We had a great turnout this past weekend at the San Clemente scrimmage. Most of the team showed up and got in at least 6 matches each with Jonny Gutierrez and Mike Logan tapping out at 13!! Way to go guys.


Schools from all over SoCal participated and it was great exposure for the team. Check out all the hard-core wrestlers out there.


*Check out highlights of the Penn St.–Iowa dual.  #8 Iowa upset #1 Penn St. at Penn St.  Also check out the crowd before the dual.  Some are already calling it the “dual of the decade.”  Probably overshooting things a bit, but still, it was electric.  Notice how hard these guys wrestled, and how hard nosed the Iowa guys were.  It’s wrestling like that that’ll bring fans into the gym…when you get after it on the mat, score like a machine, and don’t let up, that’s exciting.

Also, did you guys know I promote reading?  Yeah, I do.  If you aren’t reading, one day you will call someone who does “boss.”  Ergo, here’s a little homework for you.  Check out the following online paper: Unskilled and Unaware of it: How Difficulties in Recognizing one’s Own Incompetence Lead to Inflated Self-Assessments.  It is interesting.

Check out some of  the action at the San Clemente scrimmage.  This weekend 14 Capo wrestlers battled it out at SC.  Some of the freshmen (Ryan Merrill, for example) even ventured into the varsity room to get some experience.  Though the more experienced wrestlers got the better of them, if they keep that up, they’ll have the upper hand before too long!  Last man standing: Zach Fishman of San Clemente (seen at the end of the video).  He got well into the double digits in terms of number of matches.  If he’s gettin’ after it, you boys had better too! 🙂

PS–lineups for this week will be posted on Tuesday.  Meet schedule has been revised to include locations where it was vague.
