The Ceres Hawks Wrestling Club brought home eight individual medals from the SJWA-sanctioned Ripon High School tournament on Jan. 26.

"I'm very happy with how the kids performed," assistant coach Brian Becerra said. "A lot of our kids are new to the sport. They wrestled kids with more experience."
