Both wrestlers wrestled their way to a top 5 Finish in the CIF Championships this past weekend. Malik, who has a 34-8 record placed 4th for the second year in a row in a very competitive weight class and is currently ranked #9 in the southern section and looks to qualify for state. Alex Tang has a 38-5 record on the season and becomes just the third wrestler in Mustang history to win a CIF Title.
