Alondra, Ivy, Cynthia, Theresa, Jenelle, Jane


Lowell sent six girl wrestlers to the Queen of the Mat girls wrestling tournament at Pittsburg HS on Jan. 7. This was a sizable tournament with 31 teams from mostly North Coast and Central Coast Section schools and a good performance barometer for our girls as they prepare for the CCS state championships qualifier on Feb. 3.
