A Look Around Chabot Sports

The Chabot wrestling team took third place with 64 points in the KLS Air Express Invitational Tournament at Sacramento City. 
The Gladiators had seven individual placers, topped by runner-up finishers Zack Wally at 184 pounds and Devon Lyle, a transfer from Sacramento City, at 141 pounds. 
Also, Cody Tuazon was third at 125; Richard Crespo was fifth at 125; Raymond Monela was fifth at 133; Micah Gill was fourth at 174, and Gabriel Cardona tied for fifth at 285.
Wally of James Logan suffered a knee injury in his championship match – a 17-4 loss to Trevor Wright of Sacramento City. Lyle, a Liberty High-Brentwood graduate, lost by fall in 6:18 in the championship match against Clinton McAllister of Fresno City.
Gill, who received the trophy for the most pins in the tournament, dropped the third place match by fall against Nico Chapman of Sacramento City in 5:04.
A driven freshman who won a Utah state championship at Mountain View High, Gill says his No. 1 goal is to win a state CCCAA title and then transfer to a four-year program. He is also high on Chabot's team prospects.
"I think we have some good guys, but staying consistent is tough," he said recently. "Fresno and that area is just tough. We definitely have the talent, though."
Wally, who placed No. 2 in the CCCAA state meet two years ago, has been dealing with a back injury, but that hasn't stopped him from making a full commitment to the team. His goals are to win individual and team state titles.
"We have a lot of potential," Wally said. "We need to work really hard. There's a lot of other good teams in the state, so if we put our mind to it we'll be able to."
In the Sacramento City event, Tuazon won by pin over AJ Rosas of Fresno City in the third place match in  4:27. Monela tied with Ruben Escalante of host Sacramento in the fifth place match. Cardona also tied with David Corona of Skyline for fifth.
Chabot will next compete at West Hills College in Lemoore on Sept. 24.

The impressive Gladiators (6-0-0) entered the week as the state's only team without a loss or a tie.
Chabot, coached by legendary former USF player Tony Igwe, had back-to-back 2-0 wins over Ohlone and Merritt last week. Brandon Sosa, an international student from Guatemala, and Justyn Raygoza of James Logan scored against the rival Renegades. John Sanchez of James Logan had an assist. 
Against Merritt, Sanchez and Juan Lara of San Leandro High scored and Raygoza and Isaac Mensah, an international student from Ghana, had assists.
Goalkeepers Erik Ruiz of Hayward High and Alejandro Cervantes of Bienkwitz are both ranked in the state's top three in save percentage.

The Gladiators (2-4) split games last week, beating Marin 5-0 after falling 1-0 to Shasta.
Against Marin, Borami Schwartz had two goals and Gabriella Nunez of Westmoor had two assists. Divina Aseron of San Leandro, Bianca Tirado of Mt. Eden and Bailey Downum of Foothill also scored. Goalkeeper Adel Wendy Lukong, an international student from Cameroon, had three saves in the shutout. 
Erica Alarcon of Arroyo, Sydney Hollingsworth of Moreau Catholic and Breanna Aranda of Washington all had assists.

The Gladiators (1-3), led up front by freshman Hunter Misi of San Lorenzo will be back in action on Wednesday when they host Skyline at 6:30 p.m.
With opponents not always easy to come by, the young Gladiators are fine-tuning their play, preparing for their Coast-North opener against visiting Monterey on Sept. 30.

The Las Positas squad, which will return to action on Thursday in San Francisco, has good depth and a fantastic freshman class. The Gladiators boast North Coast Section cross country champion and NCS 1,600-meter track champion David Frisbie of Kennedy-Fremont. 
Versatile and talented, Frisbie had the distinction of being in ranked in the state's top 15 in all of his high school events.
"He's real strong," coach Kyle Robinson said.
Freshman Zach Connolly of Redwood Christian has already run 9:39 in the steeplechase, which would have qualified him for the CCCAA state track meet every year for the last decade, Robinson said.
Connoly came in third in Las Poaitas' first cross country meet this season against all the top teams in Northern California.
"I'm looking for some really big things from him," Robinson said of Connolly. "He's really green and has a lot of room to grow."
Freshman Jordan Kirby of Newark Memorial has run 4:20 in the mile.
Robinson's gung-ho squad, composed of Las Positas and Chabot runners, has four of its top five runners back from last year. The outstanding Jason Intravaia has transferred to Chico State. 
"I'm looking to at least repeat as third in NorCal," Robinson said of his team's outlook. "Las Positas has never cracked the top 10 in the state, and I think we have a really good opportunity to be in the top 10, if not higher. It's definitely a good-looking year for the men's program."
