Sierra/Sequoia Division wrestling results

BY ZACH EWING Californian staff writer zewing@bakersfield.com

I've been tied up here in Madera all weekend, obviously, with the Yosemite Divisional, but the small schools held their own battle in Shafter. And what a battle it turned out to be on the team side of things. Selma's Joey Alvarez beat Wasco's Garret Johnson in an overtime heavyweight final to decide the team title, 221-215 in favor of the Bears. Johnson had the lead, our correspondent Steve Lynch reports, with seven seconds left in regulation when he was hit with a stalling call for the second time, tying the match.

To that point, both Selma and Wasco had won all four of their finals. State No. 1 Sean Medley of Wasco took care of business, as did most of the other favorites. Here are the results of the championship and third-place matches.
