Lassen County Times, Westwood PinePress Tuesday, Nov. 23, 2010 IB Cougars look to dominate at state level Kayleen Taylor Sports Editor ktaylor@lassennews.com The Lassen College wrestling team has struggled to find its way after a coach- ing change early in the season and small numbers, but the Cougars have managed to put the season into their favor with three of the six wrestlers contending for a spot in the state tournament. "I feel I have pretty big shoes to fill, living up to Lassen College's past coaches Rex Branuem and Dave Fos- ter. Both coaches have won National and State Champi- onships," said Tom Rogers, head coach for the Cougars. "The learning curve here was pretty big at first but I'm get- :ling a hand on it now." ' Rogers said the competition the Cougars have faced so far in the season has been diffi- cult but the team has been doing well. .In a tournament at South- west Oregon University com- plete with Division I schools, the Cougars placed four out of the top eight at the tourna- ment. Marcial Rodriguez, Josh Wood, Christian White and A.J. Estrada all placed in the tournament and Rogers said the Southwestern Oregon tournament was "by far the stiffest competition" the Cougars have faced so far. The Cougars suffered some injuries in the toughest tour- nament they've had so far but Rogers said his team should be healthy by the time the Cougars make it to the re- gional match on Saturday, Dec. 4 in Sacramento, Calif. Rogers said in order to qualify for state, his wrestlers need to place in the top six at the regional match to move onto the state tournament. Rodriguez has the most pins for the Cougars so far and Rogers said he is an hon- orable mention to place at state. "Joe Madison is sixth in state right now at 165 (pounds), so I'm expecting both (Madison and Ro- driguez) to surely move on," said Rogers. "One or two of the guys (will) hopefully 00EBI I Cl.k =Is out on e _oennom Mike Sepulveda pins his opponent from Sac City for the Lassen College wrestling home match Friday, Nov. 12 at the LCC gym, Photo by Patrick Shillito (sneak) in and qualify for the state tournament." Since the Cougars have only six wrestlers, the team has had to give up forfeit points because they are un- able to fill some of the spots during duals. "It's kind of hard to win a dual with only six guys, but all in all I think the guys wrestled pretty well," said Rogers. "We still have to im- prove on a couple little things, and it's the little things that make the differ- ence between a good wrestler and a great wrestler." Rogers said he is looking forward to next year to fill up more spots for his team. "I have been recruiting and have two new kids coming in at semester from as far away as Florida and one as close as Westwood," said Rogers. "I am planning on about twenty to thirty kids next season."
