Hello CSD-Riverside Community!
We are very proud of our wrestlers for their performance at CIF-SS Individual Championships – Eastern Division last weekend. They wrestled hard and gave their best but unfortunately none of the wrestlers advanced to CIF-SS Master Meet.
Jose Garcia, Jose Zandoval, Steven Briseno, Majhedi Matthews-Wells, and Wayne Aguirre wrestled in their first CIF tourney and lost both rounds. They did gain a lot of experience that should help the returning wrestlers for next season.
Brendan Busch won his first match, but he lost the next round to a state ranked wrestler and failed to advance in the next round. We are proud of him because he wasn’t feeling 100% as he just came back from illness and he yet gave his best.
Rogelio Maciel won his first round match but had a difficult time with a #4 seed in the next round. However he won the next round in an impressive fashion that earned a very rare thumb up sign from a CIF official. He lost the next round but he vowed to come back next year even better.
Hiroshi Nakama was the only wrestler who advanced to Saturday’s rounds after winning 3 out of 4 rounds on Friday. He wrestled and lost his next round we have high expectations on him for next year.
Please congratulate them for their performance during CIF tourney as well as during 2013-2014 season.
