By From page B2 | February 16, 2013

FAIR OAKS — Vanden High’s Brandon Dontogan advanced into the semifinals after going 2-0 at 182 pounds during the Sac-Joaquin Section Division II wrestling tournament at Del Camp High, Friday

The Vikings’ Fernando Angulo (134) and Kyle Tygart (160) both finished 1-1 and will compete in the consolation bracket Saturday.

All other Vanden wrestlers were eliminated with 0-2 records.

Fairfield’s Albert Martinez (120) also moved into the semis with a 2-0 record, while Mark Beckendorf (138) and Cedric Page (285) went 1-1.

The Falcons’ Russell Sales (145) and Rito Gomez finished 1-2 and were eliminated.

The top four finishers Saturday advance to next weekend’s SJS Masters tournament at Stockton Arena.

Indians advance: At Vintage High in Napa, Armijo will send four wrestlers to the Masters tournament after the first day of the Division I tournament.

Darius Levan (106), Terrance Saeteurn (113), Hayden Scibek (134) and Billy Cimmino (184) were all 2-1 Friday and move on, with each guaranteed of finishing no worse than eighth.

Danny Charos (1-2, 173) was the only other Indian to record a victory Friday.

“It’s big for them,” Armijo coach Cesar Correa said. “It sounds easy, eight of 16 qualifying (for Masters), but there were no easy matches. . . . It’s a big boost knowing there’s another week of life.”
