First match of the season is under our belts. We tied El Toro 36-36 in a hard fought battle. Started off strong but ET fought back. Props go to Jose Sarabia, Geoff Mellor, John Badger, Mike Logan, and Phillip O’Shea for pinning their opponents. Aaron Geria got his first Varsity win!

Congratulations to Aaron Geria on his first Varsity win! Way to hang in there!!

A HUGE congratulations goes out to five CV wrestlers for getting PERFECT ATTENDANCE for spring semester: Geoff Mellor, Ian Brault, Michael Logan, Aaron Geria, and Jake Peets.  These fellas were here every minute of every spring practice from March to June 8.

As a reward, they get perfect attendance trophies this week.  Awesome job, fellas, keep up the good work!

In other news, the following wrestlers have amassed 80 merit points in spring and have thus earned their way onto the 2012-13 promotional poster: Ian Brault, Phillip O’shea, Michael Davis, Jason Garcia, Jonny Gutierrez, Michael Logan, and Jake Peets.  They have earned their way onto the poster through wrestling in spring tournaments and scrimmages, going to club practices, having 90% or greater attendance at spring practices, and having a 3.75 GPA or above for spring.  There are plenty more opportunities to earn points in the summer! 

Perfect attendance, spring 2012: Geoff Mellor, Ian Brault, Mike Logan, Aaron Geria, and Jake Peets

We had our “Big Kat” wrestling tournament this past Saturday, and I’m pleased to say that a good time was had by all.  It was awesome to see the Capo wrestling community come together like that to put on the show.  Good competition and fun times, can’t beat it.  A HUGE thanks goes out to all who chipped in to help; it takes a *lot* of hands to put on a show like that, so your help is, as always, much appreciated.  We received several compliments on the day, so credit goes out to each one of you.

It was also good to see the alums out!  For example, Spencer Charles, 2010 league champion for Capo, as well as Marlon Lopez, 2010 alum, laced up the shoes again and showed the crowd that they still “have it.”  Many of the seniors, like Shane Johnston, Kyle Coley, and Christian Hauser, likewise jumped in the ring.  There was even a “grudge match” between the bros. Coley!  While big brother Kyle ended up on top eventually, the victory didn’t come without a battle; Zane sure did give Kyle all he could handle, and at one point almost had the big bro pinned!  Zane is crafty like that, Kyle, gotta watch out. 🙂  All in all, looks like Zane gained some respect from big brother.

This one was bigger than Taylor vs. Dake…

Jake Peets won first place in his division.  Good job, Jake!  You are starting to come around…don’t stop now and rest on your laurels!

There are quite a few younguns’ that are working very hard in the offseason to improve their skills.  They are up and comers, and its only a matter of time before they make their mark.  Each one of these guys deserves a pat on the back.

First, Aaron Geria has been consistently coming to our evening practices on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  He’s got the eye.  He’s been learning lots of new technique there and has been applying them in live, scrimmages, and tournaments.

Second, Landon Hume has recently showed much promise.  He has the physical build that makes for a good wrestler.  Just give him time.  He looked good during our tournament.  Good on ya, buddy!

Third, Ian continues to make his presence felt in pretty much every good way.  He gets in a ton of matches just about every weekend, wrestles in two clubs, consistently works hard in practice, and is a GREAT helping hand.  He was one of the many who helped out at every step along the way last week: at Newhart, for open house, set up Friday, and all day Saturday.  He didnt’ stop until the job was done!  The whole Brault family has been such a big help.
