Clovis senior Justin Mejia won CIF State Wrestling Championship titles at 106 pounds as a freshman, 113 as a sophomore and 120 as a junior. He goes for his fourth title this weekend at 126 pounds. Mejia’s quest to join Bakersfield’s Darrell Vasquez (1999-2002) as the only four-time champions in the history of a single-division tournament launched in 1973 is the marquee attraction of what’s expected to be a banner weekend for the Central Section. Other highlights include top-ranked Buchanan’s bid to repeat as team champion; attempts for second straight individual titles by Buchanan’s Matthew Olguin and Ethan Leake, Bakersfield’s Navonte Demison and Clovis’ Seth Nevills; and 16 top-two seeded wrestlers.
