Triggas takes sixth at Big Ten Championships

And you thought I wouldn’t be able to find wrestling news in the offseason… A quick scan of the results from this past weekend’s Big Ten Championships shows that Campolindo grad Nikko Triggas finished sixth at 125 pounds. Triggas, who has been in the lineup all year for the Buckeyes, lost 13-5 to Illinois’ Gabe Flores in the fifth-place match.

Also, keep your eye on the upcoming Dapper Dan Tournament, the prestigous Pennsylvania vs. USA tournament. Las Lomas’ Jason Welch will be the USA’s 160-pounder. That tournament kicks off this weekend.

With wrestling tailing off, I’ll have more softball than you can shake a stick here on the East Bay Prep Sports blog. This weekend the season begins in earnest with the Queen of the Mountain tournament at Willow Pass Park in Concord. I’ll have a preview in the paper later this week as well as some commentary here on the blog.
