MMC wrestling squares off today

The Modesto Metro Conference wrestling tournament is today at Downey, with the finals expected to start about 2 p.m. Beyer 130-pounder Oliver Congleton is shooting for his third MMC title, but will likely have to beat Downey's Matt Galton to get it.

Galton is ranked No. 3 in the Sac-Joaquin Section and Congleton is No. 4. Another featured weight is 189, with two defending champs wrestling. Davis' Jacob Hill won the 171-pound title last year, and Downey's Paul Snoderly is back to defend his crown at 189 pounds. For more, read meet director Tony Ippolito's preview at
