The Sierra College wrestling team claimed the Big 8 Conference title last week with a big win over Sacramento City College. The Wolverines took care of Sac City by a final score of 23 –17, but that doesn’t tell the story of the match. The Sierra wrestlers pushed the action and dominated most of the matches all night. Brandon Benvenuti (125 pounds), Norman Richmond (133), Mike Vassar (149), Vlad Dombroysky (157), Nick Gill (174) and Jesus Chavez (184) were all very strong on the mats for Sierra. The Wolverines were back in action at The Cowboy Open in Wyoming to face several Division 1, Division 2 and NAIA teams from around the country.
