James Logan High's wrestling team continued its season-long quest of keeping De La Salle in its rearview mirror, defeating the Spartans 34-22 Saturday night in the North Coast Section Division I East Bay dual team championship match at Dougherty Valley.
Livermore won the Division II East Bay title, handling Las Lomas 43-27.
"Our guys wrestled really smart and really physical," Colts coach Eli Baghosian said. "We didn't want to give up any big points to De La Salle. They're the defending dual and tournament champions, and we want to challenge them."
Two weeks ago, the Colts finished 60 points ahead of De La Salle at the Mission San Jose Invitational.
The Division I championship match started with Logan's Jacob Macalooley beating Jack Walsh 8-2 at 145 pounds, and the Colts never let up. Logan's Amandep Kane followed with a 4-3 victory over Justin Pease.
The Spartans won the next two bouts, including a 64-second pin by Gavin Hummel at 170, for 9-6 lead. But it was short-lived. The Colts wheeled out two more returning NCS medalists and each won, including a 69-second pin from Clayton Hartwell.
Jacob Donato, also a returning NCS place-winner, clinched the match and the title for the Colts with a 17-6 romp over the Spartans' Kevin Dille.
De La Salle's three returning NCS place-winners -- Donovin Guerrero (112), David Conte (126) and Nathan Cervantes (135) -- recorded victories, with Cervantes getting a second-round pin.
In the Division II championship, Livermore opened with nine victories in the first 11 matches, including five pins, as it rolled past Las Lomas.
Jacob Roach (152), Dylan McNaney (170) and Bryan Cortez (120) each scored first-round pins, and Keith Neal (220) and Logan Potter (106) had second-round pins.
The Cowboys were more than able to withstand three straight pins by Bobby Caldwell (126), Robby Baker (132) and Nyjmba Nazarob (138) in the final three matches.
NCS Championships: James Logan produced four finalists and three champions to win the team title with 193.5 points at Pittsburg.
At 106 pounds, James Logan's Talissa Noriega was the first to grab a title with a first-round pin of Ukiah's Harmonie Roberts (28-1).
Two matches later the Colts' Wendy Ho (116 pounds) pinned No. 1 seed Eva Piroth of Albany in the second round .
Alyssa Hernandez at 143 pounds finished off the title win for James Logan with a quick pin of Molly Trejo of Maria Carillo.
Albany High was second with 158 points. Chanel Chawalit, the No. 1 seed, pinned Camaryn Butler of Foothill in one minute, 10 seconds for the 126-pound title. Albany finished with two title winners as Nallely Patino pinned favorite Kristina Artega of Clayton Valley Charter in the 150-pound final.
The top three finishers in each weight class advance to the CIF State Invitational on Feb. 28 in Visalia.
