The 4th Annual Philippines Wrestling Showcase at Vallejo, California, USA

By: Jason A. Guiducci

Year four is in the books! The fourth annual showcase saw the Springstowne Academy lead the event in sheer numbers in the middle school class. New talent made the trek to Vallejo however, including Isaiah Medina of American Canyon who scored three victories. A pair of wrestlers Christian Cabuag and Adam Macedo from the Silicon Valley made the trip as did Maylin Reyes of American Canyon. For the Springstowne Academy, top performances were put in by Marc de Guzman, Samantha Dollete, and Mililani Rose Jimenez-Diolanto who were both 2-0 for the afternoon portion.

The high school/open main event saw some familiar faces as "Mr. Showcase" Jeremiah Esguerra scored a victory to extend his record showcase win total and local coaching legend Carl Lastrella returned to the mat to pick up a few ins of his own. Quite possibly the most impressive wrestler in the field was Joshua Villaflor of Elk Grove who was participating in his 1st showcase. Villaflor donned in a Minnesota Golden Gopher’s singlet, was dominant enroute to winning all three of his matches.

Next year looks to be a big year, as the event will be entering its 5th year. We hope to see you there, as we will commemorate a half a decade of wrestling fun!!!
