Esquivel takes gold at California USA Folkstyle Junior Wrestling
Standout wrestler Celia Esquivel recently placed first at the California USA Folkstyle Junior Girls State Championships. Esquivel’s showing comes off a very successful high school season where she took third place at the Area 2 championships at 103 pounds and numerous first place finishes at tourneys across the state.
Esquivel’s accomplishments bode well for her chances to earn a scholarship when her high school tenure concludes. Most recently, the Woman’s Collegiate Wrestling Coalition reported 43 collegiate programs that meet the emerging sport sponsorship criteria, making those women wrestling programs eligible to be a NCAA championship sport officially this July.
