Getting in offseason matches was one of the methods Lehigh's John Trenge used to improve his wrestling. He ended up becoming a 3x D1 All-American.

A grand total of thirteen Capo wrestlers competed this weekend in various competitions, and last week, three competed. Doing that consistently will be one of the big keys to both your success as an individual wrestler, and our success as a team.

Last week, Kyle Coley, Zane Coley, and Jason Garcia (who just joined us three weeks ago…and he’s already gettin after it!) wrestled at El Dorado, and this weekend, twelve wrestled at Newport Harbor, while Christian Hauser got some freestyle experience at Esperanza in preparation for Freestyle State.

Juan Hernandez finished first in his division, defeating a state qualifier and pinning a master’s qualifier in the process. Shane Johnston, and Jon Badger placed first, Ruseel Fitzpatrick, Geoff Mellor, Max Adam placed second, and Michael Logan and Emanuel Villalobos placed third. Also competing this weekend were Jobe Bustamante, Ryan Jeffrey, Jason Garcia, and Ben Sheppard.

The competition this weekend was very encouraging, for I saw improvement from everyone, no matter if they won or lost. That’s the ticket–taking baby steps consistently.

This weekend there is an SCWAY tournament at East LA City College. Though it is not a whole team event, you are encouraged to go. Remember: 50 matches gets you a spot on the promo poster!
