By Raider Reporters. Shockwaves of excitement rippled through the River City athletic community as a sophomore wrestler faced down some tough competition and came out on top.

Michelle Kamyshin took 1st place in the 150 weight class of the Girls Wrestling Northern Regional Meet that took place on Feb. 2nd and 3rd at Natomas High School.

 

What made her run to 1st place so impressive was that as a 5th seeded wrestler she defeated the 4th, 1st and 2nd seeded competitors to take the championship.

“I was the underdog,” said Kamyshin, “who stepped up and made those around me proud.”

The title qualifies her to compete in the San-Joaquin Section Masters Tournament on Feb. 16th and 17th at McNair High School in Stockton. Top finishers at Masters then qualify for the State Championships in Visalia.   

Regardless of the meets ahead and her future success, Kamyshin has found a passion in wrestling and being a part of the RCHS team.

“Wrestling has changed me. This sport has helped me more than anyone can imagine. I don’t know where I would be without it.”
