Individually, the Tigers were led by Bradley Johnson and Ryan Pruitt, who advanced to the finals of their respective 140- and 152-pound weight classes.

Johnson dropped a one-point decision in his championship round match to Isaac Westphal of tournament host Alhambra.

Pruitt, a sophomore who was seeded third coming into the tournament, advanced to the semifinals and knocked off the No. 2 seed from Mission San Jose High (Fremont, Calif.). Pruitt went 3-1 on the day with one pin.

Ryan Olson (103), Devon Barker (112), Bryan Kaplan (119), Tony Ferris (125) and Matt Castro (275) all went 1-2 on the day to place fourth in their respective divisions.

Cameron Ames (130) and Jake Williams (145) both fell to narrow losses in the second round then battled back with impressive three straight wins each to earn fifth-place medals. Ames had three pins and Williams two en route to their medals.
