two men wrestle
BC wrestled hard on day one of the CCCAA Championships and advanced five to the semifinals.

The California Community College Athletic Association Wrestling Championship is one of, if not THE, most competitive junior college wrestling tournaments in the country and five of BC's seven entrants enter today's final day of competition with a chance at claiming it's top prize.

133 pounder Pedro Corona, 149 pounder Emmett Kuntz, 184 pounders Adrian Godinez and Jeremy Maas, and 197 pounder Zavion Roberson are all still in the running for a top-two finish after going undefeated in day one of the two day tournament. 

Heavyweight Ramiro Macias lost his opening round match in a 3-2 decision, but rallied back to win his next match and is in the semi-finals of the consolation bracket. 

Brayden Riley lost two matches at 157 pounds on decisions to end his run for a medal. 

Kuntz, winner of the SoCal Regional Championship, defeated Rio Hondo's Khalil Howard for a second time in two weeks. Howard quickly pinned Kuntz following a throw earlier this season, and the BC 149 pounder never forgot it. 

"Yeah, he pinned me actually in the first period. I was seeking revenge, and I knew I was good enough to do that," Kuntz said following his Regionals victory. 

Kuntz will face Santa Rosa's Blake Boswell in Semifinals action today.
