Carson High School had four individual champions crowned and also brought home the team title from the Modoc Invitational wrestling tournament on Saturday in Alturas, Calif.

Ricky Adams (103 pounds), Justin Sarnowski (135), Doug Brooks (140) and Jaxon Luhrs (152) won their respective weight classes for the Senators. Sarnowski pinned four straight opponents and received the tournament's Outstanding Middleweight Wrestler award. Adams, a freshman, also pinned all four of his opponents.

The Senators scored 255 points to win the 18-team tournament. The host-Modoc Braves finished second with 208 points and Mazama (Klamath Falls, Ore.) was third with 168 points.

Three other Senators reached the finals and settled for silver medals: Pat Moore at 112 pounds, freshman Joe Roman (125) and Josh Aguilar (171). Roman won back-to-back overtime matches to reach the finals, where he battled a Modoc wrestler (ranked No. 1 in California's Northern Section) to the wire before losing 7-4.

Justin LaPorte (145) placed third, Sergio Cavillo (119) and Eric Klug (215) both placed fourth and Chris Kotter (160) fifth for the Senators.

Four Carson J.V. wrestlers were place finishers in their weight classes: Alan Wooldridge third at 171 pounds, while Eric Aguilera (103), Paul Carter (140) and Chris Ceccarelli (152) placed fourth.

Carson hosts Sparks and Hug in a three-way Northern 4A meet on Wednesday.
