Clairemont senior is state wrestling champ

Clairemont High’s Stephanie Maldonado learned a valuable lesson in 2016 when she had to battle back through numerous rounds before finishing fourth in the girls state wrestling championships in Visalia:

It’s not good to lose early.

So Maldonado went one better this weekend — she didn’t lose at all.

The Chieftains senior rolled through the heavyweight division, pinning all four of her opponents, including McNair’s Foatino Moala in the title match in 4:33 to claim the section’s lone gold medal.

With the victory, Maldonado improved to 25-1 for the season.
