LADY TITANS - The Lady Titan wrestlers made their debut alongside the boys in Jan 15th home meet, with freshman Raya Christensen, sophomore Kaitlyn Kelly, and senior Fernanda Moreno all competing well against experienced wrestlers. Big snaps go out to junior Aaliyah Terrazas who became the first girl wrestler for Arcadia to not only win a match, but to earn a pin when she pinned her opponent from Youngker 50 seconds into the third period. Get that snap, Aaliyah!

MEN TITANS - Congratulations to your Titan wrestlers who competed January 15th against tough sectional competitions. Freshman Thomas Farrar wrestled well in his varsity debut. Freshman Michael Whipple and senior Jack Hunt each pinned one opponent, while freshman Emilio DuComb and Junior Jake Waltz had two pins each. Sophomore Abel Sandoval led the boys team with three bonus point wins. Job, boys!
