The Cougars are off to a great start in 2013.  Here are the results of the first two weeks:

Dual Vs El Toro:

FS 39-3 win; JV 48-24 win; var 58-6 win

Capo started the season with a bang, defeating El Toro easily on all three levels.  Here is sophomore Cameron Kobel’s win via pin:

The varsity and JV competed in the Trabuco Duals Fri and Sat Dec 6-7.  Brandon Hernandez and Phillip O’shea went undefeated on the weekend, 7-0.  O’shea won all his matches by fall, 6 of which were in the first period.  This included setting a new school fastest fall record with a 7 second pin vs El Toro.

The FS team, meanwhile, spent Saturday at the Western Duals tournament.  They finished in second place overall, falling in the final dual by a narrow 30-32 margin.  Several Capo wrestlers came in first or second place.

The next dual was vs Dana Hills on Tuesday Dec 10.  Capo fought hard and had an 8 point lead going into their two open weights (220 and hwt), but fell 28-32 after the 2 upper weight forfeits.  Landon Hume avenged an earlier loss, and Noah Husband got an exciting pin at 106.  Corey Shackelford won a battle in quadruple overtime.

Here is Husband’s pin:


and Hume’s win:

Thursday Dec 12 the novice team competed in San Clemente’s 4-way dual meet, and came home with first place.  Six Capo wrestlers won first place.

Saturday Dec 14 was Capo’s own jv and fs tournament.  20 jv and 20 fs teams–a very competitive field with teams like Laguna Hills, Poway, Vista, and Santa Ana–came to Capo to duke it out.  Juan Pedraza finished in first place, while Juan De La Torre, Marshall Ferraro, Michael Souri, and AJ Martinez finished in third place.

Things are looking up.  This week we dual Newport Harbor at home, and the varsity will compete at the prestigious Mann Classic Friday and Saturday.
