Garcia loses in championship bout; Graves 3rd

SAN LUIS OBISPO (12-13-2014) -- Palomar's Alberto Garcia lost in the 133-pound finals, while teammate Alex Graves finished third at 184, as the CCCAA State Wrestling Championships concluded a two-day run on Saturday at Cuesta College.

The Comets placed ninth in the state with 48 points.

Garcia, a freshman from Orange Glen High School, decisioned Sierra's Travis Roberts 5-3 in the quarterfinals, then decisioned Albert Landeros of Bakersfield 8-0 in the semifinals.

In the finals, Garcia squared off against Dustin Kirk from eventual state team champion Cerritos. Garcia had handed Kirk his only loss of the season 10-9 in the 133-pound championship match at last week's Southern California Regionals.

Kirk, a sophomore appearing in the state tournament for the second year in a row, led 4-2 after the first period but Garcia tied the match 4-4 with a reversal late in the second period. Kirk escaped with 20 seconds remaining in the period to regain the lead and put the match out of reach on a takedown with 32 seconds remaining in the third period. He went on to defeat Garcia 9-5, avenging last week's loss.

In the 184-pound division, No. 1 seed Graves, a freshman from San Marcos High, recorded one of the fastest pins of the tournament in 58 seconds against Shasta's Thomas Cross in the quarterfinals but was upset by Will Gockel-Figg of team runnerup Fresno City College 5-1 in the semis. Graves rebounded to decision Sacramento City College's Logan Paxon 6-1 in the third-place match.

Among other Palomar wrestlers, Peter Donchev pinned Cuesta's Joseph Else in 6:27 for fifth place at 165 pounds. Eric Collin placed eighth, also at 165.

Cerritos, out of the Southwest Conference in which Palomar is also a member, outscored second-place Fresno 167-159 to in capturing the team title. The Falcons and Rams were followed in the top 10 by Mt. SAC in third with 111.5 points, fourth-place Chabot (72 points), fifth-place Santa Ana (69), sixth-place Sacramento (66.5), seventh-place Cuesta (56.5), eighth-place Bakersfield (55), the Comets in ninth place and Rio Hondo (43.5 points) in 10th.

Garcia was attempting to become Palomar's 32nd state community college champion. The most recent Comet to win a state title was Lewis Gonzales at 165 pounds in 2007.

PC 3rd, advances 7 to state; Garcia, Graves win

NORWALK (12-06-2014) -- Palomar, getting championships from Alberto Garcia at 133 pounds and Alex Graves at 184, placed third in Saturday's Southern California Community College Regionals at Cerritos College and advanced seven wrestlers to next weekend's CCCAA State Championships.

Palomar's qualifiers for the state tournament this upcoming Friday and Saturday at Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo are the two regional champions, Garcia and Graves, along with Chris Jones (third at 149 pounds), Peter Donchev (fourth at 165), Brad Schwarze (fifth at 197), Frank Sandoval (sixth at 125) and Bruce Valdez (sixth at 157).

Garcia decisioned Dustin Kirk from host Cerritos 10-9 in the championship match at 133. Graves decisioned Cerritos' Max Kumashiro 10-3 in the 184-pound finals.

Garcia was named Pacific Coast Athletic Conference Men's Athlete of the Week.

The Comets spent most of the day in second place behind eventual regional team champion Cerritos before slipping into third behind the Falcons (164 points) and runner-up Mt. SAC (104).

Fourth-place Santa Ana (71.5 points), Cuesta (58), Rio Hondo (51.5), East Los Angeles (48.5), Bakersfield (46.5) and West Hills LeMoore (16) trailed the leaders.

Comets lose to CBU varsity, down Trojans

RIVERSIDE (11-12-2014) -- Supposedly scheduled against Cal Baptist University's "B" team on Wednesday night, Palomar found out when it arrived at the Lancers' Van Dyne Gym it was instead wrestling the CBU varsity.

The result of that surprise matchup was predictable. Without a 133-pounder, the Comets forfeited the weight class and lost eight of the nine remaining matches vs. the nation's 18th-ranked NCAA Division II team.

The Lancers, who gave Stanford a solid test two weeks ago and were coming off an 18-15 victory over traditional national Division I power Cal Poly last week in San Luis Obispo, won 48-3. Four-year college wrestling does not begin until November and Cal Baptist has opened its season with a 3-1 record.

