Looking at 246-pound wrestler Corey Farkas, one would think he just muscles opponents to the mat. But Farkas says it's technique rather than strength that earned him titles in Greco-Roman and freestyle two weeks ago at the Cadet National tournament in Battle Creek, Mich. He is only the fourth California wrestler to win both at the tournament. Farkas will try to win another Greco title at the Junior Nationals in Cedar Falls, Iowa, Monday through Wednesday.

The CIF State wrestling championships figured to be a battle between four-time champion Clovis and top-ranked Poway. In the early-round matches Friday at the University of the Pacific's Spanos Center, Clovis lived up to its billing. But Poway slipped, and Valhalla fared better than expected. Clovis, winner of State titles in 1974, 1975, 1976 and 1990, led Valhalla, 53 1/2-46. Poway was third with 35 points. Clovis and Valhalla each qualified three wrestlers for today's semifinals.

All that was missing from the introductions of the finalists at the Five Counties Wrestling Tournament Saturday night were fireworks and laser beams. Inside the darkened Fountain Valley High School gymnasium, a bright spotlight shone on the wrestlers as they paraded through a smoke-filled doorway to be greeted by a cheering packed house.

Clovis High won its second consecutive CIF state wrestling championship by the barest of margins Saturday night at the University of the Pacific's Spanos Center. Clovis defeated Valhalla, 88 1/2 to 87, in front of a sellout crowd of 6,000. Expected to challenge for the title, top-ranked Poway finished third with 71 points. It was the fifth title for Clovis since the state meet was first held in 1973. No other school has won more than three.

One coach was pleased with his team's performance at the Masters Wrestling tournament Saturday at Mira Mesa High Saturday. The other coach had hoped for better. At the start of the season, with only three wrestlers returning to his lineup, Poway Coach Wayne Branstetter thought this would be a rebuilding year. So advancing just four to Masters finals made Branstetter happy. The Titans crowned three champions and will take seven to the state tournament Friday and Saturday in Stockton.

Poway High School continues to look like a favorite when it goes to the State Wrestling Championships, and the Titans continue to be disappointed. Second isn't bad, but it's not first, which is the position Poway has looked to reclaim since it won its only title in 1986. Since then, Poway has finished seventh, fourth, third three times, and second.
