CV wrestlers lose to Central Catholic, team sections no longer attainable
Ahead 19-12 after the first six matches, Central Valley High School's varsity wrestling team struggled the rest of the way en route to a 44-25 loss to Central Catholic on Wednesday in Ceres.

"I knew it would take a perfect performance by our kids to pull it out," Hawks head coach Rob Beckhart said. "We made some mistakes. The disappointing part is I still feel we have the talent to beat them."

The Hawks dropped to 7-4 on the year and third place in the Western Athletic Conference dual-meet standings (3-2).

The Raiders (4-1) took over sole possession of second place.

The loss eliminated Central Valley from the race for the second and final berth for the Sac-Joaquin Section Team Dual Championships.
