Megan Garcia placed 6th this weekend at the North Coast Sectionals after entering the competition seeded 8th. Megan won her first match by pin and was able to pick up two more wins on Saturday.
Megan was the first South Fork High School wrestler to medal at NCS since Gabe Miclette.
Megan is a senior and has done surprisingly well for a wrestler in her first year in the sport. "She made a big statement this being her first year wrestling." Coach Rusty Pricer said, "She made weight, wrestled with heart, it was great!"
The Cubs will compete in the county finals next weekend in Arcata.
