Grappling in Granger

Zillah’s Alex Martinez crossfaces Sunnyside Little Grappler’s Juan Rodriguez in the third round of the tournament on Saturday.

GRANGER — With only a short drive, 51 members of the Sunnyside Little Grapplers made the trip to the youth wrestling tournament March 17 at Granger High School.

Coach Daniel Guillen said there was a good turnout of family members supporting Sunnyside kids. He saw and met grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and so on.

Next on the schedule is a tournament in Moses Lake this Saturday, March 23.
