Local wrestlers knocked out of CIF state championships


There will be no second day of competition for Gunn's Ian Cramer and Stephen Martin or Palo Alto's Josh Deckelman at the CIF State Boys Wrestling Championships in Bakersfield as all three were eliminated on Friday during the first day at Rabobank Arena.

Cramer, who finished second at the Central Coast Section finals at 132 pounds, was pinned by Miguel Flores of San Ysidro in the second round Friday. Cramer bounced back by pinning Ryan Barera of Barstow in just 59 seconds and moved on in the consolation round with a 10-3 decision over Bobby Ehman of Vacaville.

Finally, though, Cramer was eliminated by Joshy Cortez of Temecula Valley, 6-5.

At 152 pounds, Deckelman was pinned in the first round by PJ Klee of Cardinal Newman in 2:20. In the consolation bracket, Deckelman was pinned by Izzac Suarez of Dos Palos in 3:40 and eliminated.

Martin, who also was second at CCS at 182 pounds, received an opening bye like Cramer. In the second round he was pinned in just 29 seconds by Corey Griego of Sultana. Griego pinned all four of his opponents on Friday.

Martin dropped into the consolation bracket, where he posted a 10-6 decision over Will Thornton of Placer. Next up, however, was CCS champ Mark Penyacsek of Gilroy and just like in the section finals, Penyacsek defeated Martin -- this time with a 7-2 decision.

Martin finished his final season with a 24-5 overall record while Cramer ended his campaign at 29-6.
