After this week, it’ll be bon voyage for Sonoma Valley High School’s varsity wrestlers, who will be roadbound to wrap up their regular season and compete in the postseason.
In this week’s Sonoma County League dual matches and 6 p.m. home finales in Golton Hall, the Dragon grapplers will host longtime rival Petaluma tonight and new SCL foe Piner this Thursday, Jan. 24.
Before Thursday’s final Valley appearance, Sonoma will honor its eight seniors – co-captains Sam Denning, Aidan Lacy and Giordi Serafini, along with Jonny Amandoli, Sebastian Amara, Peter Gray, Alex Ohan and Jose Vazquez – and their parents.
This past Friday, six varsity Dragon wrestlers battled in the first day of the challenging Tim Brown Invitational in Sacramento, with two of them, Lacy and Serafini, advancing to Saturday’s top-16 and final rounds.
For Lacy, he ended up with an impressive 4-2 record, including two pin-wins, which earned him a fourth-place medal at 220 pounds.
With one loss going into Saturday, Serafini claimed his third win and was on the cusp of reaching the medal round, but fell just short and ended up with a 3-2 mark, including a pin, top-12 finish at 126 pounds.
Sonoma was also paced by Denning’s 2-2 record with a pin at 132 pounds; junior Harris Meglen’ 1-2 with a pin at 115; junior co-capatin Max Schimm’s 1-2 at 145; and sophomore Jake Randuch’s 1-2 with a pin at 120.
