Last updated 2/22/2007 at Noon
FALLBROOK — Two weekends ago, the Fallbrook High School freshmen wrestlers competed for the last time this season at the Freshman County Championships. Of the 14 wrestlers who attended this tournament only one placed, even though this is an outstanding class of freshman wrestlers. They hold great promise for the future of wrestling in Fallbrook. Marco Salazar, who lost only one match, took third place at 140 lbs.
Last Saturday, the varsity team was at the CIF Divisionals. This year Fallbrook High was represented by Brett Jones, seeded seventh at 103 lbs; David Lopez at 112 lbs; Henry Sosanavongsa, seeded eighth at 119 lbs; Juventino Arroyo at 125 lbs; Garrett Garcia at 130 lbs; Haden Lundy, seeded seventh at 135 lbs; Marco Salazar at140 lbs; Shannon Cone at 145 lbs; Zac Plum, seeded seventh at 152 lbs; Stuart Reeder at 160 lbs; Gabriel San Miguel at 171 lbs; and Jacob Wagaman, seeded third at 215 lbs.
This coming Saturday, February 24, the Masters Tournament takes place in San Ysidro. Six of the 12 wrestlers who went to CIF qualified for this tournament: Jacob Wagaman and Bret Jones by placing fourth, David Lopez by placing sixth, Zac Plum by placing seventh and Shannon Cone and Hayden Lundy by placing eighth. Those who place in the top four at this tournament qualify for the State Championships being held in Bakersfield on Friday and Saturday, March 2 and 3.
The wrestling team wishes to express thanks to all supporters of the team this season. “We particularly want to thank our Adopt-a-Wrestler sponsors and everyone else who has given so generously this year to our team, especially our upper level Team Sponsors: Dorman Construction, Valley Short Pour, Bonsall Construction, BITF Sports, Del Sol Trucking, Ultra Graphix, Major Market and the Meyers Family,” said Bonnie Wagaman. “It’s never too late to donate! All funds raised will first be used to help cover team expenses at the Masters, State and, if anyone gets that far, National Tournaments this year, and then any funds left over will go to support your FUHS Warrior wrestlers next year.”
