Lowell Wrestling faced Galileo tonight at Lowell in our final section dual meet of the regular season.
It was a also a battle of two 8-0 teams. There can be only one winner though, and we made sure that was us. We have now completed our regular season with a record of 9-0 and a point differential of 376-110 over section opponents.
There were eight contested matches with Lowell winning five of them (four by pin). In matches actually wrestled, Lowell outscored Galileo 28-14.
Asa Jungreis (senior/team captain – 132 lbs) won his match by pin in 59 seconds. Herman Zeng (senior – 138 lbs) pinned his opponent in 1:34. Next up was sophomore, Sanchez O’Leary (145 lbs) who had an opponent, but Galileo decided to intentionally forfeit the match. Kian Mojabi (junior – 152 lbs) won his match by 9-1 major decision. First-year senior Kevin Nguyen and Marco Kwan (junior – 120 lbs) both won by 3rd period pins.
We now head into our state championship qualifiers with the girls heading to San Jose this Friday to compete in the Central Coast Championships where the top three placers in each weight class go to the state championships in Visalia on February 26. The boys will compete at the SF Section Wrestling Championships (aka “All City”) at Lincoln HS this Saturday where the champion in each weight class will go to the boys state championships in Bakersfield on March 4.
The highest team score at All City will be crowned the SF Section champion. We have been training hard for five and a half months for this very moment: the post-season.
