I would like to take a moment and thank anyone who was able to show up last night and show their support for the wrestling team/any student-athlete that is in their class. I would also like to thank anyone who was able to show up anytime throughout the entire season. Your support means the world to these students. HUGE THANK YOU for that!!
Our first match of the night was against South Mountain. Two of the three seniors had matches and were able to display what their dedication to the program has done for them. Great team win for the Owls with the final score of 72-12.
Second match of the night was against Goldwater. The match was intense from start to finish. Ignacio Hernandez got things going for the Owls with a pin. Joseph Laborin wrested a tough match and was able to pull through and win. Jagger Guerena did the same coming away with a victory. Senior Chris Martinez was an absolute stud in his match. Intensity was high and the crowd was loving it. Second Senior Jonathan Ortiz had a tough match, hard fought the entire time. Final Senior, Armando Moya was determined to win his match from the begging. Armando took his opponent to the third period and sunk in a DEEP power half. Settled his hips and was able to stretch his opponents back flat on the mat. Owls lose the team match up in a close one 42-30.
The team is headed off to Ironwood for an individual tournament this weekend and are excited to see how things go.
Thank you for your time and I hope that everyone has a great day!!
