This makes for another undefeated season for Lowell, and we outscored our opponents 289-117. Still, our sights are set on the SF Section championship tournament (AKA “All City”) next Saturday, Feb. 18 at Washington. The team winner of that tournament earns the section title. Lowell will be missing 2-3 weight classes, so the 11-12 Lowell wrestlers competing are really going to have to step it up to bring home the trophy.
The individual weight class winners of All City will advance to unquestionably the toughest state wrestling championship in the country: the CIF State Wrestling Championships in Bakersfield March 3-4.
