Yoe freshmen advances to finals in wrestling tournament













Cameron had four wrestlers compete in a College Station tournament this past Saturday.  Yoe freshmen Domanique Borgas highlighted the team’s finish with a trip to the finals and a 2-1 mark overall.  The freshmen picked up wins over opponents from 5A Bryan Rudder and private school Strake Jesuit before falling in the final. 


According to head coach Dale Keen, Borgas has been wrestling for just 60 days in total, but has the talent and variables you look for in a wrestler to be successful.  “Being big and strong is just one part of that,” said Keen.  “You have to know your moves and know how to defend stuff.  Determination helps out a whole lot.”


Keen also pointed out that Borgas’ performance helped inspire other wrestlers to step up their game. 


Ebonique Merrow and Johnvanique Porter picked up one win for the ladies.  Destiny Merrow also competed for Cameron.  


The Yoe wrestlers will be back in action in the junior varsity championships from Arlington on February 3.
