FAIRFIELD — Home is where the win was.

The Armijo High wrestling team took top honors at the 43rd annual Armijo Invitational, defeating the runner-up, defending champion Franklin of Elk Grove, by 21.5 points (192.5-171) – earning three individual titles in the process.

“Our guys wrestled well,” Indians coach Cesar Correa said. “We had quite a few placers. Even guys who didn’t place won matches and got team points.”

The champions for Armijo were Darius Levan (109 pounds, 3-0), Houston Scibek (116, 4-0) and Jorge Perez (155, 4-0).

Levan dominated his bracket, winning every match by fall, including a 1 minute, 42 second-pin in the finals against Vacaville’s Chris Shirar.

“I wrestled (Shirar) earlier in the week (Wednesday), so I was feeling confident,” said Levan. “As a freshman, now (again as) a senior, you want your own success, but I want this team to be back where it used to be.”

Scibek had a pin in 2:43 in his first match, and won the rest of his matches by decision, including a 7-5 victory in the finals.

“Houston had two come-from-behind wins,” Correa said. “I’m really proud of him. As a sophomore he did really great.”

At 155 pounds, Perez had three falls in his bracket, prior to the championship round – where he won a 12-5 decision.

“It means a lot,” Perez said. “Taking first at home feels really good.”

Of Perez, Correa said “(Jorge) wrestled a tough guy in the finals. He has a good shot in the state tournament.”

The Indians’ Kris Elkin (223, 3-1) took home a second-place finish as he fell by pin in the finals. On the way to the finals, he had two pins and a decision. His first match of the tournament was against Daniel Maldonado of Will C. Wood – winning by fall in 1 minute 32 seconds.

The third place finishers for Armijo were Hayden Scibek (135, 4-1) and Vishav Singh (141, 4-1), both winning their third-place matches by decision.

Other local top finishers were Vacaville, Will C. Wood and Vanden.

The Wildcats finished in fourth place with 100 points, while the Bulldogs were seventh with 92 points.

Wood’s champion was Cody Healer (129, 4-0). His first three wins were by fall – the fastest taking place in his second match of the tournament as he pinned his opponent in 22 seconds. Healer won his championship match by a 6-3 decision.

Vacaville’s top finisher was Brayden Merrick (141, 4-0), who defeated Vanden’s Fernando Angulo in the finals by a 14-1 major decision. Merrick defeated Armijo’s Singh by way of a 3 minute, 31 second-pin in the semifinals.

“There weren’t any super powerhouse (schools), but there were good individual players.” Correa said. “I was happy how everything went.”
