Eagles, Matadors a success at CIF

The Granite Hills Eagles at CIF



The Granite Hills Eagles will be sending nine wrestlers to Masters after finishing fourth as a team in the always tough San Diego Section CIF Division II tournament.

The Eagles were led by Jeremiah Satberry who placed second in the 184-pound weight class.

Head Coach Jesse Sheard feels his wrestlers are peaking at the right time.

The coaching staff was very impressed with sophomore Justin Carroll placing third despite being seeded 10th and freshman Tanner Vielguth placing seventh as the 15th seed.

The biggest win of the tournament for the Eagles was by Satberry in the semis against Poway’s Braden Pease. Satberry clinched his spot in the finals by defeating Pease 12-10 in overtime with a takedown.

Bryce Christian, 140, helped Granite Hills get much needed bonus points by pinning three of his opponents. He was very pleased with his team’s performance.

“I had a slow start but in the later rounds of the tournament I knew I would have to wrestle better if I wanted to place higher than what I was seeded and make it to masters,” Christian said. “Our team did extremely well. We had nine people make it to masters and we finished fourth as a team which is better than we have done in a while in CIF”.

Coach Sheard echoed the same praise for his team.

“As coaches we were proud of how our wrestlers battled this weekend,” Sheard said. “We have to keep it rolling into Masters and we are hoping to get a couple to qualify for state.”
