Women's West Coast Tournament of Champions Returns to Rocklin on Dec. 17-18
Rocklin, CA - On Dec. 17-18 the Women's West Coast Tournament of Champions (WWCTOC) returns to Hardwood Palace in Rocklin for the second consecutive year. Placer Valley Tourism will be teaming up with Sacramento Area Wrestling Association (SAWA) along with the prestigious Cliff Keen Wrestling who signed on this year as the WWCTOC title sponsor for this premier, all-female high school and college wrestling event.
New this year is the open college division as well as a high school showcase with college scouts on-site. The high school competition for both varsity and junior varsity wrestlers will take place on Saturday, Dec. 17 and currently more than 40 teams are scheduled to compete. There will be 14 weight divisions ranging from 101 to 235 pounds.
The high school showcase will also take place on Saturday, providing these female athletes with an incredible opportunity to be seen by college recruiters. Simon Fraser University, Eastern Oregon University, Menlo College, University of the Cumberlands, Grays Harbor College, Warner Pacific College and Southwestern Oregon Community College have all committed to attending.
On Sunday, Dec. 18 the WWCTOC will make history with the open college division as no other female wrestling tournament in the nation hosts both high school and college competitions at the same event. With the exception of University of the Cumberlands, all the colleges mentioned above will have athletes competing. PVT is thrilled to welcome home Lauren Mason, Woodcreek High School alum, who will be competing for her college Simon Fraser University (SFU) that is located in British Columbia, Canada.
Mike Jones, who serves as the head coach for women's wrestling at SFU is looking forward to bringing several of his top wrestlers to the WWCTOC. "Simon Fraser is currently ranked the number one dual meet team in the country and the overall second team in the nation,"explained Jones. "It should be a great match with Menlo College's top athletes and we are very excited to be entered in a new west coast event!"
"Along with Woodcreek Alum Lauren Mason, we have two other Northern Californians, Dominique Parrish from Scotts Valley and Mallory Velte from Christian Brothers in Sacramento who will be competing," added Jones. "The timing is perfect as these girls will be right near home in time for the holidays."
Cliff Keen is providing exclusive singlets for finalists, champions will receive custom backpacks and top placers will be awarded high quality medals. The WWCTOC promises to make history in style. Come down to Hardwood Palace located at 1091 Tinker Road in Rocklin and see these female athletes take it to the mats.
