The 2-Day tournament was long and grueling, but the efforts of the team brought them to a second place finish in the small schools division and 12th of the participating 37 schools overall at the season opener Chuckchansi Invitational this past weekend.  With five wrestlers qualifying for Day 2 competition: Michael Valdez (138#), Will Thornton (152#), Mason Lenover (170#), Mike Robinson (195#) and Ryan Talley (220#), they faced some of the toughest competitors in the valley.  Our top three finishers: Valdez, Thornton and Lenover each fought their way to 8th place medals with final records of 4-3.
