It was the most dominating performance at the CIF San Diego Section Division III wrestling tournament Saturday and maybe one of the most dominating ever.
What Brawley Union High School's Hector Carrillo accomplished is almost mind-boggling. In four matches at CIF the 142-pounder recorded four pins, all in the first minute, and only wrestled a combined 3 minutes, 22 seconds on his way to a CIF crown.
Had an outstanding wrestler award been handed out, there's no doubt Carrillo would have won it easily.
Carrillo helped the Wildcats to their first CIF title in the 25-year coaching career of Keith Smith. Brawley won with 287.5 points, more than 40 more than second-place Ramona High.
Many wrestlers would be enthused about such individual accomplishments, but Carrillo took a "whatever" approach to his individual championship.
"It really didn't mean that much to me because I knew I'd walk through it. I usually get nervous before tournaments and matches, but I wasn't even nervous at all for this," said the 17-year-old senior. "The tournament was all right. It wasn't the hardest I've been to this year. I think Five Counties was a lot tougher."
