The Los Banos Tigers boys wrestling team brought home the blue banner for the first time since 2015. The boys team traveled to Lincoln High School in Stockton on January 28. Marthell Buenrostro, Elijah Guevara, Brockton Borelli, Larry Borelli, Raymond Fernandez, Cody Ruiz all were selected to 1st Team All League. The girls were also awarded WAC Champions as well. The girls selected to 1st team all league girls are Crystal Hernandez, Laura Dupuch, Lilly Kanemoto, Kiara Daniels, and Mikayla Mendoza.

“It feels great, you know just putting in all the work and seeing it all come full circle and just seeing everything fall into place just shows that the hard work is paying off,” Raymond Fernandez stated after being asked on how it felt winning a blue banner.  He has been wrestling for four years.

When asked what it takes to win, he responded, “It takes getting into the room everyday and perfecting my craft and just getting stronger and faster everyday.”

The final question that he was asked was how he felt about his team and he showed his leadership, “All my guys have really improved and it shows, We bang every practice and get each other better. It’s working because we all pounced and brought home that blue banner baby.”

The Los Banos wrestling team has a subsection at Casa Robles on February 11,2023.
