A HUGE congrats goes out to senior Phillip O’shea for dominating the “5 Counties” tournament over the weekend.  Phillip finished in first, with 4 falls and one decision.  After a 4-3 semi-finals upset over Villa Park’s Josh Rus (who defeated O’shea last year at Master’s), Phillip ended with a bang by securing a second period pin in the finals over Damien’s Ian Gust.

A little background about “5 Counties:” it is known as one of the toughest tournaments in the state, if not the nation.  This year there were 94 teams present, 860 wrestlers total.  Many wrestlers from outside the OC came to battle…there were even some out-of-state teams.

You can see Phillip get his finals pin here:

Recently we hosted a youth clinic on Friday Nov 2 for novice wrestlers.  All the kids had fun, and got a lot of good, individual attention from the many coaches and counselors in attendance.  Below are some pictures.
