Friday, January 11, 2015 Tustin High School hosted wrestling’s varsity ASICS tournament for around 50 schools in the surrounding area. Junior varsity and frosh-soph wrestlers combined with parent volunteers ran the event. Thanks to generous donations, the wrestling team raised over $3,000 for their program. ┬áKTLA 5 news reported on this event because it was so well attended. One of the teams that competed in the match lost their coach to a deadly seizure just a few days before this tournament. Before the matches began there was a moment of silence for the coach. ┬áThe atmosphere was intense–sweaty boys everywhere, and coaches yelling in every direction. With nine matches going on all at once, it was impossible to miss the action. Even with the intensity, hard-working boys still managed to have fun with their team mates. Tustin ended up winning a few medals at the end of the day.

Stay tuned for the girls wrestling tournament at 7:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 17 at Tustin High School.
