Wrestle Offs for Men’s Varsity Team Today

Need I say more? Good luck guys.

First Lady Patriots tournament of the 2015-16 girls wrestling season at Savanna High School.

Congratulations to our Lady Patriots!

This past Saturday we had 14 girls compete in the Rebel Rumble at Savanna High School in Anaheim. Our girls finished 29th out of 47 teams. We would have finished in the Top 25 if our B-team points were counted. Considering that our girls wrestled up a weight class, and our team has all first year wrestlers, they should be extremely proud of their accomplishments. The Lady Patriots were led by sophomore Alisa Adanza who went 3-1. Congrats to the following girls that collected their first victory of their high school career: sophomore, Ana Jiwu, sophomore Janeth Cazares, sophmore Ana Garcia, freshman Melissa Moreno (2-2), and freshman Ana Garcia (2-2). The next tournament for our ladies team is on Saturday, December 5th at Magnolia High School in Anaheim. Good luck next week.

Irvine Scrimmage

This past weekend our men’s wrestling team had 45 wrestlers compete at the Irvine scrimmage. Most of our kids had 3 scrimmage matches, and some of our ambitious wrestlers had 6 matches. For many of our wrestlers this was their first time competing in a wrestling match, and tournament setting. They figured out the importance of showing up on time, how to put on the head gear, they learned what wrestling technique worked, what technique needs to improve, and to listen to their coaches. Our wrestlers also learned their level of strength and conditioning against their competition. All of our wrestlers gave a good effort. It was definitely an adventurous trip home as the bus broke down and we had to wait an extra 45 minutes for the replacement bus. We had a couple of kids come home with some injuries, and other than that it was a great scrimmage. Our girls team will have their first tournament on Saturday, November 28th at Savanna High School in Anaheim. Our varsity men’s team will have their first tournament on Saturday, December 5th at Corona del Mar High School. Back to the mat…

8) CREATE A FACEBOOK ACCOUNT – All five (5) wrestling coaches are walk-on coaches, which means that we DO NOT teach on campus. Because this is the case, Facebook is the primary source of communication for our parents and wrestlers. I post a weekly agenda every Sunday, along with practice room assignments, tournament schedules, competition photos/videos, fundraisers, booster meetings, wrestling technique videos, motivational speeches/readings, etc….Facebook will help you know what is going on and where your wrestler needs to be, and when. I strongly encourage that all wrestlers and at least one parent have joined our Facebook team page. You will need to search for our group: Beckman Patriot Wrestling and request to join our group so you can be given access.
