Three seniors on the El Dorado High wrestling team combined for a 4-0 record Wednesday in a Sierra Valley Conference dual meet against Liberty Ranch and Galt on Senior Night at LA Brown Gym.

In their matches against Liberty Ranch, Tryston Alvarez-Ross (160 pounds), Jeremiah Romero (170) and Rick Reed (182) won by pins. Romero pinned Galt’s Ceasar Candido in the second round. Romero led 3-0 toward the end of the round before he placed Candido on the mat for the three-second count.

“It was just great seeing them all go out with pins,” El Dorado head coach Robert Hart said. “They came out intense, and they were good to go.”

El Dorado posted a 55-12 win over Liberty Ranch, and a 52-11 victory over Galt. The two schools don’t field full varsity teams.

Cougar grapplers who won their matches against the Hawks and Warriors were Willy Gadow (113), Garrett Owens (126), Thomas McCann (132), Marcus Douglas (138), Daniel Carey (145) and Alex Baron (220).

El Dorado’s Connor Russell wrestled in the 152 and 160 pound classes against Liberty Ranch and Galt, respectively. He pinned the Hawks’ Kolby McDonald in the second round at 46.5 seconds, but fell to the Warriors’ Michayl Chanty by major decision, 15-2.

‘The biggest thing was the first match was bumping up kids to get all of our seniors (competing),” Hart said. “Against Galt, we bumped up kids to get more kids into matches. That’s mainly what we were going for.”

Marshall Vincent (220) also went 1-1 in his matches for the Cougars. Zachary Brazell and Jerry O’Halloran competed in the heavyweight class for El Dorado; Brazell won by forfeit and O’Halloran was pinned in a hard-fought match against Galt’s Vincente Ochoa.

There were 20 Cougar grapplers when the season started. But injuries and illnesses prior to the holidays shrunk the roster down to seven at one point. Now El Dorado has 15 back on the mat with one more dual conference meet at River City next week. The conference tournament will be on Saturday, Feb.15.

“The kids are doing good,” Hart said. “We’re peaking at the right time. All that matters in wrestling, in my opinion, is the postseason.”
