Logan's Colts dominated the Mission Valley Athletic League MVAL wrestling championship, February 16, winning the team title with 252.5 points. Mission San Jose finished in second place with a respectable showing at 114 points; American High rounded out the top three with 100.5 points.
The outcome was no surprise as Logan was the MVAL team to beat this year, showing strength in all divisions this year. The Colts moved wrestlers into 11 championship matches and one consolation match. Logan's Artemio Flores, ranked ninth in the State by californiawrestler.com, was impressive in the 126-pound division and Clayton Hartwell dominated with a pin in the 195-pound class. Junior Jacob Macalolooy, three-time league champion, continued his dominance of the 138-pound division.
A big surprise of the day was the Kennedy High School upset and first league champion since 2002. In a phenomenal effort, Darius Wells outmaneuvered Logan's Shoaib Rasooli, 6-4, in the 182-pound division.
