Our BK wrestlers have been quite active the past few weeks during the beginning of the season. Here are some highlights:
Jorge Gonzalez wrestled in his first tournament at Rowland Heights in December, and placed second! That earned him Wrestler of the Week honors:
Craig Phoenix, a second year wrestler, has been very impressive at the advanced level. He has placed in all tournaments he wrestled in. His performance at Brea earned him W.O.W honors for week 2:
We’ve traveled to a few other rooms too, participating in a scrimmage at San Clemente, and partaking in a clinic at Surfside in Huntington Beach, featuring 3x College D1 All-American (Northwestern) Jason Welch.

Lastly, the BKWC came up big at the Cerritos College Tournament of Champions this last Sunday. We took 8 wrestlers, and all 8 medaled in the top 3. This is the first time we’ve ever medaled all our entries, and 8 medalists is a record number for us too. Gerardo Hernandez was named W.O.W for finishing first in the advanced division:
Things are looking up for us, and we have lots to celebrate. We are at it again this week with a scrimmage at Laguna Hills and a tournament at San Clemente.
