Liberty Ranch wrestler Itzel Medina

Liberty Ranch wrestler Itzel Medina, second from right, finished fourth at the Women’s West Coast Tournament of Champions on Dec. 21.

Itzel Medina wrestled to one of the top finishes at last weekend’s West Coast Tournament of Champions when she placed fourth out of 34 wrestlers at the women’s wrestling competition.

“She’s a beast, (it’s) one of the toughest girls tournaments on the West Coast,” said Liberty Ranch coach Brian Robinson on Dec. 22 of the Liberty Ranch wrestler, who is now 13-4.

The Hawks’ next tournament is Queen of the Mat on Jan. 28 at Pittsburgh High School at 9 a.m.

Liberty Ranch will then move on to compete in Vista del Lago’s tournament for JV and female wrestlers Jan. 4.
