He scored a 4-0 decision over Ventura’s Justin Ledesma in the 138-pound final. Uyesaka lost a one-point decision to Ledesma in the league dual meet.

“Jeffy wrestled a very smart and stuck to the game plan,” DP coach Anthony Califano said. “He didn’t give up any early takedowns. He scored a takedown in the first period and a reversal in the third to win. It will help his seed at CIF.”

Patrick Konkol also avenged a one-point loss against a Ventura wrestler to win the 195-pound weight class. Konkol defeated Abunduz in double overtime, 2-1.
