Vista del Lago’s wresting team improved to 3-0 in the Sierra Valley Conference with a dominating 66-12 win over El Dorado Wednesday night.

The Eagles only lost two matches, one of which was by forfeit, in the big win. Dalton Boyer (106), Antonio Mulqueeney (120), Evan Shelley (145), Ben Johnson (160), Ian Berklacich (195) and Clayton Wagner (220) all earned first-period pins, the fastest of which belonged to Johnson, who pinned Jeremiah Romero in 25 seconds. All six pins came in less than one minute.

Jacob Sahagun, wrestling at 170, also earned a pin, his coming in the third period against Rick Reed. Trace Fredericks (113) and Jesse Zhang (126) earned the team 12 points with forfeit wins.

Mason Wright (132), Michael Gary (138) and Troy Grossi (152) all won by major decisions; Wright 8-0, Gary 12-3 and Grossi 15-6.

“With each victory the team gains confidence and focus on earning their first league title,” Vista coach Frank Richmond said.

The Eagles compete in the Jailbreak Duals on Friday and Saturday and then the Sierra Nevada Classic in Reno the following weekend.
