Eagles Wrestling Champs Again

By Jacob Miranda

With the wrestling CIF finals done, both the boys teams and the girls team have finished their season as 605-League Champions. With Coaches Monico Enriquez leading the varsity team and Adrian Enriquez leading the junior varsity team, the boys were able to obtain a record of 12-3 for JV and 14-7 for Varsity. Despite their best efforts, though, neither team was able to make it past the second round of the CIF tournament, with Daniel Espinoza being the only boy to qualify during the 1st round.

When asked for comments, both coaches agreed that Jacob Enriquez and Julian Rodriguez were highlights of the team, stepping up from their first year (normally first timers are JV) to wrestle for Varsity. They also mentioned how proud they were that Freddie Valdivia finished off his senior year as the varsity wrestling Captain.
The girls wrestling team, on the other hand, are able to win all of the league dual meets. Led by their Coach, former JGHS alum Hector Ramirez, they were able to win the 605-League Championships. Sadly, they weren’t able to progress past the first round of CIF, though. When questioned, Coach Hector mentioned Mia Ramirez and Rain Aranjo as the people he believed went the farthest.
