Seeding is set as Devils prepare for DVC wrestling finals

While Davis High wrestling coach Ty Brown has been preparing his team for Saturday’s Delta Valley Conference championship meet for months, it was only Thursday night that he learned how each of his wrestlers was going to be seeded in the tournament, which will be contested at Laguna Creek.

Not surprisingly, the Blue Devil Big Three — Marvin Grant (184 pounds) and Adrian (140) and Elias LoBuono-Gonzalez (122) — each got strong No. 2 seeds at their respective weight classes.

“This could be the last go-around with these guys,” Brown said of his senior stars. “The best part about that is we have control over it. We’re going to wrestle this weekend like it’s our last week of wrestling. You never know which one is going to be the last one.”

One of the surprises for DHS is senior Bailey Murray (285), who was seeded No. 3 despite being in his first year of wrestling.

“There is no clear-cut favorite in the heavyweight division,” Brown said. “Bailey’s got as good of a chance as anyone to leave Saturday as the Delta Valley Conference champion.”

Devil sophomore Tanner Carr (third at 172) and junior Connor Spann (fourth at 162) also picked up high seeds.

“(We’ve) got a good chance of getting quite a few guys qualified (for the Sac-Joaquin Section divisional meet),” Brown said. “The seeding is out of the way, so now we’re just waiting for Saturday to put this all in action.”

The top four wrestlers from each weight class at the DVC championships will advance to the divisional tournament set for Feb. 21-22 at Franklin High.

“(The DVC tournament) is a great way to get the postseason underway,” Brown said. “It builds a memory that is going to be with (the wrestlers) for forever. Being a league champion, winning your conference, is a big, big deal.”

Regardless of what happens, though, Brown will remain positive.

“We’re just going to enjoy every moment,” Brown said. “A lot of times these kids are caught up in the competition and focused on doing well that they don’t take the time to enjoy the moment.”

Note: Four Blue Devils wrestled their way to the SJS divisional last year, a number Brown hopes to top in 2014.
