    Who was the quickest Pin in the tournament this year so far

  • Stephen Tirapelle April 26, 2013 at 2:11 pm

    Why aren’t team scores recorded for the top five places at the California state championship?

    • CalGrappler April 26, 2013 at 2:22 pm

      Do you happen to know what the top 5 or top 10 are? If so, I can add them to the site. Thank you very much.

  • Peter Samhammer March 12, 2013 at 6:40 pm

    Poway has 23 top five finishes.

    • CalGrappler March 12, 2013 at 6:59 pm

      Thank you Pete for the correction. I will make that change right away.

      • Peter Samhammer March 12, 2013 at 10:00 pm

        Poway has four Championships and five Runner-up finishes, I don’t think they need freebies from anyone. Clovis also had nine individual placers on their 2011 state championship team.
