“The wrestling season went very well and our team accomplished a lot,” Young said. “I’m excited to go with my team to my first CIF and hopefully qualify for masters.”


Cahill said he was fortunate to have spent this season with such a supportive team.


“I feel pretty good going into CIF since the whole team has pushed each other hard this whole season making all of us a lot better,” Cahill said. It is Cahill’s second year qualifying for CIF.


Ruiz, Young, Cahill and Butler will be heading off to CIF SS Finals on Feb. 16.
