TRINITY OREDINA

Alhambra High School junior Trinity Oredina (right) is this week’s Tribune Athlete of the Week, sponsored by Matthew C Rinn of State Farm.

Oredina came in second place in the girls North Coast Section Wrestling tournament in her weight class (106 pounds).

The junior came into the competition at Albany High School with a 17-3 overall record. Those efforts this season earned her a first-round bye in the NCS tournament.

When she did get into action, the Bulldog wrestler made an impressive start to her day.

Oredina beat her first opponent, Arine Kim, from Campolindo-Moraga in a major decision scored 18-10 to move on to the next round.

Oredina then defeated Alisha Narvaez of Arroyo-San Lorenzo, this time in a much tighter 7-3 decision.

In her next bout she took on Claire Payne of Ukiah, which she won via pin for the first time on the afternoon. Her pin came with 4:08.

In the final, Oredina’s run was stopped by An Vo of James Logan-Union City. The champion, Vo, is a senior who went 31-4 on the season.

Honorable mention goes to Hayley Ward, who came in fourth place in the heavyweight division. Both of her losses in the tournament came to Ukiah’s Kylee Winzler.

Alhambra’s wrestlers were once again at the mercy of their small side in their dual meet loss to Clayton Valley. But in contested matches, the Bulldogs will have been pleased with their six wins  and four losses.

The matches were starting to ebb toward the Clayton Valley side, and the result looked like it would be lopsided in favor of the Eagles.

But senior Brandon West’s match turned the tide of the meet quickly.

West started the match by scoring an early take down, but the two big men struggled to maintain the pace of the match, and the spent most of the first period battling for position.

But in the second period he settled in and it only took him 48 seconds to get the pin, and the first Alhambra win of the night.

On the other side of the spectrum from 220-pound West, was 106- pound Trinity Oredina, who followed up her teammates win with the second of the night for Alhambra.

Oredina did well to capitalize early on, and wasted no time earning points for a take down. But the first period ended in an even stalemate after her opponent also scored two points, one of which came in an escape.

However only a minute later the Bulldog wrestler was able to beat her opponent via pin in the second period.

Mikey Gargaro followed up that win with one of his own. The 113-pound Bulldog made even quicker work of his opponent, seemingly without breaking a sweat. Gargaro earned points for a take down, but didn’t need them, as he would win via pin only seconds later.

In what was the third match in a string of three wins, Damien Pergakis bested all other Alhambra wrestlers by only needing 24 seconds to get his pin.

Even Fabian Garcia’s win at 145 pounds couldn’t top the effort. Garcia’s pin took 44 seconds, but was impressively worked as he turned a quick reversal into a fast pin.

In the final match of the evening Dustin DeLuca came from behind to take care of business on the night for the Bulldogs.

DeLuca was trailing 4-1 in the second period when he rallied and reversed his opponents take down directly into a near fall. It only took the 152- pound grappler a couple of extra seconds before his opponent was down for the count.

The Bulldog wrestlers will take on Northgate in their final DAL dual on Feb. 8, 2017.
