    BVARSITY ALL-AREA: BHS' Martin caps off high school career with top honor

    BY STEPHEN LYNCH Special to The Californian

    It took a little bit of time for Bryce Martin to get over the disappointment of narrowly missing out on his dream of winning a state championship. But now that the Bakersfield High senior has had some time to reflect on the end of his stellar high school wrestling career, he realizes how special it was just to make the state finals.

    Martin, the BVarsity Wrestler of the Year, was the only local grappler to reach the gold-medal round of the CIF State Championships this year.

    He finished the year with an impressive 39-2 record. Both of his losses, including a 12-6 setback in the 170-pound state final, came at the hands Anthony Valencia of Bellflower-St John Bosco, one of the nation's best high school wrestlers.
