Laguna Hills' league title streak reaches 26

OCVARSITY.COM

ALISO VIEJO – The streak lives.

The Laguna Hills wrestling team entered the season having won 25 consecutive league titles. The Hawks made it to No. 26 on Saturday.

The Hawks finished with 216 points at the South Coast League finals at Aliso Niguel High.

Laguna Hills had six individual champions and 13 qualified for the CIF-SS Southern Division Individual championships on Feb. 15-16 at Santiago Canyon College.

After losing the league dual title, this was the perfect ending for this chapter of the South Coast League for the Hawks.

"I never really have pointed at any one person or thing," Laguna Hills coach Cliff Jarmie said. "We're always just trying to do the process right and let the outcome figure itself out.

"The process was to come out here at league finals and give our best performance. Period. Concentrate on the process, concentrate on putting your best performance out there no matter what and then the result will usually take care of itself."

That's exactly what the Hawks did. They had nine in the finals and six became champions — Martin Garcia at 106, Billy Brauberger at 126, Andre Cabrera at 152, Ray Cardona at 170, Peter Eggert at 220 and Jose Ballesteros at 285.

"The kids that came back and worked their way back to third, (Phillip) Zamora (113 pounds) a freshman, not really given much respect at the seeding meeting and works his way back to get third," Jarmie said. "(Alex) Collazo in a very tough weight class (132) gets third ... (Dominic) Larraga (182) ... Those kids, we scratched and clawed and they did what they needed to do to place."

San Clemente finished second with 174 points. The Tritons had 12 qualifiers. Dana Hills (144.5) and Aliso Niguel (125) placed third and fourth. The Dolphins had nine qualifiers and the Wolverines had seven.

Phillip O'Shea (Capistrano Valley) finished first at 182 pounds.

Trabuco Hills (238 points) won the Sea View League title, also at Aliso Niguel.

The Mustangs qualified 14 for the CIF-SS Inland Division Individual championships.
