The Del Oro boys wrestling team earned a third-place finish at last weekend’s Beast in the North tournament at Anderson High School.
Leading Del Oro’s showing at the big meet was 170-pounder Dylan Kainrath, who won his division and was named the most outstanding upper-weight wrestler.
Also grabbing a weight division title was Jansen Engelbrecht at 120 pounds.
Del Oro was in first place by one point after Friday’s opening round, but finished behind Elk Grove and Spanish Springs of Nevada after Saturday’s results.
Other top wrestlers for Del Oro from the event were Isaac Blackburn (106, 3rd) and Zach Ruybal (126, 3rd).
In last week’s Sierra Foothill League opener, Del Oro made short work of visiting Rocklin in a 67-6 win.
Del Oro wrestling coach Dave Sanchez was pleased with his team’s opening effort and thinks that the Golden Eagles’ rugged pre-season slate will carry over to this year’s SFL race.
“We have had a tough schedule so far this season and it has really served to help our guys with their intensity level,” Sanchez said.
“We have seen and wrestled some of the best guys in the state and surrounding states. As a team we have concentrated on improving every week and doing the things necessary to win the close matches.”
“We have several tough SFL matches ahead of us this month,” Sanchez said. His Golden Eagles will compete in the Five Counties Championships and the Mark Fuller Invitational in Fountain Valley and Lincoln respectively this weekend.
“I think we are wrestling really well right now.”
