BAKERSFIELD — State champion.

That’s what everyone can call Vacaville High wrestler Jeramy Sweany for the rest of his life.

Sweany, just a junior, recorded a 6-0 win over Elk Grove’s Scott Votino Saturday night to win the 195-pound weight class at Rabobank Arena and finish his season with a near-perfect 51-1 record.

Sweany recorded two take downs against Votino, got another escape and then was rewarded another point when Votino was penalized for stalling.

Sweany’s win also meant Vacaville finished third as a team. Clovis won the team title.

“It feels good and feels even better to take third as a team,” Sweany said in a phone interview from the arena. “I worked hard, and it paid off.”

Vacaville coach Adam Wight was more than pleased with Sweany’s championship.

“The kid seemed to be a little passive,” Wight said. “He knew Jeramy, but he’s just too hard to stop. He comes forward and gets after you. He dominated the kid.”

It wasn’t quite the same result for the Bulldogs’ Gionn Peralta.

Peralta – the top-ranked 106-pounder in California coming into the finals, according to thecaliforniawrestler.com – lost a hard-fought 11-10 decision to Central’s Adrian Camposano in the night’s first championship bout to finish his season with a 48-8 record.

Wight said Peralta was up 8-4 heading into the final period before faltering.

“It was a barn-burner,” Wight said. “They were lighting up the gym. We got to a scramble situation. I thought Gionn had the kid pinned, but we didn’t get the call. It was one of the most exciting matches of the night.”

Vacaville’s Chris Lai, at 182 pounds, battled his way back through the consolation bracket to finish in sixth and earn a medal.

Lai won two decisions earlier Saturday before falling in the fifth-place match to Sultana’s Matt Williams.

The top eight finishers all earned medals.

Peralta opened the tournament Friday with three straight pins to give him 30 on the season before reaching the semis where Otay Ranch’s Tommy Espinoza injury defaulted.

Peralta then decisioned Buchanon freshman Durbin Llorin Saturday morning to reach the finals.

Sweany, also ranked No. 1 in the state, went 3-0 with two pins and a 6-3 decision over Clovis’ Matt Weiss.

Wood’s Josh Winters (220) won his first match Friday with a pin of Manuel Villalobos of Birmingham of Van Nuys in 4 minutes, 43 seconds, but then lost his next two and was also eliminated.

Vacaville wrestlers who were eliminated Friday were Anthony Hernandez (113, 2-2 record), Kasey Klaus (120, 2-2), Cameron Bailey (126, 1-2), Bobby Ehman (132, 2-2), Hayden Fry (145, 2-2), Zach Dawson (152, 2-2) and Steven Gomez (285, 0-2).

Rodriguez’s Brandon Vu (120) and Henry Medeiros (182) both went 0-2 Friday, while teammate Mark Papish finished the tourney 1-2. Papish edged Oscar Martinez of Centennial of Corona 3-2 for his only win Friday.
