2023 CCCAA State Dual Team Championship
California Community College Wrestling
Hosted by Fresno City College, Fresno, California USA

A college dual consists of 10 matches and, more often than not, the final few matches are decisive. As the Mounties of Mt. SAC and the Rams of Fresno City prepared to square off, both coaches were focused instead on the first two battles of the 3C2A State Dual Team Championship.

Head Coach David Rivera of #1 ranked Mount San Antoinio College focused on the early battles, “We need to score big points, get a couple of early pins and build a lead.” Across the mat, Head Coach Paul Keysaw of #2 ranked Fresno City College was looking for upsets, “We need some men to step up and win matches they are not expected to. The first two matches will set the tone for the other eight.”

Mt. SAC struck early as #2 Adrian Limon was able to pin #4 Tallon Chambers at the close of the 2nd period of the 125 lbs match. In a pivotal match at 133, #1 ranked (at 125), Chris Calderon (MSAC) moved up to wrestle #1 Adrian Chavez (Fresno). Both athletes displayed their brilliant skills with Calderon outlasting Chavez 16-11. At 141, #1 ranked Zachary Parker (MSAC) defeated #2 Matthew Terrence (FCC), by technical fall 20-4. Mt. SAC had built a comfortable lead and would cruise to a 31-14 win.
