Mountain Wrestling competed last weekend in the 18th Annual Don Olson Memorial (The Bash) at West Hills College in Lemoore, finishing in 19th place in a field of 30 teams.

Tehachapi had four wrestlers compete in the tournament, with senior Fletcher Allen (132 pounds) finishing in fourth place and senior Thomas Duran (160 pounds) taking sixth place.

Allen reached the quarterfinals of his bracket with a 9-4 decision win over an opponent from Clovis North, and then reached the semis with a 6-4 decision win over an opponent from Dinuba. Allen closed the tournament with a pin at the 4:49 mark over an opponent from Mission Oak.

Duran recorded a pair of pins to open up the tournament, the first from an opponent from Mt. Whitney and another pin at 3:47 off a Dos Palos wrestler. Duran also had two more wins in the consolation rounds, first off a disqualification from an opponent from Fresno and a pin at 1:26 from an opponent from Hanford.

Also competing was freshmen Arturo Meza in the 113 pound weight class and senior Lance Stone in the 145 pound weight class.
