Wrestling teams compete in tournament at Yokota

The CAJ high school and middle school wrestling teams competed at a tournament at Yokota Air Base on Saturday.

For the high school, Tai (148 pounds) and SungWon (180 pounds) both earned wins for CAJ. Coach Morris Yaegashi highlighted Tai's win as a great moment of the day.

"This was a historic win for our program," Yaegashi said. "It was Tai's first career win in several years with the team. It was a solid win, as he wrestled well. He went into the second period and improved on his mistakes from the first period. He was almost on his way to get his second win, too!"

In the middle school tournament, SeWon (two wins) and Xavier (three wins) both had victories.

Yaegashi added, "I'm looking forward to a good week of practice starting on Monday. I think we're understanding the importance of getting quality practice more and more, and how that leads to being ready to do the small things that lead to winning a match."

Below are the individual weight class tournament results for the high school:
115- Joe loses against St. Mary's in first round
122- Peter loses against ASIJ in first round
141- Kyong loses against Yokota in first round
148- Tai wins against ASIJ in first round, loses against Edgren in second round
148- Leo loses against Kinnick in first round
148- Amon loses against ASIJ in first round
180- SungWon gets first round bye, wins against Kinnick in semifinals, loses against ASIJ in finals

And these were the middle school win-loss results from their tournament:
SeWon- 2-1
Sejun- 0-2
Xavier- 3-0
Tyler- 0-2

The next wrestling event is the CAJ Wrestling Invite in the gym. The event will take place next Saturday.
