While Phillip dropped a tough 3-1 decision in the finals, this is not the last time he’ll face the Woodbridge wrestler.  He will have a chance for revenge, and knowing Phillip, this will focus him and he’ll come back firing on all 8 cylinders.

Geoff Mellor and Corey Shackelford both performed well too, making it to the “blood round” before dropping.  Along the way, Geoff defeated the ultimate 3rd place finisher from Trabuco Hills.

A few jv wrestlers got some good experience.  Even in the losses, we are seeing improvement and guys are taking steps forward.

We are back in action tonight vs Laguna Hills, #2 in Orange County.  Phillip has the chance to edge closer to Mike Phillips’ career pin record, which has stood since 1988.  Saturday a select squad of varsity wrestlers will compete at Esperanza, while the jv and fs teams are at the San Clemente Rotary tournament.

Former Capo Wrestler and 2x state champion Mike Phillips stopped by the room this week to motivate and show some technique.  Click on the video for a peek:
