Rancho Santa Fe School wrestling team caps a great season


The R. Roger Rowe School wrestling team just finished its best season in several years as each member of the team placed at the Big 8 League’s wrestling championships on Feb. 22.

Rancho Santa Fe finished fourth out of five teams at the tournament, a big accomplishment given that its seven-member team was the smallest team in the competition — the top two teams had 30 or more members and the next smallest to Rancho Santa Fe’s team had more than 20 wrestlers.

Teams gain points for having wrestlers at each weight class placing and RSF forfeits many points because its team is so small. R. Roger Rowe’s team needed great results from each wrestler and the team got them.

Julian Shearer placed first in the 90 pounds class; Zach Kindel placed fourth in 100 pounds; Conrad Delgado placed second in 110 pounds; Nick Persico placed third in 110 pounds; Seth Rossier placed third in 128 pounds; Aidan McGeehan placed fourth in 135 pounds; and Danny Burns Brewster placed fourth in 155 pounds.
