End of the line for DHS wrestling stars

For the past few years, no one could mention Davis High wrestling without quickly naming Marvin Grant, Adrian LoBuono-Gonzalez and Elias LoBuono-Gonzalez.

This will no longer be the case as all three seniors failed to advance out of the Sac-Joaquin Section Masters Tournament this weekend at Stockton Sports Arena.

“We wrestled pretty tough this weekend,” said DHS coach Ty Brown. “It was bittersweet seeing the careers end for three of the finest wrestlers we’ve ever seen at this program.”

Of the three, only Elias LoBuono-Gonzalez was close to qualifying for the state championships as he finished in the top 12 of the 122-pound bracket, while beating one of the athletes who eventually made the semifinals.

None of the Devil graduating seniors have decided yet if they’re going to continue their wrestling careers, with Grant looking closely at possibly wrestling for Sacramento City College or Shasta College.

The LoBuono-Gonzalez twins are waiting for their college acceptance letters before they decide if they’re going to continue on the mat.

“We just want to thank the seniors for everything they’ve done,” Brown said. “It’s been a magical ride. We’re proud to have been a part of these kids’ lives and have them be a part of the program.”

The loss of those seniors will be felt as next year’s Davis squad will be young and inexperienced.

“We’re going to re-tool and re-load,” Brown said. “We’re going to go out there and recruit. We’ve got a fantastic class of eighth-graders (in Brown’s club wrestling program).”

One thing Brown won’t have to worry about anytime soon is the 195-pound bracket, where freshman Ismael Perez managed to win a match at the Masters tournament despite being the only ninth-grader in his 32-man bracket.

“Ismael has nothing but the stars in front of him,” Brown said.
