Defending state champions led the charge into the semifinals for area wrestlers in the regional tournaments that began Friday night.

Darien Cruz and Mike Racciato were among the winners in the quarterfinals Friday night, leading a group of very good wrestlers that are now two wins away from Regional wins.  Liberty's Grimaldi Gonzalez and Parkland's Ethan Lizak were among the high profile winners at the AAA level.
