Two of the more important high school wrestling tournaments took place last week in Orange County and when the smoke cleared there were 14 area wrestlers who took individual championships. It’s a strong indication that the area’s wrestlers this year could have a major say at the state tournament in February in Bakersfield. At the Edison Beach Bash at Edison High School, Rowland High School (213 points) had six wrestlers hit the top of the medal stand and that propelled them to  take the team title over Mayfair (205). Bonita finished in sixth place, Arroyo was seventh and South Hills was ninth. Rowland’s Josh Avila was named the tournament’s Most Valuable Wrestler in the upper weight divisions on the strength of his dominating performance in the heavyweight classification. In the final, he pinned Mayfair’s Angel Hernandez early in the second period, which also clinched the team race. Teammate Zion Longsine had a second-period pin against Downey’s Nelson Cruz in the 220-pound final. Rowland’s Alex Ramirez dominated Bonita’s Bradley Chirino 18-3 to win the 132-pound championship. In another area clash at 138 pounds, Rowland’s Steven Chavez pinned South Hills’ Noah Jaramillo in the second period. Rowland’s Richard Rojo, considered one the top grapplers in the state at 120 pounds, pinned La Quinta’s Michael Jahnig in the third period to notch his first title of the season. Freshman Fernando Barreto made his high school debut a winning one by defeating La Habra’s Justin Allred 15-4 to take down the 113-pound championship. Armando Murillo had little trouble dispatching Edison’s Jacob Iida with a first-period pin at 152 pounds. South Hills’ Matthew Reyes (126) won his first tournament of the season with a 12-6 win over Brandon Conchola of Mayfair. Santa Fe’s Felix Osorio defeated teammate Isaac Barragan to take home the 145-pound title. Arroyo’s Steven Castellon looked sharp while pinning La Qunita’s Jorge Castro in the second period in the 160-pound final. At the Mater Dei Tournament, Northview (242) easily took first place in the team race and Long Beach Poly finished second. Northview’s Jason Valencia, ranked 28th in the state at 132 pounds by The California Wrestler, was named the tournament’s most valuable wrestler in the lower weight classification, winning the 132-pound title with four pins on the day. Northview’s Marc Lagaspe, who had hit the medal stand in two tournaments earlier this season, defeated Tesoro’s Billy Dean 5-0 in the 113-pound final. Bryan Burgueno also notched his first tournament title with a second-period pin over Long Beach Poly’s Andres De Los Santos to win at 170 pounds. David Barela, who suffered a controversial loss at the Battle for the Rig Tournament in Bakersfield two weeks ago, won his first tournament of the season at 220 pounds. La Puente’s Juan Millan, a Masters qualifier last season, defeated Aliso Niguel’s Mahrad Reyhani 4-3 in the 120-pound final. BISHOP AMAT’S ESCOBEDO, LA CANADA FINISH FIRST  Many of the top wrestling teams on the West Coast converged on La Costa Canyon High School in San Diego for the Jimmy Hamada tournament. Bishop Amat (102.5) was the only area wrestling team to make the trip and finished in 17th place in the team race. Servite (211.5) took first-place in the team race. Guillermo Escobedo made his season debut a winning one by winning the 220-pound title. In the championship final, Escobedo defeated Sam Hart of Cherokee Trail High School of Colorado with a second-period pin. Other Lancers wrestlers who placed included Adrian Rios (fourth at 145), Juan Lopez (third at 160) and Vincent Garcia-Reveles (eighth at 285). At the Gabrielino Duals, La Canada took first place with an impressive 9-0 record for the two-day event. Among the teams they defeated were Walnut (38-34), Montebello (48-24) and Glenn (54-27). FIRST STATE RANKINGS There were 11 area wrestlers in the top 10 in their respective weight classes in the first in-season state rankings released by The California Wrestler. Those wrestlers included Northview’s Adrian Limon (ninth at 106), Gabriel Cortez (fourth at 145), Collin Hayes (10th at 138), David Barela (seventh at 195), Rowland’s Richard Rojo (eighth at 120), Alex Ramirez (10th at 126), Bishop Amat’s Marcos Polanco (fourth at 138), Christian Nunez (fifth at 126) and Guillermo Escobedo (fourth at 195), San Marino’s Luka Wick (third at 145) and Santa Fe’s James Cortez (fourth at 220). Hayes and Nunez will be eligible to wrestle next week after completing the mandatory CIF Southern Section sit-out period for transfers.
