From page B1 | January 30, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — The Vanden High wrestling team amassed five pins – three in the first round – in rolling to a 45-30 Solano County Athletic Conference victory over Vallejo, Wednesday.

Winning in the first period for the Vikings (2-2 SCAC) were Xavier Penrod at 220 pounds, Daniel Renbarger (108) and Albert Bernalas (162), while Chris Crutcher (115) and Derek Bruner (154) earned their pins in the second round.

Vanden also got a decision from Fernando Angelo (14) and forfeits to Kyron Griffin (170) and Brandon Dontogan (184).

“We’re starting to round into shape, starting to pick it up a little bit,” Vikings coach Lloyd Wilson said. “We’re wrestling a lot of first year guys and they’re starting to come around.”

Vanden will compete in the Lou Encalada Invitational at Rodriguez, Saturday, and host Fairfield in the SCAC finale, next Wednesday.

Armijo 59, Vintage 3: At Napa, the Indians (2-2) rolled up six pins to cruise a week after losing by a point to Napa.

“It felt good after that super close match to Napa last week,” Armijo coach Cesar Correa said. “It was pretty good to get a lopsided victory.”

Winning by pin for the Indians were Hayden Scibek (138), Ryan Cardos (154), Jorge Perez (160), Danny Charos (172) and Amini Kapapa (186). Matthew Mendoza (15-5 at 108), Houston Scibek (11-2 at 120) and Vishev Singh (13-4 at 147) won by major decision, while Darius Levan (103 at 115) and Billy Cimmino (10-7 at 197) prevailed by decision.

Armijo won the JV match 36-27.

The Indians travel to Rodriguez for the Lou Encalada Invitational, Saturday, before hosting the Mustangs next Wednesday in the MEL finale.

JC women’s basketball

OAKLAND — The Solano Community College women’s basketball team put five players in double figures, led by Nicole White’s 18 points, and stayed unbeaten in the Bay Valley Conference by easing past Laney College 98-70, Wednesday.

White drained 12 of 16 free throws to pace the Falcons (19-4, 10-0 BVC), while Taylor Hamilton and Denisha Lundy each had 15 points, Justice Robinson 11 and Kristina Kountouris 10.

“I was really happy with the balanced scoring, really happy with the defensive effort,” said Solano coach Matt Borchert, whose team led 47-25 at the half. “Super road win at Laney, really good win.”

The Falcons, ranked 14th in the state and seventh in Northern California by the CCCWBCA, host Napa Valley, Friday, on Girls Scout/Boy Scout Night, at 5:30 p.m.

Prep girls basketball

Indians escape with win over Crushers

NAPA — The Armijo High girls basketball had trouble holding onto the ball as well as shooting it but escaped with a 36-30 Monticello Empire League victory over Vintage, Tuesday.

The Indians (8-12, 2-2 MEL) turned the ball over 30 times and scored a combined 11 points between the second and third quarters. The teams were whistled for a total of 40 fouls.

“We survived a foul fest and a bunch of turnovers – and two bad quarters,” Armijo coach Lawrence Trigg said.

Passion Ware led the Indians with nine points, while Destiny Blueford added seven and Aniyah Ruffin pulled down 15 rebounds.

Armijo hosts Rodriguez, Thursday.
