Redwood High School's varsity wrestling team, seen here after a recent tournament, includes nine Tiburon boys: Michael Acquistapace, Sam Aronoff, Chris and Ryan Barcy, Murun Batjargal, Jake Dunn, Cole Ford, Ben Olsan and Brandon Trahms.

Tiburon athletes expected to have an impact on Redwood wrestling team


Redwood High School's wrestling team will look to capture a fourth consecutive Marin County Athletic League championship in 2017-2018 with a boost from nine Tiburon wrestlers — nearly a quarter of the team's 40-man roster.

Second-year coach Lochlan McHale said the team actively recruited over the summer to grow the roster from 17 team members last year.

"These guys have a bond like very few teams have," McHale said.

The team first wrestled Nov. 22 in a league novice tournament, meaning wrestlers who are new to the sport or did not record a top-three finish last year were eligible to participate. McHale said the other eight schools that participated brought about a dozen wrestlers each.

"We took 29 kids out," he said. "It was really exciting to triple every other school."

Broncos JV team goes 1-1, ties for third place at
Pop Warner Super Bowl

The Southern Marin Broncos JV football team had a strong showing at the Pop Warner Super Bowl in Florida last week, going 1-1 at an event that featured 83 of the best teams in the nation.
The Pop Warner Super Bowl is a week of football that includes tournaments at the Divison I through Division III levels. The Broncos qualified for the Division III junior varsity tournament alongside five other teams.

The Broncos got off to a great start in their first game Dec. 4 against Florida's East Manatee Bulldogs. It was a battle of smash-mouth football, and in the end Southern Marin was able to grind out the win, 18-16.

In their second game on Dec. 7, however, the Broncos faced off against the Berlin Seahawks of Maryland and were outgunned. The boys played tough but in the end it wasn't enough to secure a victory, and the Seahawks flew away with it, 39-14.

The Broncos finished in a tie for third place with East Manatee. The Seahawks tied for first with the Lehigh Raiders, playing out of Florida. Winless in the tournament were the Oswego Bears out of Illinois and California's Pasadena Trojans.

U10 girls soccer team sweeps Winter Shootout tournament Dec. 4

The Tiburon Peninsula Soccer Club Sharks U10 Red girls squad finished their season on a high note, taking the Futsal-style 5x5 Winter Shootout in Burlingame Dec. 4.

The tournament was a marathon effort for the girls, who played three games during the day to qualify for the championship game that same evening. The girls went 3-0 in qualifying matches to earn a spot in the title game, where they took on Santa Rosa United's U10 Gold girls team.

The championship game was a nail-biter, as the teams played to a tie through regulation. The game came down to penalty kicks and the Tiburon girls broke away, taking the Winter Shootout title 3-1.

The tournament was played by Futsal rules, with four players and a goalie on a smaller-than-usual field. Each Tiburon girl played goalie during the tournament, and every girl scored at least one goal.

The girls U10 Red team is Kate Batdorf, Cora Champommier, Scarlett Devlin, Shona Gallagher, Lucy Jeffers, Claire Johnson, Sadie Saavedra, Adela Tabak, Sydney Tunney and Lexi Wangenheim.
