Warrior Wrestling earned second place at the San Diego County Division IV CIF Championships held on Saturday, February 20, 2016. This is their best result in the 105-year history of the school!
The Warriors had three wrestlers in the finals. Two took first, becoming CIF Champions. Lucas Howes is the 132 pound CIF Champion, and Zach Schrader is the 220 pound CIF Champion. Both are elite-level wrestlers. Alex DeGraff was also a CIF Finalist, earning second place in his 195 pound weight class. He also wrestled extremely well.
In addition to the three finalists, the Warriors saw four additional medalists. Adam Armbruster earned third place in the 126 pound class, Cale Lewis earned fourth place in the 147 pound class, Anthony Tucker earned fifth place in the 184 pound class, and Alieu Corr earned third place in the 285 pound class. All medalists wrestled very well and played a role in helping the team place second.
Since the team totals were so close, every team point was critical, even for those who did not place. The coaches appreciate every team point scored and support every wrestler’s participation in CIF, and are very proud of all of the Warriors for an incredibly successful season. Warrior Pride!
