Candice Corralejo, a seventh-grader at Colfax Elementary School, completed a standout wrestling campaign by finishing second in the junior high girls division at last weekend's California State Middle School Championships held in Vallejo.
Competing for the Colfax Thrashers wrestling club and against wrestlers from as far away as Louisiana and Hawaii, Corralejo posted a 4-1 record.
She advanced to the finals by turning back Samantha Doellette of Springstown, La. in the quarter-finals and Georgia Brown of Elk Grove in semi-finals before falling to Claire Payne of Pomilta (Ukiah), 3-0, in the finals.
