Placer made the long trek to Atwater (by Merced) for the DIII division championships. With teams like Oakdale, Vista Del Lago, El Capitan and Patterson, it figured to be a test for the Hillmen to see if they  could make it to the next level. Logan Moon, AJ Ferreira, Chance Clements, Justus Haskin, Bryce Cook, River Rogers, and Joe Valdez all made it to day two.  Valdez did not disappoint with a stellar performance against top section ranked Martinez from Oakdale. Losing a close match in the last seconds, Valdez went on to take third with a dominant performance over Vista Del Lago. AJ Ferreira and Bryce Cook both took fourth. Cook had to wrestle his nemesis from Ponderosa in the "blood round" to see who would go on and who would go home. Cook had lost by a large margin just a week ago, but was undaunted and won, punching his ticket to the next level. AJ Ferreira and Logan (Asteroid) Moon both decided the best way to get to the next level was to toss their opponents to their backs and pin them. Asteroid finished 6th to round out the roster of Hillmen wrestlers making it to Masters. River Rogers notched two tough victories to secure 9th place. Check out their shiny blond hair next time you see them!

Proud to be a Hillman!!
