The Santa Monica High School boys wrestling team placed third at the Nogales Super Champs Tournament this weekend with two individual champions and four in the top ten of their respective weight classes. The Santa Monica Vikings scored 140 points as a team, nearly 50 percent more points than they had in last week’s Tournament of Champions. Sami Syed and Ben Yura both won individual championships, defeating wrestlers who were ranked top five in the state going into the tournament.
