Clovis Wrestling Led by "A Chihuahua and A Bear"

The Clovis high school wrestling team is on the verge of something unprecedented in California - a four-peat. They're the top ranked team in the state, the third ranked team in the entire country, and they're led by bookends Nick Nevills and Justin Mejia.

Nevills is a two-time individual state champion, the top ranked heavyweight in the country. Nicknamed "The Franchise," the senior will join the top college team in the country in the Fall, Penn State.{}

Meanwhile Mejia is the 106 lb freshman who already has his eyes on accomplishing the one thing Nevills didn't - four straight individual titles. He's currently 5th ranked in the country at 106 lbs.

Cougars associate head coach Ben Holscher says Nevills and Mejia separate themselves amongst a dominant team by their will to win and the passion they have for the sport. He says if you show up to a practice early, you'll likely see the two "play wrestling," and describes the scene as "a little chihuahua taking on a bear."
