The 2013-14 Wrestling Season is off to a good start. With all the Takedown events and the Kickoff behind us, we’re ready to start the season in earnest.
Our own Joe Rios Kickoff was again a monster event!! with 475 registered wrestlers limited two 6 mats in the main gym at Chico High meant a REALLY long day for everyone. Our thanks go to all who helped make this another successful Gator event!
Mid December, at the new Bidwell Shootout, a Team Dual event, our Varsity wrestlers pulled off a team Bronze despite vacancies across the weight classes because of illness. Actually, we tied for second place, but Chester had outscored us so we settled for third. There
were a few stellar performances. Austin Moreno got four first round pins and snagged Outstanding Middleweight honors. Zach Soto went 4-0 against some tough competition despite feeling under the weather. Mason Sasselli wrestled some of his best wrestling ever! A Gator Good Day!
Our Elementary/JV headed to Oroville’s Wildcat Classic the following weekend. Ethan Jones, Ricardo Velazquez and Riley Roullett captured gold and Riley was named Outstanding Wrestler in his division.
Across the valley at the Westside Invitational our Varsity put together enough points for a Team Second Place!
