Dolin Mininni, a Morro Bay High junior, qualified for the state wrestling meet in the 135-pound weight class by placing eighth at the CIF-Southern Section Masters Meet on Saturday in Temecula.
Mininni went 4-1 in his first five bouts, including winning his first bout on Saturday, guaranteeing him a finish in the top nine. He then lost by default in the final two bouts because of an injury. The top nine placers in each weight class advanced to the CIF state championships at Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield.
Morro Bay junior Kent Beecham lost by fall in the 9th place bout at 145, getting pinned by Temecula Valley’s Zack Mitchell in the final 30 seconds after Beecham led 3-0. Pirates senior Jacob Carlson finished 0-2 at the meet at 140.
