Prep Wrapup: Riordan wrestling drops WCAL opener to St. Francis

Prep Wrapup is our new feature where we will hopefully provide a broad overview of the previous day’s action. Coaches, to contribute to the Prep Wrapup, please send scores and details the night of the game/event to or call our scores line at (415) 251-0918.

Wrestling: St. Francis 42, Riordan 26

The Crusaders won half of the matches wrestled, but due to weight-related forfeits, Riordan surrendered 12 points and fell to the Central Coast Sections second-ranked team.

Riordan wrestlers Alejandro Gomez, Zac Contreras, and Alfred Remulla all pinned their opponents, while Julian Morrisette, Deion Deng, and Brandon Jew all won by decisions.

The Crusaders are ranked ninth in the CCS and will continue WCAL play against Mitty on Wednesday.

    Its really unfortunate that it seems that ARHS is going through a rough patch across the board. Of course the student-athletes are victims of their current and previous administration’s errors and short comings. I cant come on to SFPreps without having to read something negative about ARHS. Hopefully they can turn it around. They are my 2nd favorite catholic HS in SF. …. Now this post wouldnt be complete without me saying that if this happened at SI….. ehhhh, GOOD! Let them rot! … Go Aaron Gordon and 5 posterizing dunks tonight!

    It certainly is going to take some time to rebuild the entire athletic program after years of decline and neglect. I do like the direction the school is going (except for the admin gaffe).

    Nice little synopsis on Riordan’s match with St. Francis. Great to see wrestling get some scoring coverage on SFPreps. Riordan has arguably the best wrestler in SF since Ali Lockett of Washington wrestled back in 03′. Zach Contreras at 145 (138?) has the physical skills and mental fortitude to place at this years State Meet, as well as the pedigree (dad was a 2 time champion from Balboa in 79′ and 80′ and later wrestled at Skyline College). Looking forward to seeing how he does at MidCals in Gilroy later this month.

    The AAA will begin their season on Tuesday the 10th with various matches taking place citywide. 4 Time Defending Champion and favorite to win this years round robin/All City titles Washington, returns three AAA champs in Eric Royfman (113), Brandon Tran (120) and Kent Lau (195). In addition, Virgil Lockett’s matmen return a host of runner-up finishers who look to capture titles and put a stamp as the dominant program in the AAA.

    Although there may not be a AAA team who will challenge the Eagles, there are many other outstanding individual wrestlers from other schools who will take aim at claiming an All City title and a trip to Bakersfield. Good luck to all the wrestlers as you begin your quest for a trip to toughest state wrestling tournament in the country.
