Ryan Fidel and Aidan Yamasaki continue to prove that they are forces to be reckoned with on the mat for Dos Pueblos.

Each wrestler went undefeated on Saturday at the Brea Olinda Ed Spring Classic to win their respective weight classes (132 pounds for Yamasaki and 138 for Fidel).

Yamasaki was named middleweight MVP and Fidel defended his title from last year, where he won at the 126- class.

Kade Uyesaka and Erick Nisich also had strong showings, each placing third in the 113- and 285- classes, respectively. Both wrestlers battled back from early losses to place.

Dos Pueblos finished third out of 32 competing teams. 

"We won seven out of eight of our medal matches in the final round which was a huge improvement of last Saturday, where we only won one of our final eight," said Dos Pueblos coach Anthony Califano.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
