For the second year in row the Sharyland Lady Rattlers are bi-district champions. The District 30-5A runner-ups took down Laredo Nixon. Ironically, it was Nixon who Sharyland took down last year.
The Lady Rattlers will move on to play the winner of Harlingen and Brownsville Rivera.
SAN ANTONIO – Though the Palmview Lobos took home the District 31 Wrestling Championships a week ago, their showing at the Region IV tournament was not as pretty. However, Christian Garza did finish third and will be moving on to the state tournament in two weeks.
Garza won his first two matches, taking down Senon Moya of Weslaco East and Rudy Rivera of Macarthur. After losing to Will Becker of Cedar Park in the third round, Garza rebounded by taking down Nikki Rowe’s Akim Gonzalez and then Frankie Garcia of Georgetown for the third place finish.
