Four Chabot wrestlers place in tourney
Submitted By Steve Siroy, Chabot wrestling coach
Chabot College men's wrestling team traveled to Sacramento on Saturday, Sept. 18, for the Sacramento City College Wrestling Tournament. There were 10 teams there and Chabot tied for fifth place.
One Chabot College wrestler, Janik Santana in the 125-pound weight group, who was not even seeded to place in the tournament ended up placing. Santana surprised everyone and even revenged a loss that he had last week to place fourth. Craig Sherman, who was seeded fourth in the tournament, ended up beating the No. 1-seeded wrestler to make it into to the championship match, only to lose to Fresno wrestler Chris Heath.
Overall, Chabot had four wrestlers who placed in the tournament: Santana in the 125-pound division, losing his consolation finals match to Chris Padilla (Fresno) by a 7-6 decision; Sherman in the 165-pound division, losing his championship finals match to Chris Heath (Fresno) by a score of 9-6; Milo Anderson tied for fifth place in the 184-pound group; and Sam Gomez tied for fifth place in the 285 weight class.
As a team, Chabot finished in a fifth-place tie with Modesto College, both with 27 points. Fresno City took first with a score of 97, with Sacramento City (79), Cuesta (44) and Shasta (31) colleges finishing ahead of the Gladiators. San Joaquin Delta (24), Santa Rosa (22), Skyline (12) and Lassen (7) rounded out the scores.
The next match for the Chabot Wrestling Team is Sept. 25 when it travels to Lemoore to wrestle in the West Hills Wrestling Tournament. The tournament starts at 9 a.m.
