LAKE COUNTY – Two young local wrestlers are putting Lake County on the map as they travel to a regional wrestling competition.
Team Punisher Wrestling is proud of Blake Fredrickson, 8 years old and wrestling for three seasons, and Gabriel Freeman, 9 years old and wrestling for his first season, of Clearlake.
This weekend the two youngsters headed to Reno, Nev., for a competition.
This season Blake is 20-0 and Gabriel is 15-4.
The team's coaches are Ronnie Campos Jr. and Daryl Fredrickson, two devoted men who work with more than 30 children in Middletown two to four times a week.
It was not easy for these two young boys to get to their level of competition. They work out every day and practice all the time.
Both boys have taken multiple wins at various places including Ukiah, Middletown, and most recently this Saturday in Grass Valley.
Not only have these two team members have been burning up the mats but the team reports that almost all of the 30 children who participate are doing quite well.
