Our JV and Elementary wrestlers participated in the Oroville Rattlers Invitational last weekend. It was a beautiful, sunny day and our Gators did GOOD! We weighed in early and then many of us headed over to Cornocopia for some Gator Food! Our boys had fun but not TOO much fun! We ran back over to Oroville High and got started. Diego Soza, Nathan Harris, Xavier Gower, Xavier Smith and David Rudkin all took first place. Zachariah Zwinger, Ethan Jones, Liam Hanford, Sam Zwinger, Adam Jones and Reed Thomas placed second, and Ricardo Velazquez, Gilbert Tiffee, Bobby McCoy, Zach Soto, Trevor Herrmann and Trenten Hefner came in third.
Adam Jones and David Rudkin had an epic battle for gold at 50 lbs. It was the match of the day for sure; tied at 11 at the end of three it went to overtime. David got the takedown, but it was awesome!
Orangevale Invitational – some of our more experienced wrestlers participated in the Orangevale Invitational TOC Qualifier in Sac. Joseph Bitker took first and Riley Roulette placed third. Alex Vasquez and Gabe Deselagne placed fourth.
