Selma wins wrestling tourney

The Selma High wrestling team won the Five Counties Championships, which bills itself as the third toughest tournament in the nation.

Led by Alex Cisneros' victory in the 112-pound class, the Bears finished with 132 points to edge Santa Ana-Calvary Chapel, which had 130.5 points. Bakersfield was third with 119.5 points.

Selma, which finished runner-up last season, ended Poway's five-year run as team champion. Poway finished fifth. The tournament featured 122 returning state qualifiers -- about one-third of last year's participants.

Cisneros -- the 2009 state champion at 103 pounds -- made his way through six rounds to win the championship, including a 10-2 victory in the final against Ray Delgado of Oak Hills.

Selma had five wrestlers place in the top eight, including third-place finishes by Nick Pena (130) and Justin Lozano (160).

Clovis North's Vince Rodriguez won the 125s.

Lemoore's Dillan Rocha (103), Clovis West's Zach Zimmer (119) and Clovis North's Chris Calcagno (130) all took second in their weight classes.
