Benjamin (165) each earned 1-point decisions.


• COMEBACK — The Pirates (14-4, 2-1), inspired by an all-around performance by Sierrah Miller, rallied from a 2-1 deficit for an important Big 8 Conference road win over Sacramento (7-8, 0-3). Modesto, which dropped a match via a forfeit to Sierra last week in a scheduling mixup, survived 25-21, 16-25, 19-25, 25-16, 15-11. Miller had 26 kills.
