Athletics Update
Boys Wrestling Season Success
In the MCAL championships, six of the seven Boys Wrestling team members placed in the tournament. Seniors Braulio Resendiz and Andrew Savedra took first place. Senior Declan Mylett and junior Deybi Maldonado took second place. Freshman Edward DeLeon took third and freshman Jonah Glickstein took 5th.

The NCS Championships were held February 24-25, and again the SR wrestlers did very well.   Andrew Savedra earned a medal by placing eighth out of 40 wrestlers in his weight class. This was the first medal earned by a San Rafael wrestler since 1998 and one of only three earned by all MCAL wrestlers this year! Declan Mylett and Braulio Resendiz also had outstanding tournaments, placing in the top 12 of 40 wrestlers in their weight classes, falling just short of earning medals themselves. Overall, Bulldog wrestlers won 11 matches at this very competitive tournament. Great job and great season boys!
