The boys varsity wrestling team defeated rival San Leandro High in a meet on Jan. 27.
As this was the last regular meet of the season, the four seniors of the team received special recognition for Senior Night. Team captain Steven Decker, Ryan Ramirez, Nizam Khwaja, and Tyler Henderson have all been wrestling with the team for multiple years.
Between the JV and varsity teams, the Trojans were able to win six of their matches. Ramirez won his match with a 7-0 decision, making the match seem to pass by quickly. Overall, the Trojans gained the victory over San Leandro High with a score of 45-27.
When asked about how he feels about his last high school wrestling season coming to a close, Ramirez commented, “it’ll be weird when the season is over because wrestling is a year-round sport and it will be the first time since I was little that I won’t ever have a wrestling practice again. I’m also excited and ready for the conclusion of my high school career.”
The Trojans will be participating in the West Alameda County Conference at Castro Valley on Feb. 18. If they do well at this meet, our Trojans will qualify for the NCS individual championships, which starts Feb. 24 at James Logan High School.
