Coastal Academy High School (CAH) sophomore Charis Tolentino placed second in the girls' 103-pound weight class at the San Diego Section Masters Tournament in mid-February at Mission Hills High School. With more than 3000 fans, the tournament housed the Masters' qualifiers for both girls and boys for the first time together. Tolentino was injured earlier in the season and didn’t think that she would be able to compete. “I was so grateful that I could even make it to Masters. Not only was I able to compete, but I placed!” she stated, “Having done so well as a sophomore, I'm excited to see what the next year holds.”
This is the first time CAH has had a representative at the prestigious CIF State Championship. Girls’ Wrestling is the fastest-growing high school sport in the state, and Tolentino will wrestle the cream of the crop. CIF State Championships will be held at Mechanics Bank Arena in Bakersfield February 23-25, 2023.
