In our fifth section dual of the season, we squared off with Washington tonight in the Lowell gym. We won the dual by a score of 45-11 and advanced our section record to 5-0.

Washington had a relatively sparse line-up due to injuries and such, but they did give us six matches with Lowell winning four of those six.

Getting wins for Lowell were:

108lbs – Chris O’Neill (senior), pin 2:48
115lbs – Giovani Thai (sophomore), 5-1 decision
122lbs – Marco Kwan (senior), pin 3:00
197lbs – Bryant Nguyen (senior), pin 3:32

We have just one more dual left next Wednesday at Lowell against Mission. We have trained to be undefeated in team duals and are one win away from that. However, what matters far more is winning the SF Section tournament championship (aka All City) on Saturday, Feb. 18, and in the process, have at least five tournament champions to qualify for the CIF State Championships in Bakersfield March 3-4.

Our girls will be traveling to Oak Grove HS in San Jose this Friday to compete in the CCS championships. There, they will be competing against 75 CCS schools from Daly City to King City to earn a berth in the CIF Girls State Championships in Visalia Feb. 24-25.
