Building Young Champions, on and off the Mat

So Far in 2014-15

We have gotten off to a great start so far this year!  Lots of action in December: two tournaments–El Dorado and Megatron–and 4 scrimmages: Valdez, two San Clemente scrimmages, and Laguna Hills/Marco Forrester Middle School.  As we move into January, we have a lot of momentum!

Here are some highlights:

*At the El Dorado tournament, we had 28 competitors, 16 medalists, 7 of them first place. Nate Garrison, Will Garrison, Craig Phoenix, Jake Herrera, Osten Dandan, Diego Garcia, Max Park, Caleb Park, Max Callas, all medaled.  Jorge Gonzalez, Ian Rudner, Kyler Petronis, Josh Bentley, Treyvon Shodja, William Burks, and Sam Callas all took first.

Results

Our youth club continues its success.  Recently we had great scrimmages vs Laguna Hills and Marco Forrester, and tournaments at San Clemente and Fountain Valley.  The kids got great experience at all events, and we continue to bring home some great hardware at tournaments.  Most recently, Caleb Park was awarded our first “Wrestler of the Month” for his recent performances, including a second place finish in the advanced division at Fountain Valley.

He is an exciting wrestler to watch.  He is incredibly aggressive and attacks the legs non-stop.

Caleb’s accomplishments are extraordinary, for he is only a second year wrestler.  He has worked very hard in the offseason, and it shows.  He is defeating wrestlers who have many years more experience than he does, and is doing very well in the advanced division at tournaments.  Hats off to him for all his hard work!
