It's the ultimate goal — other than winning it, of course — of every high school wrestler. But the road to the CIF State Championship Meet is long and bumpy, treacherous and winding. And for most, that road ends with a dead end before reaching that final destination. Irvine High's 103-pounder Nam Tran got there, wrestling Friday in Bakersfield at Rabobank Arena.
