Welcome to our fundraiser for Richie "The Rhino" Sandoval.
Richie is a high achieving student-athlete with a bright future. While Richie excels on the wrestling mat, he is an equally motivated and hard working student. Those who know him compliment his focus, dedication and hard work.
Richie had an oustanding first season of high school wrestling and hasn't lost any momentum transitioning into the Freestyle and Greco-Roman seasons. Richie placed 1st at CA-USA Folkstyle State, 2nd at CA-USA Freestyle State and 1st at CA-USA Greco-Roman State.
Richie's state placings qualify him for National Championships in Fargo, ND July 14-22. Last year Richie attended this tourament as an 8th grader and came within one round of placing. Since then Richie has put a tremendous amount of work into his wrestling and is excited to go back as a more mature and fine-tuned athlete.
While Richie is working to find odd jobs to earn money, we are hoping his friends, family and community will contribute to help offset the associated expenses. We are confident that ANYONE who knows Richie knows he is not only an inspired athlete but an excellent mentor and role model to younger athletes. Through coaching our kids team and refereeing local tournaments Richie has developed a close connection with many of the younger upcoming athletes in our league and community. We appreciate his effort to give back to the sport of wrestling and hope that you will consider supporting his journey.
