DP girls wrestling takes part in Lady Eagle Invitational
The Dos Pueblos girls wrestling team appeared at the Lady Eagle Invitational on Saturday at John Glenn High School, sending a wrestler to the championship finals.
Victoria Bernard finished second in the event, pinning Chaparal’s Brelynn Smith in 15 seconds and John Glenn’s Urena Andrea in 48 seconds. She followed up these wins with a victory by tech fall over Buena’s Mallely Perez Diaz, but fell in the final round to San Fernando’s Hailee Moreno.
“Victoria continued to open it up with some dominant wins en route to the finals,” said Dos Pueblos Coach Matthew Bernard. “Though the finals did not go her way, she learned some things that will only make her stronger and that much more of a fierce competitor.”
Alyssa Warner filed to place after taking a pair of losses in the event, but Bernard said she “continues to get better every single week.
“Her physical and mental toughness continues to grow,” Bernard said of Warner. “She continues to go out there, try things, and push her limits. That’s everything a coach could ask for.”
