FAIRFIELD — Davis High seniors Marvin Grant (182 pounds) and Elias LoBuono-Gonzalez (126) each placed for the second consecutive wrestling tournament, as the former finished third while the latter was a runner-up at the Armijo Invitational on Saturday.

In addition to the usual top performers, some of the younger Blue Devils posted positive results, showing the team’s continued development under coach Ty Brown.

DHS sophomore Jonathan Desideri (170) finished a perfect 4-0 to win his weight class in the JV portion of the tournament.

“Jonathan will probably make his (varsity) debut against Franklin,” Brown said. “He’s still in that developmental stage where he’s trying to figure things out, but he’s a kid who’s used to winning and has a winning type of mentality.”

Brown cited Desideri’s experience winning with the DHS water polo team as another reason why he likely will be moved up to varsity when the Devils take on the Wildcats on Wednesday at 6 p.m. at The Cage.

And Desideri wasn’t the only local JV wrestler to show improvement. Sophomore David Flores (162) finished with a 3-2 record to place fourth, rounding out the Davis athletes to reach the medal stand.

Other Blue Devils standouts included Sasha Bohatch-Garcia (160) and Sienna Martinez (132). Bohatch-Garcia finished 2-2 while Martinez finished 0-2, but both female wrestlers lost their matches by just one point.

“I was really proud of our girls and the way they competed,” Brown said. “Sasha is showing tons of growth. She overcame some elbows to the eye Friday evening. We’re really starting to persevere and overcome obstacles.”

Another obstacle DHS may have to overcome is the nagging rib cartilage injury that has continued to bother senior Adrian LoBuono-Gonzalez (138), causing him to miss last week’s win over Grant and the Armijo Invitational.

LoBuono-Gonzalez is a still listed as day-to-day, but Brown isn’t worried.

“We respect every opponent, but we fear no one,” Brown said of the powerful Franklin program. “We’re going to swing our swords. We’ve got to continue to stay within ourselves. We’ve got to continue to wrestle Blue Devil-style wrestling.”
