Two more Folsom Winter Sports round out the week with big performances at the Wrestling Playoffs.
The Girls Wrestling team, saw Desinee Lopez (sophomore) competing at the State Championships in Visalia on Friday, February 23 and Saturday, February 24, 2018. Desinee finished in 6th place in her weight class. What a huge accomplishment for a sophomore! She is one of the top six wrestlers in the entire state of California.
Desinee also received a very respectful award as the recipient of the “Pursuing Victory with Honor” award which is voted on by all of the offiials. They felt that she showed great sportsmanship and she worked hard in EVERY match.
Folsom is sooooo… proud of you Desinee!
