Foster High senior Nwankwo Nwankwo had a tremendous weekend at the State UIL Wrestling Tournament, finishing second in the 5A Division at 285 lbs.

And yet, he can’t claim bragging rights in his own home.

Little sister Nkechinyere (ChiChi) Nwankwo, a junior, wrestled her way to the Gold Medal for the 5A Division at 215 lbs.

Jeffery Rayome is the wrestling coach at Foster.

George Ranch High School also had a wrestler make the podium, with junior Diana Luong taking 5th at 138 lbs. James Kirby is the wrestling coach at George Ranch. He was named the Wrestling Coach of the Year for District 12-5A. Kent Jones, also at George Ranch, was the Region 3 Assistant Coach of the Year.
