The Invite had 25 wrestling groups, each with 4-to-6 wrestlers vying for first through fourth place on the podium. The format was round robin.
Local schools participating were: Georgetown, Northside, Gold Oak, Sierra Ridge, Markham, Pleasant Valley, Golden Sierra Jr. High, El Dorado Hills Wrestling Club, Herbert Green, CPM Montessori and Gold Trail.
“We wanted to put something on so that younger kids can experience wrestling in a comfortable environment — not something that runs until midnight or where the wait is four hours between matches,” Union Mine varsity coach Tim Brown said. “It a good community event and a chance to see Union Mine and its facilities.”
