The CIF State wrestling championships figured to be a battle between four-time champion Clovis and top-ranked Poway.

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.
