We had a few Capo wrestlers place over the weekend: Geoff Mellor placed 2nd and John Badger 3rd at the San Clemente Rotary tournament on the Frosh-soph team, while Juan Hernandez placed 5th, Christian Hauser 4th, and Matt Grovom 7th on varsity while at the ASICS Southern California Challenge.  Good job fellas!

This is Matt’s first tournament placing of the year; he is turning on at the right time!  Zane Coley, one of our JV standouts, also wrestled tough at the varsity tournament.  He garnered two wins, showing great heart by coming from 6 down and pulling off a last second win to make it to the second day.  In addition, Jamey Goddard took great steps of improvement as well; he won four matches, and he had to display some gumption and determination to pull through in a few of them.  Keep taking steps–it’s all about peaking at the right time!

This week’s “Courageous Cougar” is Mike Davis.  This guy showed up to practice this week and outworked just about everyone.  During conditioning, he smoked the whole team, making it look easy.  He is also one of the freshmen that has chosen to double up on practice by going to the Frosh-soph and upper level practices back to back.  Keep up the good work, buddy!

Don’t let the “pretty boy” smile fool you; this kid’s an animal.

Competition-wise, we have some important meets this week.  The Laguna Hills dual is away on Tuesday, and the varsity competes at Five Counties this weekend at Fountain Valley High School.  For those that don’t know, Five Counties is one of the toughest tournaments in the nation, rivalling tournaments like the Ironman and Beast of the East out in the midwest.  Let’s just say that if you place at Five Counties, you are legit.

The lineup for Laguna Hills is as follows (+2 weight allowance):
103: Herrera, Z. Coley, Davis
112: Hauser, Monroy, Villalobos
119: K. Coley, Adam, Merrill
125: Johnston, C. Davis, Mellor
130: Logan, open, Bustamante
135: Grovom, Byrne, Harper
140: Goddard, Acuna, Aragon
145: Ramirez, Hou, Badger
152: Beller, E. Garcia, J. Mendoza
160: Tye, Open, open
171: Fitzpatrick, open, open
189: Hernandez, Farnoudi, open
215: V. Mendoza, Uribe, Open
HWT: Pending (either Cordi or Uribe)
The lineup for Five Counties is the same varsity lineup for Laguna Hills.  All varsity wrestlers will go to Five Counties.  Bus times and start times are on the schedule.
