With each passing round of the postseason, the competition gets tougher. And so do the Davis High wrestlers.

At Saturday’s Sac-Joaquin Section tournament, contested at Pitman High in Stockton, three Blue Devils — sophomore Marvin Grant and junior brothers Adrian and Elias LoBuono-Gonzalez — performed well enough to advance to this weekend’s Masters meet.

Adrian LoBuono-Gonzalez nearly cracked the medal stand before eventually taking fifth place at 128 pounds. He won four of his six bouts, including an 8-6 sudden-victory decision over Merced’s Joseph White in the fifth-place match.

At 197 pounds, Grant won three-of-five encounters including a 3-2 victory over Bishane Segal (Oak Ridge) in the seventh-place match.

“The guts Adrian showed to take the placement match in overtime and then for Marvin to do the same (was) just amazing,” said DHS head coach Ty Brown. “(And) to do it against this level of competition is awesome.

“Adrian was three seconds away from wrestling for third, and Marvin was a scramble away from being in the same position.”

The third Devil qualifier, Elias LoBuono-Gonzalez, is in just his first season wrestling. He won two bouts at 108 pounds before losing a close 6-4 decision to Merced’s Adam Vargas in the eighth-place match.

Though Brown knows the Davis trio will face even tougher competition at the Masters meet, which begins Friday at Stockton Arena, he says his guys have all the tools to success:

“(It will be) another big challenge this week, (but) we feel real good about this group, our parent support has been amazing and I can’t say enough about our support structure. Our team has done well. We have a lot of youth in the room and they’re hungry for success.”

Speaking of youth, Blue Devil sophomore Deven Sanchez and freshman Quinn Davies also competed at sections.
