Mikey Mello


El Dorado Hills Club wrestler Mikey Mello, pictured at right, an incoming Oak Ridge High freshman when the school year starts toward the end of next week, had an enjoyable summer that included earning honors at the USA Schoolboy National Tournament in Oren, Utah.
Mello competed in the Schoolboy division — middle school — of freestyle and Greco-Roman styles of wrestling, and finished 7th and 8th places respectively to earn All-American status in both styles.
He is believed to be El Dorado Hills’ first ever back-to-back Greco All-American.
Older brothers, Ricky and Bobby, who will be sophomores at Oak Ridge, also faced some of the best competition at Western Regionals in Pocatello, Idaho, recently.
Ricky competed in 25 matches, and Bobby, 15. Mikey Mello also competed, and had 15 matches.
All three of them qualified for their National tournaments in Orem, Utah and Fargo, N.D. The regional tournament was comprised of grapplers from Hawaii, Alaska, Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Idaho, Montana, Utah and Arizona.
