The wrestling season hasn’t stopped yet for three Lompoc Valley athletes.
And all three hailing from Cabrillo High School came out of Fresno with top 10 marks at the USA Folkstyle Tournament held at Selland Arena this past weekend.
Freshman Kameron Wallace grappled in two different classes during the event: The junior boys 100-pound weight class and the cadet boys 100.
In the junior event, Wallace rose all the way to second place overall at Downtown Fresno. He fell to Tyler Riley of Vacaville during the first place match.
Wallace continued in the stacked cadet division where he settled for seventh place – by defeating Dylan Mizuhara of the Tri Valley Elite Wrestling club by pin fall during the seventh place contest.
Ryley Daltorio grappled in the junior boys 120-pound class. He took eight overall in a group that featured wrestlers from Santa Ynez, Lemoore, Granite Bay and Firebaugh.
Daltorio was defeated by Brandon Reynolds of the New Creation Wrestling Club in Benecia by pinfall during the seventh place match.
Richie Sandoval of Santa Ynez, fresh off of his CIF State appearance in the 120-pound class, went on to win the first place contest by edging out Jesse Gayton of Lemoore by a score of 5-3.
Lastly, Patrick Durham of CHS – who advanced on to the CIF Southern Section Masters Meet to help close out his winter sports season – settled for sixth place in the 182-pound class. Durham fell to Sam Wade of the Guardian Knights Wrestling Club of Pleasanton by pin in the fifth place contest.
CHS head coach of wrestling Mike Wallace says that the event is organized through USA wrestling and features traditional high school wrestling rules. He adds that freestyle state wrestling events will take place in April.
