CHICO — Despite its relative lack of experience, the Davis High wrestling team showed well in its final tournament before Delta Valley Conference play opens on Wednesday.

Though no Blue Devil placed in the Joe Rios Memorial tournament in Chico on Saturday and Sunday, coach Ty Brown was happy with how the team looked overall.

“I thought it was a tough tournament, but it went really well,” Brown said. “We’ve got some things that we need to work on, but we went out there and accomplished what we need to accomplish to get better.”

Senior Marvin Grant (182 pounds) was the standout of the tournament for DHS, posting a 2-2 record.

Other impressive Devil wresters were senior twin brothers Adrian (138) and Elias (120) LoBuono-Gonzalez. Adrian went 2-2, while Elias was 1-1 before being forced to withdraw with a neck injury.

According to Brown, the injury wasn’t serious and Elias should be able to wrestle when Davis opens league play Wednesday (6 p.m.) against Laguna Creek at The Cage.

“(Elias) is rounding himself into form. Last year, he won a lot of matches and placed in about every tournament,” Brown said. “He was one match away last year from making the state tournament as a first-year wrestler. He’s still having success. He’s realizing that he’s not always going to be on the medal stand.”

Another Blue Devil bright spot in Chico was freshman Steven Holmes (106) picking up his first varsity victory.

While the overall tournament results weren’t exceptional, Brown was happy with what he saw, considering the squad’s inexperience:

“My son is 4 years old and he’s wrestled longer than most of our sophomores. The biggest thing (we need to do) is to practice hard and continue to work on attacking from the bottom. I felt like in those first few tournaments we were content to hide out from the bottom. We’re going to continue to hit that really, really hard and continue to tone our fundamentals.”
