It's a new season, but little has changed on the wrestling mats across Orange County. Familiar teams and familiar names once again are the class of county wrestling. Canyon High School, the 2-time Southern Section 4-A champion, once again appears to be unbeatable. The Comanches have won 3 Southern Section championships in the 1980s, are top-ranked in the county this season and are almost a cinch to win their ninth league championship in a row.

In wrestling, a sport teeming with committed athletes, Canyon High School Coach Gary Bowden says Zach Cooper stands out. "He's so far above the average wrestler in his work ethic," Bowden said. "He's so conscientious. He knows what he has to do to win and he does it." Saturday, he did it again. Cooper, The Times' Athlete of the Week, won his second consecutive state championship by defeating Brad Bell of Clovis West, 11-4, in the 191-pound final at the University of the Pacific in Stockton.

Canyon High School's Zach Cooper and El Dorado's Brian Tomazic met in the 191-pound final of the Southern Section 4-A championships at Edison High. Six minutes later, each of them walked off the mat part winner, part loser. By the time Cooper and Tomazic stepped on the mat, El Dorado held a 128-122 lead in the team standings. Only a pin by Cooper, ranked No. 1 in the state at his weight, would give Canyon the necessary six points to tie El Dorado. Cooper won the match, but he didn't pin Tomazic.

Because the Masters wrestling tournament is a simple means to an end--the state championships--Katella High School's Chris Mollkoy couldn't have been happier after winning his second match Saturday. When Mollkoy, a 154-pounder, defeated San Luis Obispo's Buck Hanson, 10-2, he knew he guaranteed himself a spot next Friday and Saturday at Stockton.

Esperanza wrestling Coach Chuck Bishop has mixed emotions when his wrestlers leave for instructional camps every summer. Each spring, Bishop hands out packets of information and applications about summer camps to his team. But Bishop said his wrestlers are making a risky investment when they pay fees ranging from $20-$30 for a one-day camp to $365 for larger camps, such as the one run by former Olympian Dan Gable at the University of Iowa.
