Coming off last Friday’s 59-24 section opening win over Mission, Lowell sent four wrestlers to the Clayton Valley Invitational in Concord on Saturday, Jan. 10.

This was the toughest varsity tournament we have competed in this season. 29 mostly North Coast Section schools competed with most weight classes having state-ranked wrestlers.

Chris O’Neill (sophomore), took third place at 106 lbs. This Chris’ second varsity tournament ever. He dropped his first match in a close 4-6 decision to the eventual tournament champion. Chris went on to win his next four matches all by pin including a 29-second pin in the consolation championship match to take 3rd place.

Next up will be an away dual meet at Balboa on Tuesday, Jan. 13.
