After winning area 10W championship in December 09, the Fillmore Wolverines participated on the 2009/2010 Section 10 League Playoffs. During this tournament we defeated teams from Bakersfield, Fresno, Lompoc and Victorville. We participated on this tournament as AYSO area 10W Champions and we proudly advanced to the finals of this tournament. Unfortunately we were only a step away from State Championship but finished the tournament second, an accomplishment that no other Boys U10 Fillmore AYSO team has done in the past. Our boys played hard and never gave up despite all the obstacles we faced during the tournament. This tournament took place during the last week of February in the city of Bakersfield. A weekend that will be remembered by both parents and players for a long time. The rain, wind and the freezing temperatures could not stop the Fillmore Wolverines from completing a near perfect playoff run of 9 straight wins. Unfortunately, being from a small town such as Fillmore, gave us a big disadvantage while competing against bigger AYSO organizations like Santa Barbara. A city with AYSO members that can influence the game and capable of bending the rules to their advantage. We are proud of our Wolverines and remember, keep your head up high and be proud to represent Fillmore AYSO. Thanks to all the parents for taking the time and making this season a season to remember. Thanks to our team mom Alyssa Calderon, our coaches Ignacio Calderon and Octavio Hernandez. GO WOLVERINES.

The scene could have been something out of a movie. A large gym and in the middle of the gym was one wrestling mat under the gleaming lights and crowds lining both bleachers. Wrestlers lined up and to take their turn on the mat under the lights with the crowd in full support. Small school single mat wrestling at its best was on tap Friday February 2nd when the Flashes hosted the Individuals Tri-Valley League Finals. Fillmore, Santa Paula, Nordoff and Mailbu wrestlers all competed for Individual standings in the league. The gym was filled with wrestlers, coaches and fans. New Jewish Community School did not participate in the match due to the conflict between their Sabbath and tournament dates. Respect goes to NJC for standing up for what they believe in.
Wrestling started at 5:15 PM with JV Girls Matches, and then progressed to JV Boys Matches, followed by the elimination rounds for Varsity. By the time the Varsity Matches were completed and the Awards Ceremony completed it was close to 10:00 PM. The action flowed from start to finish.

Taking Tri-Valley Individual League Championships was: Mark Zavala at 119 pounds and Christian Conaway at 145 pounds.

Flashes wrestlers who took runner up in the league include: Robert Bonilla (112), Jonathan Minero (125), Tyler Gray (130), Kyle Castaneda (145), Rodolfo Lopez (140), Anthony Edwards (171), Sammy Orozco (191) and Anthony Perez (heavyweight).

Taking the title for JV’s was Austin Davis at 171 pounds. Three Lady Flashes; Ariele Legan (108), Brenda Alvarez (135) and Alexis Ramirez (165) also won titles.

Previously reported the Flashes Wrestling Team is comprised of all under classman. With a solid feeder program firmly seeded in the Middle School the 2010-11 season looks oh so sweet. This year Fillmore took second in league as a team. They’re already firmly looking to knock Santa Paula off their perch next year.

The determination of Fillmore advancing to CIF as a team is undetermined at this time. What is known is individual Flashes wrestlers will compete in the CIF Individual tournament.

Wrestling returned to Fillmore on Jan 27 when the Flashes hosted Santa Paula Cardinals in a Tri Valley League match. Due to extenuating circumstances Coach Calderon was forced to reorganize the team for the match, which placed the team at a disadvantage for the match. Typical of the Flashes they accepted the challenge and did their best. Wrestlers putting points on the board for the Flashes included; Robert Bonilla wrestling at 112 pounds, Sammy Orozco wrestled at 189, Christian Conaway wrestled up in the 152 pound class and Marc Zavala wrestled at 125, one Flashes wrestler received a bye at the 145 pound class.

Final team score was Santa Paula 36, Fillmore 35. Sadly for the Flashes his match determined who would lay claim to the Tri Valley League Championship for the 09-10 season.

On 1/20 The Flashes Varsity Wrestlers traveled to Chaminade High School in West Hills for the Chaminade Invitational. 26 schools competed in the event. Sammy Orozco took 3rd place in his weight category. Several others took 5th and 7th place. Competition at this event was fierce and will likely represent what the Flashes will be up against as they begin CIF wrestling in a few weeks.

On 2/5 Fillmore will host the Tri Valley League Finals. School Participating include: Santa Paula, Nordoff, Malibu, New Jewish Community and Fillmore.

Make plans to come to come out and support the Flashes at their final league match.

Flashes traveled to Palmdale to compete in the 2 day Highland 12 Way wrestling tournament this past weekend. It was a team tournament with individual medal awards. Fillmore wrestled Reseda, Agoura, Knight, Chatsworth, Palmdale, Highland, Lancaster and Antelope Valley. Schools present but not wrestled by the Flashes were Little Rock, Upland and Eastside.

Fillmore was victorious over Knight, Antelope Valley, Lancaster and Palmdale. The Flashes tied with Chatsworth and lost to Agoura by 2 points and lost to Highland and Reseda.

Four Flashes medaled in individual points. Robert Bonilla (112 pounds) went 6 -1 and brought home 2nd Place, Christian Conaway (145 pounds) went 8 – 0 and brought home 2nd Place, Austin Davis (171 pounds) went 5 – 3 and took 4th Place and Sammy Orosco (189 pounds) went 6 – 2 and took 3rd Place.

The Flashes are coached by Bob Calderon. Coach Cal has been coaching wrestling in Fillmore for the past 26 years. While Coach Cal is excited about the team, he’s even more excited about the next few years as the entire team is comprised of under classmen. Only 4 wrestlers are juniors which means that Flashes Wrestling will be a dominant force for the next few years.

The Frontier League Championship will be held in Fillmore on Wednesday January 27th. It’s come down to Fillmore vs. Santa Paula once again for the title.
