The Skyline wrestling team gave up four forfeits in their home-game loss against Fresno City College on Oct. 19, 2016.

The team entered the meet with injuries in three weight classes and a hole in the 174 weight class. Skyline wrestled hard, but only managed to win two out of five matches for the night.

“This time of the season guys get a little broken down mentally and physically,” coach James Haddon said. “Wrestling is a tough sport. Its hard on the body. Its hard on the mind. So yeah, A few guys are beat up a little bit.”

Anthony Andrighetto almost got the first win of the night but failed to secure a takedown in the final seconds. Andrighetto was in full control throughout the matchup but began to fade in the third period. One last takedown would have secured the win, but his opponent was able to sprawl and circle around to steal it.

Dupra Goodman sealed another dominating win to keep his strong season going. Goodman is currently ranked seventh in the state and is expecting a big run to become an All American.

“My goal is to be an All American,” Goodman said. “Mentally I’m there, and physically I have all the tools to get top four in state.”

Heavyweight David Corona was the other wrestler to secure a win. Corona outlasted his opponent in what was a back and forth contest.

In less than a month Skyline will head to the Coast Conference tournament where they must perform well to advance to the regional tournament.

“We’re sticking it out and overcoming tremendous adversity,” team captain Brady Green said. “The most important thing is our goals for the end of the season; winning at regionals, qualifying for state, and becoming All Americans.”
