6:19 p.m. - I will do a live play-by-play from 106 to 152 before I have to head down to the mat to shoot video of the 170 pound finals as Frontier's Trent Tracy seeks state gold.

6:18 p.m. - Follow along tonight for the finals. Just a note. It will start tonight at 106 to make sure Seth Nevills, the Clovis senior at 285, gets the final stage seeking his fourth state title. Would be the second in row to it after his former teammate Justin Mejia accomplished the feat.

Buchanan has already secured the program's third consecutive state championship. According to NorCal reporter Ike Dodson, the Bears (210 points) wrapped up the title over Gilroy (172), Poway (167.5) and Selma (164), "Around noon today."

The battle now is for second place between those three others. 

6:13 p.m. - OK folks, fans starting to file back into Rabobank for the finals that will begin at 7 p.m.

A title tonight for Tracy would be the 33rd for Kern County since the state championships began in 1973 and a first for Frontier.
