4th pl. – Sasha Gonzalez (junior), 115lbs

This was our final regular season CIF varsity tournament. We had an aggressive practice and tournament schedule this season of eight varsity tournaments; four JV tournaments; and two girls tournaments. Maximum real-world match experience outside the SF section is necessary to prepare us to compete at a state level.
Next up for us will be an away meet at Washington this Wednesday followed by our final season dual at home against Galileo on Wed., Feb. 19. Our SF Section championships will be Sat., Feb. 22 at Lincoln HS. The section champion for each weight class advances to the CIF State Championships in Bakersfield March 7-8…the toughest state wrestling championships in the country.
