Panthers Wrestling Team Seeks Another State Championship

SCC’s Wrestling Team is ranked No. 4 in California, and recently won the Cuesta College Tournament, outperforming No. 2 Mount San Antonio and No. 5 Palomar in the process.

Freshman Kaleio Romero continued his perfect season with 4 wins – all by pin – in the 157-pound division to win the championship. Kaleio was named Outstanding Lightweight of the tournament, and moved to 16-0 on the season.

Also winning the championship was 165 pounder Dylan Forzani, a sophomore from Salinas. Forzani improved his record to 16-2 after his four wins at Cuesta. He has been in the finals of all four tournaments this year.

The wrestling team will host Lassen College in a Big 8 conference match at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 4 in the North Gymnasium.
