The CIF state wrestling championships are set for Friday and Saturday at Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield.
The Valencia brothers from St. John Bosco, Anthony and Zahid, are trying to become the 20th and 21st wrestlers in state history to win three state championships.
Anthony competes at 170 pounds and Zahid at 182 pounds.
The finals are set for 7:15 p.m. on Saturday
Get ready for the weekly watch to see how far Matt Katnik of St. John Bosco can send a shot put through the air.
In his first meet last week, he set a school record with a mark of 66 feet, 8 1/2 inches at Santa Margarita.
According to PrepCaltrack.com, that's the best mark by a Los Angeles County athlete since 1976.
Katnik, who's headed to USC, has his sights on 70 feet this season, so every meet there's going to be intrigue to see when and if he can reach 70 feet.
It's been a good year for Filipino connections. There's Kobe Paras of Cathedral, Sedrick Barefield of Corona Centennial and now Tyler Alfelor of Los Angeles Franklin.
Only 5 feet 9, the senior scored 33 points in a City Section Division III playoff opener and had 24 points last week in Franklin's semifinal win over North Hollywood. Now he'll try to lead the Panthers in Friday's 8 p.m. final against Bernstein at Roybal.
Alfelor is averaging nearly 15 points a game.
"He's a great kid," Coach Robin Cardona said. "His dream is to go to the Philippines and play basketball."
