|Rancho wrestlers place 7th at tourney
Rancho Cotate High School’s wrestling team placed three wrestlers in championship matches during the Puma Classic at Maria Carrillo High School in Santa Rosa on Saturday, Jan. 26.
Unfortunately, none of them were able to leave the wrestling mat with a championship. Joey Clay, 154 pounds, Ty Brantley (162) and Brian Guerrero (115) all placed second in leading the Cougars to a seventh-place finish in the team standings.
State powerhouse Vacaville, of the Sac-Joaquin Section, ran away with the team title and had six individual champions and three second-place finishers. The highest-finishing team from the Redwood Empire was Windsor, which placed fourth.
The Cougars on Thursday, Jan. 31, will host Maria Carrillo in a key North Bay League dual match. Wrestling begins at 6 p.m.
