Despite a 7-6 loss in the finals of the Sutter Lions Club Under Armour Invitational, Davis High senior Marvin Grant (182 pounds) performed better than expected, upsetting Jed Johnson from the powerful Lowry program from Nevada on Saturday.

Lowry has won the past five Nevada state titles and placed a wrestler in all but two weight classes at last weekend’s event.

“This was a huge moment not only for Marvin, but for our program,” said Blue Devil wrestling coach Ty Brown.

Grant was one of two DHS wrestlers to place at the tournament as senior Elias LoBuono-Gonzalez (126) took fourth, losing a very even 1-0 match in the semifinals to the eventual division champion.

“It was a heartbreaking loss for Elias,” Brown said. “You lose to the kid who takes the tournament and that is, to some degree, a consolation, but at this point, Elias isn’t wrestling for consolation prizes.”

Devil senior Adrian LoBuono-Gonzalez made the semifinals after starting 2-0, but was forced to withdraw with a rib cartilage injury. Brown said his 134-pounder is day-to-day.

Among the other local standouts was sophomore Robbie Hughes (152), who picked up a varsity victory and finished 1-2 after going undefeated in the last JV tournament.

Davis’ three female wrestlers — Sasha Bohatch-Garcia (160), Lisa Ghiglieri (117) and Sienna Martinez (132) — were also in action last weekend, competing in the ASICS Napa Valley Girls Classic on Friday and Saturday.

The tournament drew more than 450 participants from different parts of the United States, including places as far away as Hawaii.

Though each of the girls went 0-2, Brown saw positives in the experience.

“For all the girls to even have the courage to show up and compete in this tournament, it shows a little bit about them,” Brown said. “All three girls were right there in terms of getting into the ‘W’ column, it was just one mistake here or one mistake there (that kept them from getting wins).”

The Blue Devils (1-0) take on Grant High School Wednesday in their second Delta Valley Conference meet.
