Williams gets his state title

first_imgHe accomplished his mission Saturday night by winning the 112-pound class during the CIF state wrestling championships at Rabobank Arena. He is the first South Hills competitor to score a state title since Jeremiah Miller pulled the trick at 171 pounds in 1992. BAKERSFIELD – Losing usually is thought of as a bad thing in competitive athletics. But for South Hills High School wrestler Thomas Williams, a setback earlier this season provided the necessary motivation to win a CIF state individual title. “It feels awesome (to win a state title). I worked my whole life for this.” Williams was one of six area wrestlers to place. Also scoring top-eight medals were San Dimas Angel Garcia (third at 119), West Covina’s A.J. Guardado (seventh at 135) and George Munoz (fifth at 152), Northview’s Steve De La Fuente (seventh at 140) and Rosemead’s Anthony Gonzalez (sixth at heavyweight). Garcia, who was 6-1 for the tournament, followed up a loss in the semifinals on Saturday by earning third place with wins over Poway’s Mike Hernandez and Silver Creek’s Andre Gonzalez. “It’s great,” Garcia said. “I just can’t believe it. It’s a nice feeling. You train the whole year to get ready for this tournament and give your best. That’s what I did. I gave my best.” Garcia, who went 4-0 on Friday to advance to the semifinals, saw his quest at a state title end with a tough 9-5 loss to Santa Ana Calvary Chapel’s Jason Lara. He took an early 2-0 lead in the match, but Lara came back with a pair of takedowns for a 6-3 lead before getting a third in the final period to win, 9-5. “I was down (after losing in the semifinals),” Garcia said. “But I was able recoup and had to go after it. “I lost (in the semifinals), but its a good accomplishment to lose and then come back and finish third.” Munoz also came up big in recovering from a loss in the quarterfinals on Friday to go 3-1 on Saturday and take fifth place. It’s the second time in three years that a West Covina wrestler has placed at the state championships in the past three seasons. The Bulldogs’ Guardado took seventh at 135 by winning two of three matches on Saturday. He beat Simi Valley’s Mike Murphy in the fifth consolation round before losing, 10-1, to Madera’s Johny Rios in the third-place quarterfinals. He rebounded to score an 11-5 win over Natomas’ Jerin Miller in the seventh-place match. Northview’s De La Fuente, who brought an undefeated record and a top ranking into this weekend’s event, fought back from a loss in the second round on Friday to finish seventh at 140. The day was not very kind to Rosemead’s Anthony Gonzalez, who after winning four matches on Friday to earn a spot in the semifinals, went 0-3 on the final day to finish sixth. Three area wrestlers – West Covina’s Taylor Louie (103), Bishop Amat’s Steven Espindola (112) and Diamond Bar’s Marcus Johnson (215) – lost in the morning and failed to qualify for a medal. steve.ramirez@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3061 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

You’re all set!center_img “That loss (at the CIF-Southern Section Coastal Division championships) changed my whole outlook,” said Williams, who finished the season 52-1. “I probably wouldn’t have won here tonight if I didn’t lose that match. “It really made me re-focus and really look at my goals hard.” The No. 1 goal was to win the state title, which he came close to winning last season at 103 pounds. He got the job done this time by first scoring a 4-2 decision over Bakersfield’s Nektoe Demison in the semifinals before winning 5-2 over Pleasanton Foothill’s Kellen Aura in the finals. Williams took the lead with a takedown at 1:02 of the second period. Aura used an escape to cut the deficit to 2-1 late in the period before Williams countered with an escape and a takedown in the third to win, 5-2. “I couldn’t do anything (early in the match),” Williams said. “But he started to wear down near the end, and I was able to get the takedown. last_img read more
