Molina ready for another Mat Classic trip

December 21, 2011

Deer Park’s Jesse Molina has seen both sides of the Mat Classic and he doesn’t need to be reminded on which one he likes best.
The 132-pound junior earned a berth to the state wrestling championship in his freshman season, but was forced to watch last year’s proceedings as a spectator after not getting past the regional round.
“It takes a lot of work to get there (the Mat Classic),” Molina said.
A wrestler since his grade school days, Molina is prepared to get a closer look at the Tacoma Dome than last year view as a spectator.
