Trinity League Title on the Line for Bosco and Servite


By Pablo Di Maria

Two of the most successful teams in the Trinity League will meet up tonight at 7: OO PM inside the St. John Bosco Gymnasium.  St. John Bosco is currently ranked # 4 in the state, while Servite sits just outside the top 10 team rankings. Bosco has won the league title 6 times (2006-2009, 2012-2013) and Servite has won it 3 times, the most recent being in 2014. Many fans tend to forget that St. John Bosco is a tournament team, but may not be as strong when it comes to dueling top teams. Nonetheless, in the sport of wrestling, it only takes one mistake and an upset could happen via the pin.

       Tentative lineups

    St. John Bosco (S)                    Servite (S)

106: Cade Olivas #1              Liam Cronin #17

113: Robert Eredia               Matt Rodriguez #39

120: Ben Angel                      A.J. Silva

126: Josh Solomon #31       Noah Blakely #13

132: Jacob Santiago              Wolfgang Bernal

138: Jonathan Rodriguez     Troy Madrigal #31

145: Jacob Bueno                  J.J. Reed #25

152: Matt Williams #34      Angel Cordova #31

160: Adrian Ochoa                Kevin Vidal

170: Anthony Valencia #1   Gordon Livermore #19

182: Zahid Valencia #1        Mike Vasquez #13

195: Danny Salas #19           Parker Saltzman #29

220: Jagger Aguilar               Kyle Patterson #25

285: Bryce Hix                        Victor Leuta #23

St. John Bosco is favored at 106, 152, 170, and 182, while Servite is expected to win at 126, 145, 220 and 285. The 113, 120, 132, 138, 160, and 195 weight classes are each up for grabs. Now, I know Saltzman defeated Salas 2-1 at Five Counties, but their match was close and a new outcome is possible tonight. Let the best team win!
