Los Gatos: Escudero wins CCS title, heads to state wrestling tourney

Published Thursday March 2

…and earn a trip to the prestigious CIF High School State Wrestling Finals to be held at Rabobank…

Alexander Escudero wasn’t the top ranked 145-pounder when the Central Coast Section wrestling tournament began last Fri at Independence High School—in fact, he was sitting in the No. four spot in the section rankings in the weight class.

That didn’t seem to bother the Los Gatos junior much, though. Because while he may have been No. four heading into the tourney, he was No. 1 by the time it ended.

Escudero, a two-time Santa Clara Valley Athletic League champion, was just 2-2 as a freshman and 3-2 as a sophomore at the section finals, but he swept through the field to win the gold medal in his weight class.

Wiley wrapped up the season with a 29-7 record.
