Arroyo Grande High's Uc qualifies for state wrestling tournament

Arroyo Grande High junior Raul Uc took ninth place Saturday at the CIF-Southern Section Master’s Meet, qualifying for the state tournament beginning Friday in Bakersfield.

Uc went 4-2 at the meet. He defeated Rim of the World’s Seth Whisner in the ninth-place match, scoring a 14-2 major decision.

“It was a good way to finish, he had his opponent on his back on two occasions on two different occasions but just ran out of time,” Eagles head coach Kurt Eichperger said. “He had a phenomenal tournament and it is fantastic that he’s qualifying for state as a junior.”
