The NorCal Junior High Wrestling Section started in 1994 and consists of four leagues that range from K-8th grade wrestlers that is comprised of 22 teams from Yuba/Sutter to Redding.
The Orland Jr Trojans put together some impressive wins at the NorCal Sectional Event held at Sutter High School to claim the 2014 Section Championship. This is the first time the Trojans have claimed the title. Their Head Coach is John Orsua.
Rodney Kincaid. Victory’s Head Coach was named Coach of the Year. Rodney will be moving on to High School wrestling next year. We’re going to miss him!
After facing a series of challenges with this year’s event due to scheduling conflicts at the high schools and later, space limitations at Maywood, Corning has solved their issues by securing the building at Glenn County Fairgrounds for Saturday’s event which is located at 221 E Yolo St in Orland. All other information remains accurate. Download the current flier here.
This is a nice solution as Varsity wrestlers will be right down the street at Orland High School at this year’s Spider Patch, a TOC qualifier.

The NorCal Section Coaches held their organizational Meeting last week and all are excited for the 2013-14 K-8 Wrestling season to begin. The schedule above has been updated with weekend tournament info. Tournaments will begin on November 30, 2014 with the Combat Takedown Tourney at Yuba Sutter.
In other important news, it was voted on and passed to go with SCWAY throughout the section for event insurance and cards for wrestlers. Additionally, coaches are being strongly encouraged to use SCWAY age/wt classes at all tournaments. Hopefully, this will standardize competition throughout the section.
