The TOC (Tournament of Champions) State Wrestling Championships for Middle school had several Desmond wrestlers qualify to participate. That, in and of itself, is an accomplishment worth noting. However, 4 of our wrestlers placed in the Top 8 in the state!! They were:
Cy Philp - 8th Place
Tayte Grantham - 8th place
Abel Cardenas - 8th place
AND for the first time in Desmond School History.....we have a CHAMPION at 205lbs in the state of California!!
Marcos Torrez - 1st place Champion
These boys fought hard and beat some quality competition this weekend. To become Champion, Marcos beat a wrestler from Clark Intermediate!! Which feeds into Clovis High (#5 ranked wrestling team in the nation). Pretty Amazing stuff from our Longhorn Athletes!! Great Job!!
