In a match between perhaps the two best teams in the East Bay Athletic League, Foothill edged out Granada 30-27 on Tuesday night.
At 125 pounds, two of the best wrestlers in the North Coast Section battled it out, with Granada’s Sean Jackson coming away with a 6-3 win over Foothill’s Phil Boyer. In the California Wrestler’s Newsletter’s latest NCS rankings, Boyer was second and Jackson third at 125. The CWN is currently putting together new NCS rankings. Boyer also placed fourth last weekend in the prestigious Five Counties Invitational.
Two other teams to look out for in the EBAL are California and Livermore. California defeated Amador Valley 55-15 and Livermore topped San Ramon Valley 52-27 on Wednesday.
California, Foothill and Livermore are all 2-0 and Granada 2-1 in the EBAL standings. Amador Valley and Monte Vista are 0-2 and San Ramon Valley 0-3 in EBAL duals. So who do you think will end up winning the EBAL dual title?
Foothill has three of the top individuals in Kellen Aura (103), Boyer and Tommy Wipfli (130). All three placed at Five Counties. Jackson has led Granada and California’s Jason Welsh is ranked second in the NCS by CWN at 135. Considering that, who do you think will have the highest team score in the EBAL individual championships?
