Two Bakersfield College wrestlers placed at the San Francisco State Open U21 Tournament on Nov. 3.

The team’s placers were 149 pounder Max Ramirez and heavyweight Josh Davis who both finished in fifth place in their respective weight classes.

The winners in the two weight classes were Max Hvolbek from Stanford at 149 pounds and Nathan Butler from UNA-Stanford in the heavyweight division.

BC took six wrestlers who had an overall win percentage of 70 percent or higher to compete in this tournament that featured both junior colleges and four-year colleges.

“We thought the men we took were good enough to perform for other schools to look at their abilities and recruit them,” said head coach Bill Kalivas.

Seeing the level of talent at the tournament was good for the team because it shows them what it takes to compete the next level explained Kalivas.

With BC being able to place a couple of wrestlers in the tournament was a good sign, “Seeing the type of talent there, it’s a testament to the athletes we do get here in Bakersfield,” Kalivas said.

BC’s next meet is the SCWA Eastern Conference Tournament here on campus in the gymnasium on Nov. 16.
