Mar Vista High School Wrestlers Fail to Qualify for State but Mariners Have A Tremendous Season! South Bay League Title Highlight and Going Undefeated in League Highlight Season for Mariners.

The Mariners wrestling season is over as Christian and 
Julian Winnie failed to qualify for the 
 State Tournament this past weekend and Girls Wrestler, Sonia Benequid, the only State qualifier, did not place at the State Tournament for Girls wrestlers. Despite that it was a very successful season for the young wrestling team. They Won the South Bay League Title and went undefeated in league play.

Coach Ed de los Reyes stated: The Mariner Wrestling Team had a great season. We accomplished a lot with a young team. Our Head Coach Julio Garcia, and our Women's Coach Shyla Iokia-Murphy did a great job with what we had to work with......We can't wait for next season, but we will enjoy the break for a couple of weeks.

Coach Reyes went on to say "Mar Vista's Wrestling brothers did not make the State finals. The Coaches are proud of your efforts and for leaving everything on the mat. Great job."
