Four area wrestlers were named to the All Metro Wrestling Team. Selected to the first team was Ponderosa Nick Troquato (182 pounds) and Jeff Camilli (HWT) who both medaled earlier this month at the CIF State Wrestling Championships at Bakerfield’s Rabobank Arena. Troquato, 51-3 on the season and a Masters champion, took fourth place in the state while Camilli, a Fresno State football recruit, took seventh. Oak Ridge’s Keaton Subjeck, expected to earn a school record-tying third state medal before an injury ended his season, was also a first team pick. Subjeck (170) went 40-5 and will wrestle for Stanford. Bruin Trae Providence (152), who came on in the postseason and won several matches at Rabobank, was a second team selection.
