FAIRFIELD — The host finished in the top three with a crosstown rival right on its heels.

The Rodriguez and Armijo high school wrestling teams took third and fourth, respectively, in the Lou Encalada Invitational, Saturday.

Franklin of Elk Grove won the tournament with 166.5 point, while Oak Ridge was the runner-up with 149 points.

The Mustangs racked up 132.5 points with a first-place finisher and three thirds.

Armijo was right behind with 124.5 points, ending with two second-place finishers and one in third.

At 129 pounds, Rodriguez’s Brandon Vu (4-0) was the lone local champion, winning on two technical falls and two major decisions – including a 17-5 victory in the finals.

After losing to eventual champion Robby Nickerson of Franklin, the Mustangs’ Josh Weiss (185, 2-1) won a 9-3 decision to finish in third place.

“Some kids had some losses they didn’t like,” Rodriguez coach Mike Clarkston said. “But they responded very well.

“They came back and placed as high as they could. It was impressive the way they responded after a defeat.”

The Mustangs’ other third-place finishers were Emilio Gutierrez (163, 4-1) and Malachi Estep (141, 3-1). Gutierrez won a 11-3 major decision in his third-place match, while Estep won a 4-3 decision to take for third.

Estep also fell to the eventual champion in his weight class.

Armijo was also featured in the tournament finals – with Houston Scibek (116, 4-1), Hayden Scibek (135, 3-1) and Jorge Perez (155, 3-1).

Houston Scibek won two decisions and a fall on his way to the championship match, losing by a 15-0 technical fall.

Hayden Scibek defeated Will C. Wood’s Royce Ramirez in his second match on a 8-4 decision. He lost a 16-2 major decision in the first-place match.

Perez had a fall and two decisions on his way to the the third place match – defeating the Wildcats’ Markus Mourlot by a 13-4 major decision.

Will C. Wood’s Ramirez ( 135, 4-1) and Jeff Teel (116, 5-1) took home fifth place finishes, while Mourlot (155, 2-2) took home a fourth place finish.

In the 223-pound bracket, Armijo’s Kris Elkin (1-2) finished fourth, while Rodriguez’ Ryan Ballard (2-1) and Woods’ Daniel Maldonado (3-2) finished fifth and sixth, respectively.

Other fourth place finishers were Israel Colozza (198, 1-2) for the Mustangs and Amini Kapapa (173, 2-2) for the Indians.

“Its a tough little tournament,” Clarkston said. “Losing to Oak Ridge and Franklin is nothing to be sad about. I always hope that there are teams here that can beat us.”
