Hillmen wrestling 5th at Natomas tournamentBy: Journal sports staff
The Placer High wrestling team finished a respectable fifth Saturday at the No Guts No Glory 30-team tournament at Natomas High.
The Hillmen were led by Josh Mason (126 pounds, sixth place) Gama Gomez (132 , fourth), Mason Lenover (160, third) and Will Thornton (182, third).
Gomez finished the last 90 seconds of his semifinal match with a severe ankle injury to make it to the third/fourth-place match, but had to forfeit that contest due to the injury.
The varsity Hillmen return to the mat on Jan. 5 at the Mat Classic hosted by Granada High. The JV team heads to the Vista del Lago Tournament, also on Jan. 5.
