Photo by Greg Knight Contreras, Rogers compete at state tournament Greg Knight Sports Editor For two Chester wrestlers, Tony Rogers and Javier Contreras, the 2015 season went to its apex last week at the California Interscholastic Federation championships in Bakersfield. The pair, who were champions in the Five-Star League, took to the mat and were successful early before falling out of competition late on the first day with records of 2-2 and 1-2, respectively. The trip to the championships was the culmination of a stellar season for both young men, with Contreras, a senior, earning a 37-12 overall record in the 170-pound class and freshman Rogers taking a 31-11 record at 220 pounds. Contreras also blasted his opponents this season with decisions coming on 29 pins. Rogers had 21 pins on the mat. A bragging right for Chester at this year's tournament was the fact that Chester was the only school in Division III/IV to qualify two wrestlers to attend the tournament. Chester's head wrestling coach, Tom Rogers, said he was proud of the strength his wrestlers showed in getting as far as they did in the season. "Javier, as well as Tony, were both league champions this year and the effort Javier 'put out, as a senior, was just amazing," Rogers said. Rogers also gave kudos to Tony for the effort he put forth0n the mat in the 2015 season "Tony had an awesome year and beat'what I tell the freshmen every year, which is to have a winning record above 50 percent," Rogers said. "31-11 is way above 50 percent." Looking forward, Rogers said Tony has already made it clear that he wants to return to the state championships as a sophomore -- and bring back some medals for his efforts. "We made a pretty strong statement and showing by getting to the state tournament," Rogers added. "Tony is especially interested in getting back there next yar and bring back the hardware I'm pretty excited because, with a little more hard Work(we should be back here again next season." ...... .,.,!.,, ) ! , : The Trojans have four returning Seniors on this season's squad.

"When we got that first run, we were just trying to get even up with this Loyalton team," Kelsch said. "We had not played them in four years and had no idea what we were getting into. In the second, we did what we have been working on in practice, which is just putting the ball in play. We started making contact and not really worrying about where the ball went, we just wanted to put it out on the field." Kelsch also commented on what he thought of the seven-run drive the Trojans put together in the third -- and on how one of his players' previously cold bats got very warm in a hurry. "That third inning was really big for us and it was great because everybody started making contact with the ball, and Buus made excellent use of his skills on defense," he added. "It was also a good inning for Craig (Martynn) since he was having trouble in the In'st and second with hitting. He came right out and hit that double RBI, which really helped us a lot." The Trojans will travel this Thursday and Friday to the Los Molinos tournament before returning to Plumas County on March 20 to face the Chester Volcanoes on the road. Results for the Monday, March 9, game against the Vols at home were not available by press time. Quincy )itcher Toby Buus tosses one of his 10 strikeouts to a Loyalton batter last week.
