The boys Mariner wrestlers didn't do so well at the CIF Dual meet. The eight wrestlers that the team brought to the tournament left everything on the mat but unfortunately missing six wrestlers put them at a great disadvantage. However, despite missing 6 team members the Boys Wrestling Team still finished in fifth place.
The Lady Mariner wrestlers CIF, who win the South Bay League fared went much better than the boy grapplers at the Dual Meet! Sonia Banequid brought home a Silver Medal and qualified for the State tournament. Melissa Sesma , and Melissa Martinez both brought home Bronze but did not qualify for the State Finals.
