Inside Los Banos High's gymnasium, athletes from more than 20 regional programs grappled and grunted on the mat as they competed Saturday, Dec. 21, in the fourth Morning Star Invitational.

Led by junior Daniel Cota, who picked up first-place honors in the 132-pound division, the Patterson High wrestling team shined at the event, capturing six individual medals en route to a fourth-place team finish at the 21 school tournament.

Patterson senior Manuel Cruz, meanwhile, battled to collect a solid second-place finish in the 138-pound class. Sophomore Sean D'Ocampo (113 pounds) and senior Jordan Canseco (126) each took home fourth-place honors.

Adrian Luna, a freshman 106-pounder, came away with a fifth-place nod, while senior Brad Gill (170) garnered a sixth-place victory for the Tigers.

The Western Athletic Conference dual season continues at 6 p.m. Jan. 2 as Patterson hosts three-time defending league champion Los Banos High.
