LOOMIS — Jimmy Scarr, an eighth-grade wrestler at Camerado Middle School, won the 100-pound weight division in the 43rd annual Northern California Junior High Tournament of Champions.

The tournament, co-hosted by Golden Sierra and Del Oro high schools and the Georgetown Wrestling Club, includes the top junior high wrestlers in Northern California from Bakersfield to the California-Oregon border.

Wrestlers, members of their school programs or outside wrestling clubs must qualify through the season to enter the TOC.

Scarr, who wrestles for the Scarr Wrestling Academy, earned a 17-1 technical fall over Hank Isaak of Navelencia in the opening round Saturday morning, and fought to a 9-0 major decision in his next bout.

He defeated Selma’s Ruben Garcia 10-3 and Zach Buybal of Loomis 6-0 in the semifinals and capped off his day with a 4-2 victory in overtime over Jesse Vasquez of the Gilroy Hawks for the championship.

After giving up a takedown in the first period, Scarr tied it with a takedown at the end of the period and neither wrestler could score in the next two periods, sending the match in to overtime. Scarr took Vasquez down midway through and rode him the rest of the way for the win.

Brandon Claiborne (108) from the El Dorado Hills Wrestling Club won his first four matches before dropping a 6-1 decision to Anthony Hernandez of Jepson in the semifinals. Claiborne bounced back to win his next two, including a 10-0 major decision over Bobby Miguel of the T-Birds to take third.

Pleasant Valley’s Colin Hustrulid (112) and Scarr Wrestling Acadamy’s Curtis Booth (83) both finished fourth with 5-2 records. Jarod Nooner (168) representing Pleasant Grove won five and lost two matches to take sixth. Elan Tubbs (95) of Sierra Ridge took eighth with a 4-1 record.
