This week’s ADAC game of the week includes Terra Nova High school wrestling versus our Burlingame Panthers. Burlingame is currently sitting at 1-0 in league play and 2-0 overall while Terra Nova is 0-1. Terra Nova has been a mainstay of the PAL and there have been many great battles between the two schools. Today’s contest had the making of another classic. Emmi Kate got the night started off right with a big pin. JV boys were up next and it was a clean sweep. The varsity picked up right where the JV left off and continued to dominate throughout most of the meet. Evan Jones is our ADAC player of the game as he made quick work of his opponent with a dominating pin. Evan accomplished all of this while wrestling 2 weight classes above his actual weight.
Burlingame has been a consistent contender under head coach Eric Botelho. Coach Botelho credits his assistant coaches and the hard work and dedication of the young men and women in which he works with year around. “Our coaches and kids are willing to put in the work”, Coach Botelho says, and this is exactly why the BHS wrestling program is among the best. The Panthers travel to San Mateo next Thursday as they look to stay undefetated.
