Flashes Wrestlers have strong showing against Nordoff in League Match

On Wednesday 1/18/12 the Flashes hosted Nordoff for a League Wrestling Match. After a strong showing at Chaminade the Flashes looked focused yet loose and relaxed for the 5:00 PM match up. The evening started with 3 JV matches and came away with 2 wins and 1 loss. Jonathon Minero, recovering from an injury, stepped back into the ring and won on points. Andrew Bonilla, a freshman, gave it his all but ultimately pinned by his opponent. Alexis Ramirez matched up against a Nordoff’s lone female wrestler and was able to pin her in the 2nd period.

Mark “the man behind the mask” Zavala, also a Team Captain, went into the 3rd period and found his opportunity to pin his man for the win. Alex Rivera won by points in what was the lowest match score of the night 2 – 0. Rudolfo Lopez wrestled well but was pinned by his opponent. Gilbert Murillo a relatively new wrestler gave it 100% and was able to make correction during the match while Coaches Ponce and Estrada calling in the moves, but he was ultimately pinned by Nordoff. Joseph “Beast” DeLaMora showed his sheer physical dominance and pinned his man for the win. Michael Castro lost by pin in the 2nd period. George Orozco won by forfeit. Sammy “They Bull” Orozco, Team Captain, put on a points clinic and decided to win by technical default rather than by pin as is his usual preference. Marco Vega, Team Captain, won by forfeit as did David Cadena. Nic Stehly and freshman on the Varsity Team, lost to a Senior from Nordoff but not before showing great promise. Joseph Rojas, a freshman for the Flashes, also lost by pin.

After a great season, the Fillmore Youth Condors achieved their goal by taking nine athletes to the AAU National Cross Country meet, it took place in Orlando, Florida. After competing against eight other teams from the Southern California Youth track and Field Conference the Condors were able to qualify eight of their runners on the A-team.

To qualify on the A-team the runners needed to place on the top eight in their own divisions and each division had approximately forty athletes per division. The following runners qualified on the A-team and represented the SCYTFC as Comets: Jordyn Walla, Rey Laureano, and Camilo Torres were on the sub-bantam division in which both the boys and girls took first place as a team and were All American runners, which means they place in the top 25. Andrea Laureano was part of the B team in the sub-bantam team. The bantam girls Carissa Rodriguez and Naveah Walla also took first place as a team and were also All American. In the youth girls division, Irma Torres placed 52nd out of 117 runners and place fifth as a team. For the youth boys division, Andrew Strader placed 45th out of 137 runners and place third as a team. Alan Marquez ran as an individual and placed 60th in the boy’s intermediate race. The Southern California Comets as a team were the AAU National Youth Cross Country Champions for 2011! The team moms Judith and Viviana and coaches Temo, Victor and Rafa are very proud of everyone in their team for their hard work and discipline for the sport. The Condors also want to thank everyone that helped them with fundraising for the post season athletes: El Pescador, thank you Chuy, The Fillmore Rotary Club, we cannot thank you enough for helping us every year and finally thanks to all the parents from the Fillmore Condors. “PAIN IS TEMPORARY PRIDE IS FOR EVER’’ unknown source.
