The Oceanside wrestling team may be few in numbers, but each time the Mariners step on the mat they battle tooth and nail against opponents with many more athletes.

That again was the case on Wednesday, Jan. 3 when the Mariners hosted Mount View of Thorndike and Mount Blue of Farmington/Spruce Mountain of Jay in a midweek tri-meet.