In its second match of the night, Palomar routed the USC Club Team 47-11 to conclude the regular season with a 10-4 dual match record.

The Comets' winner vs. Cal Baptist, not surprisingly, was 184-pounder Alex Graves (above left), who has lost only once all season. Graves decisioned the Lancers' Anthony Ballinger 12-10 after opening up a 10-5 lead midway through the second period. Palomar's 165-pounder Erik Collin (above right) nearly defeated CBU's Bradley Christensen, finally losing 5-3.

Cal Baptist's Christian Betancourt, a two-time community college All-American at Mt. SAC and the 2013 CCCAA state 125-pound champion, got things rolling for the Lancers right out of the blocks as he defeated Palomar's Frank Sandoval by technical fall. Cal Baptist then won the next six bouts, including the forfeit at 133, before Graves got the Comets on the scoreboard.

Besides being without his two 133-pounders, coach Brody Barrios was missing two state-ranked wrestlers, Peter Donchev and Cody Doyle, so had to improvise at multiple weights. 

Sandoval redeemed himself with a 21-5 technical fall victory over USC's Aaron Frankel in the opening 125-pound match to get the Palomar rolling the same way that Betancourt got Cal Baptist rolling against the Comets.

Josh Lawson (141 pounds) and Lee Valdez (157) also won by fall against the Trojans. Lawson pinned Sean Yuan in 4:54. Valdez pinned Alvin Wong in 3:59.

USC does not have an intercollegiate wrestling program and instead fields the club team.

3 freshmen are bright spots vs. No. 1 Cerritos

SAN MARCOS (11-05-2014) -- State No. 4-ranked Palomar's 25-9 Southwest Conference loss to No. 1-ranked Cerritos at The Dome on Wednesday night came down to a handful of factors.

All four of the Falcons' state No. 1-ranked wrestlers won in dominating fashion, even though it appeared going in that their Palomar opponents in three weight divisions had fair-or-better chances for possible upsets. But Cerritos' Dustin Kirk took a 10-2 major decision win over state fifth-ranked Alberto Garcia at 133 pounds. A.J. McKee was a surprisingly dominant 9-3 winner over No. 3-ranked Cody Doyle at 157 and Keanu Tom drew away from No.-4 ranked Peter Donchev as the bout wore on to win 8-3 at 165.

Then then were these matches: Cerritos' Dylan Clarke, ranked fifth in the state, stuck the Comets' Erik Collin, ranked No. 1 at 174 pounds, for a quick five points to open their bout, then held on to upset Collin 7-5. And the Comets lost other competitive matches that coach Brody Barrios felt they had a chance to win, notably the Falcons' Kevin James' 7-5 victory over Chris Jones at 149.

But Palomar (9-3, 2-2 in the Southwest Conference) was not without its bright spots in the match. Notably, there were the performances of its three winners, who like most of the team are freshmen -- Josh Lawson's 8-2 domination over Jesse Mastron at 141, state No. 1-ranked Alex Graves' 7-3 victory over No. 3-ranked Max Kumashiro at 184 and a huge suprise when Brad Schwarze, a redshirt freshman from New Egypt, New Jersey, burst on the state scene by manhandling state No. 5-ranked Oscar Martinez 8-4 at 197 pounds.

Schwarze's win was not as close as the score might make people think. In fact, in reality it was not close at all.

Schwarze, who originally enrolled at Orange County Community College in Middletown, New Jersey, which does not have a wrestling team, had spent most of Palomar's season under the radar attempting to get down to the 197-pound weight. The upper weight limit for the heavyweight class, the only division above 197 in college wrestling, is 284 pounds. So, for Schwarze, it was 197 pounds or bust.

Schwarze, who began the match by throwing Martinez around the mat and slamming him for most of the first two periods, eventually seemed to tire some in the third period. But Barrios definitely has a long-range spot reserved for the physical Schwarze.

By the time state No. 1-ranked heavyweight Robert Chism pinned Palomar's Adam Waller in the first round, the outcome of the match had been decided for a while. And Chism had entered the bout as an overwhelming favorite.

