Five local high school wrestlers advanced to the second day of the CIF Southern Section Masters Meet on Friday at Cerritos College in Norwalk.

Fountain Valley freshmen Sean Solis (106 pounds) and Zach Parker (113) and sophomore Max Wilner (160) won their first two matches to earn a spot in the main draw quarterfinals. They will qualify for the state meet if they are able to win their first match on Saturday.

Nico Damschen, the Barons’ 170-pounder, and Austin Osumi, a 195-pounder for Newport Harbor, won their matches in the second round of consolation to advance to the second day.

Luis Ramirez, the Barons’ 145-pounder, had his season ended after going 1-2 on the day. So did Fountain Valley upper-weight wrestlers Matthew Fee (220) and Christian Zeglinski (285).


Marina’s Mike McCoy (120), Edison’s Jacob Iida (152), Newport Harbor’s Miguel Licona (182) and Corona del Mar’s Emilio Franco were eliminated after going 0-2 in the tournament.

Vikings heavyweight Daniel Escamilla did not wrestle at Masters after finishing as the runner-up in the Northern Division Individual championships last Saturday at Perris Citrus Hill High. Marina coach Chris Rasmussen said that Escamilla separated his left shoulder in the final.

Wrestling resumes on Saturday with the quarterfinals and the third round of consolation at 9 a.m.
