Popeye wrestler Wayne Newman went undefeated over the weekend, hauling in seven wins and two championship titles at the Tri-Valley Wrestling Club’s Freestyle and Greco competitions. Newman placed first in both tournaments in the Novice 84-80-pound weight class. Six of his seven wins were by fall.
Popeye sent a total of 18 young wrestlers to Palmer to compete in the Tri-Valley tournaments. The Popeye brought home 14 medals from the two tournaments.
