From page B1 | January 24, 2013 |

FAIRFIELD — The Sac-Joaquin Section released its 2012-13 league strength ratings, which will be used to formulate power ratings for the upcoming prep basketball playoffs, on Wednesday, and area leagues drew wildly varied reviews.

Tops is the Monticello Empire League on the girls side with a 6.7 rating, which ranks seventh among the section’s 27 leagues, despite Armijo (15-6, 4-0) being its only team more than a game over .500.

Worst is the Solano County Athletic Conference girls league, which is tied for 16th with the Golden Empire League at 5.3 rating. Vanden (17-3, 4-0) easily has the conference’s best record with Fairfield (4-16), American Canyon (4-15) and Vallejo (4-11) each struggling mightily.

Closer to the middle on the boys side are both the SCAC and the MEL, with the former 12th at 6.2, the latter tied for 13th with the Modesto Metro Conference at 6.0.

Only Benicia (13-8, 3-1) and Vanden (13-8, 2-2) have winning records in the SCAC, with no teams left unbeaten in league play.

Meanwhile, the MEL has just two boys teams over .500 in Wood (13-8, 3-1) and Armijo (9-6, 2-2) with league-leading Rodriguez (9-11, 4-0) on a four-game winning streak.

Vikings capture first SCAC win

VALLEJO — Fernando Angulo and Kyle Tygart each recorded pins to help power the Vanden High wrestling team down Vallejo 36-24 for its first Solano County Athletic Conference win of the year on Wednesday.

Angulo prevailed at 140 pounds, Tygart at 162.

The Vikings also got forfeit wins from Joey Zambori (108), Albert Bernales (154), Nick Palacios (172) and Brandon Dontogan (184).

Vanden’s boys are at San Marin of Novato, its girls at Cesar Chavez of Stockton on Saturday before making the trip to Fairfield High on Wednesday.

Armijo 75, Vintage 3: At Fairfield, only one match went the distance as the Indians (8-4, 2-2 MEL) dropped just one bout in rolling to a 72-point victory.

Earning pins for Armijo were Darius Levan (108), Ryan Dechant (128), Dennis Mattuzzi (140), Damian Simpson (147), Danny Charos (172), Billy Cimmino (184) and Kris Elkin (heavyweight).

Garnering technical falls were Terrance Saeteurn (115), Hayden Scibek (134), and Amini Kapapa (162), while Josh Gadia (122), Jorge Perez (154) and Max Uson (197) won by forfeit.

The Indians are at Rodriguez’s Lou  Encalada Invitational on Saturday before hitting the road to take on the Mustangs on Wednesday in SCAC action.

Gonzalez delivered nine points and eight rebounds, while Coutee had seven points and eight rebounds, and Brianna White played a solid defensive game for the Knights (4-10, 2-4 SMAL).
