Bishop Wins One Of Three Matches

Closing out his wrestling season with a trip to the State Wrestling Meet in Bakersfield, junior Myles Bishop went 1-2 in the opening day of the event on Friday.

"That capped off a 49-10 season, a very good season for him," said coach Derek Scott of his 135-pound standout. "He won his first match, 7-1, then in his second match he lost 6-3, there were a few close points at the end of the first and second rounds that didn't go his way."

The wrestler that beat Bishop in the second round went on to place fifth in the state tournament.

"We felt if he won that match, that would have given him a chance to place," said Scott. "He was right there."

But the match points didn't go Bishop's way and he took the tough loss. That put him in a match against a Vacaville wrestler he had faced previously in the Section competition and the outcome was the same as the first time the two met; Bishop's opponent got the better of him.

"The kid wrestled in a style that wasn't very good for Myles to handle," Scott noted.

In the opener on Friday, Bishop pinned Vinny Maraj of Yucca Valley in the first round. He lost to Jonathan Ronny of James Logan in round two and fell to Vacaville's Josiah Biondo by virtue of a second round pin in his final match of the season. Biondo finished eighth overall.

With three matches on Friday, Bishop completed his season, not advancing to the second day.

"If he has another off-season like he did this past year, we are confident he can get back to the State Meet and place," Scott said of hopes for Bishop's senior year.
