FOUNTAIN VALLEY â€” The Brawley Union High wrestling team traveled and competed in the 5 Counties wrestling tournament here in one of the toughest tournaments in California.
The Wildcats returned home with two medals and an 11th place finish overall as a team.
Brawleyâ€™s Victor Gonzalez finished sixth at 138-pounds and Daniel Juaregui also finished sixth in the 195 weight class.
â€œWe started out great but when we started hitting those tougher wrestlers in the later rounds we were not wrestling good,â€ Brawley head coach Tony Leon said. â€œWeâ€™re not where we should be right now.â€
Brawley will have to regroup quickly as they will host Imperial High in an Imperial Valley League duel on Wednesday.
â€œI expect us to be ready to wrestle, go in there, and not give up a point,â€ Leon said.
