Big Kat Makin’ Waves

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.
