This past weekend, Junior MARISSA RITCHIE of ML King, competed at the tough Inland Empire Girls Season Opener up two weight classes from last season. Her bracket included a 2017 CIF state champion, a runner-up, and two additional state medalists.
Seeded No. 3 at 111-pounds, Ritchie battle her way to the finals by first defeating CIF state runner-up Sugey Ceja of Corona, 9-4 in the semifinal round, before facing off against state champion Angie Gomez of Northview.
In the finals, Ritchie put the state on alert as who could be the top wrestler this season at 111lbs as she defeated Gomez 8-3. Due to her outstanding performance at the tournament, Ritchie is this week’s TCW wrestler of the week. Congrats to Marissa on a dominating performance!