Palomar will close the regular season next Wednesday night when it faces the Cal Baptist University "B" team and the USC Club Team in Riverside hoping to pick up two more dual wins to finish 11-3. Then the Comets will get another shot at Cerritos and state No. 2-ranked Mt. SAC in the Southern California Regional Tournament at Cerritos and the State Championships at Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo. Fresno City College, at No. 3, is the other team in California ranked ahead of Palomar.

First loss for Graves but PC wins to go to 9-2

WHITTIER (10-29-2014) -- Palomar's Alex Graves took his first loss of the season on Wednesday night but the Comets remained on a roll with a 22-15 Southwest Conference victory over Rio Hondo.

Coach Brady Barrios' squad advanced to 9-2 on the season.

Daniel Allen, ranked No. 2 in the state, decisioned Graves at 174 pounds. Graves had been ranked first in the state at 183 pounds before dropping down to the 174-pound class.

Winners for Palomar were Frank Sandoval (left) by decision at 125 pounds, Alberto Gonzales by major decision at 133, Bruce Valdez (right) by major decision at 157, Cody Doyle by major decision at 165, Dalton Ducasse by decision at 184 and Brad Schwarze by major decision at 197.

Garcia is ranked No. 5 in the state at 133, Doyle No. 3 and Peter Donchev No. 4 at 165, Graves now No. 3 at 174, Doyle No. 3, Erik Collin No. 1, Graves now No. 3 at 174 and Ducass No. 6 at 184. Barrios held both Donchev and Collin out of Wednesday's match.

The Comets will host Cerritos next Wednesday night, then will wrestle against four-year college teams in the Cal Baptist Duals on Wednesday, Nov. 12 to finish the regular season. The Cal Bapist Duals have been moved up from Saturday, Nov. 15.

PC wins 3 straight weight classes, Cuesta title

SAN LUIS OBISPO (10-25-2014) -- Palomar captured three consecutive weight classes and won the Meathead Movers Invitational hosted by Cuesta College on Saturday.

Along the way to their team title, the Comets defeated both Southern California duals champion Mt. SAC and Northern California duals champion Chabot College of Hayward in team scoring.

Cody Doyle won on Saturday at 157 pounds, defeating Mt. SAC's Jaime Jimmenez in the championship bout.

Erik Collin, ranked fifth in the state won at 165 by defeating Palomar teammate Peter Donchev, who is ranked seventh, in the finals.

And Alex Graves, ranked No. 1 in the state at 184 pounds, again wrestled down a weight at 174 pounds and remained unbeaten on the season, defeating Santa Ana's Micah Macias in the finals. On Wednesday, Graves had pinned Macias, the state's third-ranked 174 pounder, to help lead the Comets over the Dons 21-20 in a dual match.

The Comets' state No. 5-ranked Albert Garcia was second at 133 pounds, losing to state second-ranked Travis Roberts of Sierra in the championship match. Palomar's Dalton Ducasse placed fourth at 184.

Coach Brody Barrios' Palomar squad, ranked No. 7 in the state, was followed among the team scoring leaders by state No. 3-ranked Mt. SAC (second place on Saturday), state No. 4-ranked Cuesta (third place) and state No. 6-ranked Chabot (fourth place). Defending state champion Sacramento City College, currently ranked fifth in the state, took fifth in the tournament.

Collin takes home Athlete of the Week award

SAN DIEGO (10-27-2014) -- Palomar's Erik Collin (left) has been selected by the Pacific Coast Athletic Conference as Men's Athlete of the Week for the week that ended Sunday.

Collin, a freshman from San Marcos High School, was honored as Men's Athlete of the Week.

Lerno, a sophomore from Southwest High School in El Centro, is the Women's Athlete of the Week.

Collin, a freshman from San Marcos High School who is ranked fifth in the state at 165 pounds, played a key role in Palomar's Southwest Conference win over Santa Ana, decisioning Erik Roberts 5-3 at the Dons' Cook Gym.

In Saturday's Meathead Movers Tournament in San Luis Obispo, Collin defeated teammate Peter Donchev, the state's seventh-ranked 165-pounder, to win the weight class. His performance helped the Comets to the team championship over second-place Mt. SAC, third-place Cuesta, fourth-place Chabot and defending state champion Sacramento City College.
