Girls Wrestling: Ouyang wins CCS title, Lowell, Lincoln and SFI athletes head to state

By Jeremy Balan

Lowell High School’s Ivy Ouyang won the Central Coast Section girls wrestling title in the 146-pound weight class on Saturday at Oak Grove High School in San Jose.

The win also punches Ouyang’s ticket to the CIF State Championships in Lemoore on Feb. 24 and 25.

The Cardinals finished seventh out of 47 schools that entered the CCS championships, but plenty more City athletes made waves in the tournament.

San Francisco International’s Marlyn Martinez, in her first year of participating in high school athletics, qualified for the state championship with a fourth-place finish at 235 pounds and is the first athlete in school history to qualify for a state event.

Lincoln’s Engie Mendoza also qualified for the state championship tournament with a fourth-place finish at 146 pounds and Lowell’s Alondra Barajas qualified with a fourth-place finish at 132 pounds.
