It was a beautiful day in Castro Valley on Saturday, Dec. 12 when CVHS held a wrestling tournament. There were over 150 matches throughout the whole day and every single one of them meant something. As soon as you walked into the gym doors you heard all the parents and coaches encouraging their wrestlers to do better and you heard the cheers when someone pinned another wrestler down.
Out of all the Castro Valley wrestlers there were three seniors leading the pack: Brandon Aranzamendez, Aidan Milligan, and Christian Chacon. Every single player wrestled extremely well.
“Overall we did pretty good, win or lose we all learned what we need to work on this Monday,” said senior Aranzamendez.
But one player in particular took home the first place trophy, Milligan, who has been wrestling ever since his middle school days at Creekside. He also had a pin in under 30 seconds during one of his matches.
Overall, the CVHS boys varsity wrestlers did well. The coaches were satisfied with everyone’s efforts but they all know there is always time for improvement.
