FOUNTAIN VALLEY — The Brawley Union High School wrestling team tied for 10th place in a 68-team field at the Five Counties tournament here.
David Villagran was the Wildcats' top finisher, placing fourth with a 6-2 record in the 103-pound division.
Also placing for Brawley were 119-pounder Jose Reyes, who took sixth, Hector Carrillo, who finished seventh in the 140-pound weight class and heavyweight Jose Gutierrez, who finished eighth.
Said Wildcat assistant coach Tony Leon: "Some of our guys were a little disappointed with how they finished, but they just realized they need to work a little harder.
"This is almost a miniature state tournament for them. I think this is probably the toughest tournament we've been to all year."
