Alhambra High School junior Trinity Oredina (right) is this week’s Tribune Athlete of the Week, sponsored by Matthew C Rinn of State Farm.
Oredina came in second place in the girls North Coast Section Wrestling tournament in her weight class (106 pounds).
The junior came into the competition at Albany High School with a 17-3 overall record. Those efforts this season earned her a first-round bye in the NCS tournament.
When she did get into action, the Bulldog wrestler made an impressive start to her day.
Oredina beat her first opponent, Arine Kim, from Campolindo-Moraga in a major decision scored 18-10 to move on to the next round.
Oredina then defeated Alisha Narvaez of Arroyo-San Lorenzo, this time in a much tighter 7-3 decision.
In her next bout she took on Claire Payne of Ukiah, which she won via pin for the first time on the afternoon. Her pin came with 4:08.
In the final, Oredina’s run was stopped by An Vo of James Logan-Union City. The champion, Vo, is a senior who went 31-4 on the season.
Honorable mention goes to Hayley Ward, who came in fourth place in the heavyweight division. Both of her losses in the tournament came to Ukiah’s Kylee Winzler.
