Sean Yamasaki of Dos Pueblos surprised the No. 1 seed in Saturday’s final to claim the 132-pound weight class at the Newbury Park Boys Wrestling Tournament.
Yamasaki was voted the Outstanding Wrestler of the lower weights after beating top seed Justin Mouritsen of Clovis 7-3 in the final. Mouritsen was fourth in the state last year at 113 pounds.
Other Charger medalists were Abraham Perdomo (3rd, 145 lbs); Oscar Phillips (5th, 153 lbs) and unseeded Emmanuel Golbin (5th, 182 lbs).
Dos Pueblos finished fifth out of 24 teams.
“I’m very pleased with this group of wrestlers,” said DP coach Kenny Breaux. “Our goal was to become a better disciplined wrestling team. Win or lose, this group held themselves accountable and learned from their failures to become a better version of themselves.”
The Chargers will host Cabrillo on Wednesday at 7 p.m.
Santa Ynez sent six wrestlers to Newbury Park and three earned medals. Richie Sandoval took first, Jose Rodriguez placed third and Mason Hammill was fifth.
Sandoval finished each of his three matches leading up to the finals in under one minute. He was down 3-0 in the final and rallied to win 8-4.
The Pirates will be home on Wednesday, taking on Santa Barbara High.
