Assistant coach Eric Gould said that the outcome isn’t what’s important but rather the technique as the Cerritos College wrestling team prepares for its season opener on the road at the Mt. San Antonio Duals on Saturday, Sept. 22 at 9:00 a.m.

Cerritos College, along with several other local schools will be partaking in the meet.

The wrestlers competing in the meet include:

  • 125 pounders Gabriel Ballesteros and Michael Pinkerton
  • 133 pounders Rudy Delgado and Michael Perez
  • 141 pounders Greg Barrera and Michael Behnke
  • 149 pounders Joshua Ewing and Christian Pham and Eddie Rodgers
  • 157 pounders Dylan Garriott and Yuuki Murai
  • 165 pounders Dylan Clarke and Jose Sandoval
  • 174 pounders Christian Milian and Kyle Pivovaroff
  • 184 pounder Tyree Cox
  • 197 pounders George Knight and Tyler Smith
  • 285 pounders Michael Rivera and Weston Hawkins

Last season at the duals, Cerritos lost 27-13.

Sophomore wrestler Cox said that he feels he will do a lot better this first meet than last season’s.

“We had tough guys last year. We’re hungry for it and most of us have already been there last year so we’re pushing each other. I think we’ll do alot better.”
