Sports: Braves Wrestling Looks to Continue Dominance Heading into Individual Run to State
by Hunter Richardson
The Bosco Braves’ athletic domination continues with the wrestling squad who took the Trinity League and CIF Title in two massive wins over familiar championship contender Servite Friars.
Bosco wrestling has claimed the CIF and Trinity League Titles in stellar performances winning each match by a large margin. The Braves wrestling squad took the win over Servite in both championship matches to secure the big-time wins for this program and continue the dominance that Braves athletics has had across the board so far this year. The Trinity League title win gave the Braves a huge belief going into the CIF Duals that they would easily take care of business.
The CIF Duals for the Braves began with an absolute dismantling of Norco in the Quarterfinals by a score of 72-6 followed by a 63-18 blowout win over Villa Park in the Semifinals. Then it was time for the Finals and as expected it was against the league rival Servite Friars. The Braves must have had supreme confidence going into the match knowing that they were better and that they could secure the victory. Some tricky tactics by Servite coaching gave them an early lead in the match. For the first time all season the Braves wrestling team had to face some adversity. But as expected, the Braves battled back and ran through the rest of the match securing the CIF title by a score of 50-26.
This year of accolades for Braves athletics continues to stockpile with football, soccer, basketball, and now wrestling. The wrestling team has been a staple for Bosco athletics over the years winning multiple championships and Trinity League titles. So this year is not off the trend for the Braves Wrestling Squad that continues to assert their dominance across California year after year in the Trinity League.
The Braves have nationally recruited Wrestlers such as Senior Nathan Haas who is committed to Nebraska which is in arguably the best conference in college wrestling, the Big Ten. He is the headlining wrestler to watch for during Individuals. The Braves Wrestlers began their individual runs this past Friday in the Trinity League Individual Championships. The Braves sent thirteen wrestlers and all of them qualified for CIF with eight first-place Finishers, three second-place finishers, and two third-place finishers. These wrestlers will have a chance to compete for themselves in the CIF Individuals and then the CIF Masters. If the Braves come through with victories at these events then Braves wrestling will be strongly in contention for an individual state team title.
