“We could’ve done better in some aspects, but I’m proud of how we did today,” freshman Halo Lynch said. “Our seniors did fairly well today. I’m very proud of them and wish them well in the future careers.”
Seniors Calvin Grewal and Elliot Clark both won their matches, by pin and forfeit, respectively, while seniors Cooper Kim and Bryan Tsang took hard-fought losses at heavier weight classes than they usually compete in, due to a lack of wrestlers in corresponding weight classes.
“Senior night was really special for all of us because we’ve all stuck with the program for at least three years,” Clark said. “This is a nice way to say goodbye.”
With league tournaments and finals coming up, the team hopes to maintain its position in the De Anza division, according to Clark.
Last weekend, the girls’ varsity team competed in the Central Coast Section Tournament, finishing 14th overall, with three medals and a combined record of 19-13.
“Our varsity team killed it today [at CCS],” junior Masa Perez said. “They worked extremely hard for this win.”
There are no league rankings for the Santa Clara Valley Athletic League and the team is aiming for a top three finish, according to Clark.
The Vikings will be heading to Los Gatos to compete at Leagues at 2 p.m. on Friday.
