CIF State Wrestling brackets: San Bernardino County wrestlers highlighted

CIF State Wrestling brackets, with lSan Bernardino County wrestlers highlighted. Some of the locals highlighted might be from the Inland Valley (San Dimas in particular). And yes, I know the name of Rancho Cucamonga’s Cody Fahamokioa’s name is misspelled on the 220 bracket. Really, CIF, is it that hard to spell?

Bloomington wrestling has eyes on CIF-SS Individual Tournament title

Could this finally be the year?
Bloomington High boys wrestling co-coach Gabe Schaefer isn’t overly confident, but he certainly hopes this is the year.
For the last four years, Bloomington finished second to Covina Northview at the CIF-SS Wrestling Individual Championships. But this time around, as the Central Division individual championships begin on Friday at Grand Terrace High School, Bloomington might be a favorite.
“We’ve done our homework,” Schaefer said. “(Long Beach) Millikan is good. Palm Desert has a few studs. Villa Park and Yorba Linda, they always produce. It’s a good opportunity. I like to be the one chasing. … We’re a good tournament team. We just have to go and wrestle.”
Bloomington has 12 league champions and one runner-up from the Sunkist League finals qualifying for CIF.
Several area leagues are included in the Central Division: Baseline, Miramonte, San Andreas as well as the Sunkist.
Ayala is also hosting the Eastern Division, including the Hacienda, Mountain Valley and Palomares Leagues.
Medal matches are scheduled for 2 p.m. Saturday, with the top five wrestlers in each weight class advancing to next week’s CIF-SS Masters Meet at Citizens Business Bank Arena.

My take: it was just bad fortune for Bloomington to be in the same division as one of the most consistent programs in the CIF-SS, Northview. Leagues are placed in divisions based on strength of the league (not teams), so that each division is about equal in overall strength to any other.

Fortune changed this year, but part of that is Bloomington having its own success and has been able to be moved into a different division. If Bloomington wins, it will be well-deserved for a program that works so hard.

VIDEO: Bloomington wrestling co-coach Gabe Schaefer on key matches in CIF-SS loss

In every close dual-meet wrestling match, there are some swing matches, and Bloomington co-coach Gabe Schaefer talks about some of them. Every match has a winner, and since Northview won 31-28 (although the final score included a Bloomington forfeit win in the final match), it would’ve taken only one match to swing Bloomington’s way for the Bruins to win.

VIDEO: Bloomington wrestling co-coach Gabe Schaefer on loss in CIF-SS championship match

Bloomington came up short for the CIF-SS title, ending the Bruins’ string of five straight CIF-SS Dual-Meet Wrestling titles. In the individual wrestling tournament, Bloomington had been runner-up to Northview four straight years, but the teams are in different divisions this year. But they are in the same duals division for the first time, so Northview could still be a thorn in Bloomington’s side.

VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS: Northview beats Bloomington for CIF-SS Dual-Meet Wrestling Title

Two interesting overtime matches above. First, a rare match that goes to OT 0-0, then is decided on a Northview takedown in the first overtime.
The second match was decided by a controversial reversal awarded to Bloomington at the end of the second half of the second overtime, for a 6-5 victory. Some incredible matches, and both of those were early as Bloomington built a 19-3 lead.
In the end, however, Northview rallied for a 31-28 victory over Bloomington to claim the CIF-SS Dual-Meet Wrestling Central Division title.
