San Clemente Times
There was one number lingering above the heads of the Triton wrestlers when they entered their gym to play visiting league rival Laguna Hills on December 18.
The number, 25, was the consecutive years in which their opponent, the Hawks, had not lost a league match. It was a daunting figure that San Clemente head coach Mark Calentino kept returning to in the buildup to the showdown between the league’s top two teams.
In the end the only numbers that mattered were 31-29, the final tally that had San Clemente on top, breaking their opponents long standing record and giving them an edge in the competitive South Coast League.
The Tritons will now take that momentum to Las Vegas, where they will compete in the Las Vegas Invitational from December 21 to December 22.
