Wrestling: Long Beach Poly Girls Force Three-Way League Title With Wilson, Millikan

Everything came together for Long Beach Poly last week as Athziri Guizar and the Jackrabbits defeated Millikan 46-36 to force a three-way Moore League title tie between Millikan, Wilson and Poly.  

Along with a pin by Guizar, Reighlene Valdez, Kristin Comia and Dalila Precielo came up with big pins that put the match in Poly’s favor. 

Fundraiser For 562 Wrestling Coverage, organized by Mike Guardabascio wants to dramatically increase wrestling coverage for 2022-23 but we weren’t able to find a sport sponsor to help us do so. Sport sponsorships have helped us increase coverage for football, volleyball, and other sports so far this year.

“It’s truly magical to see it all come together,” Poly coach Ken Lee said. “It’s something we’ve been working on all year with our girls. Some of our girls–we have a four-year senior and we have a senior that’s in her first year. So, our skill level is wide and vast, but we’re all able to put it together and push toward a common goal. It was a tough match. Millikan is always up with boys and girls and it was nice to be able to walk away with that and see our girls’ work hard and perform well under that pressure.”

The girls Moore League finals will be at Poly next Thursday and the CIF playoff brackets will be released at 1 p.m.
